Terrific breakfasts (he gets his smoked salmon from a friend) and a good location, only about a 10-15 walk from Eyre Square, Shop Street and the waterfront only another five minute walk away. Very accommodating hosts and a very pleasant and comfortable room. Very accommodating as we arrived early and no trouble leaving out bags while we spent two days exploring Galway before beginning a nine day hike through Connemara.

We had such a wonderful time staying with Mike and Brita at the Ardawn House. They made us feel at home from the moment we arrived - giving us tips on what to see especially with our six-year old. The accommodations were extremely comfortable and the hosts were so welcoming to our entire family including our son who treated the house like his own, as he felt so at ease there. And the breakfasts! I still think about them and try to mimic them at home - sourced from fresh, local ingredients and shops. It was so nice to just be able to head downstairs to their inviting and immaculate dining room and start each day with a nutritious and delicious meal. Also, their B&B is on a very nice street, close to everything Galway has to offer.

We felt so at home at the Ardawn House, which is a testament to the warm and kind hosts Mike and Brita are to guests of all ages. Thanks so much for making our stay in Galway such a fun and pleasant one!

We loved our stay at the Ardawn House. We had a very warm welcome upon arriving early, and a place to store our bags until our room was ready. Brita gave us a map of Galway and excellent recommendations about what to do in town. Our room was clean, with an ensuite bathroom. The house was quiet even with no vacancies and families staying at the same time. Brita and her husband made a delicious full Irish breakfast. They were extremely hospitable and flexible with our stay.

The Ardawn is a perfect location with an easy walk into the city center yet easy to navigate by car in and out of town. Our family of three (8 year old child) stayed there midweek for the 3rd and 4th of July, 2018. The accommodations were spectacularly tidy and we could not have felt more comfortable. Breakfast was beautiful and the staff were friendly and very helpful with all of our little questions. And to top everything off, after a beautiful stay and then return home, the owner shipped my forgotten glasses back to me. Kindness is priceless.

It was a beautiful home, and a fantastic experience. We stayed with our 10YO daughter for 3 nights. The proprietors take a genuine interest and special care for their guests. We felt so welcome; it made a huge to our daughter especially, whom was starting to feel homesick after 10 nights away. The location is very convenient to walking into the Galway scene yet just far enough away from the hostels and pubs that the neighborhood was quieter.

Room tip: Rooms have stairs-only access, if you have a mobility issue. It backs up to the greyhound track - you may hear it until @11:30.
