We stay at many B&Bs, but this is our current champion. First, Berna is the most gracious hostess, putting on a pot of tea when we arrived late, making sure there was a fire when we stayed out late, and even helping me catch the Euro finals on the telly! She gave us great suggestions on where to park for our night out in Galway, where to go for music, and a great dinner recommendation. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and Salthill is an attraction on its own. I heard several locals tell tourists they need to visit Salthill because of its character and lovely strand; we stayed there! And the food: the Cashel blue cheese pancakes and the smoked salmon and eggs were incredible!
One tip: While Devondell is in a great location just outside the city proper, Devon park road is one of those maddening roads that starts/stops/splits here and there. Use Google maps and street view to "drive" your way in and it really helps!
