My friend and I enjoyed four nights at the Almara House in mid-July 2012, and we were so impressed! The decor is lovely, and everything is immaculate, from the bedrooms to the bathrooms to the breakfast room. There is a nice coffee-and-tea station in the second-floor hallway, and a water cooler.
Breakfast was a real treat, served in two courses (you choose the night before), with ample bread, butter and jam. Even the place settings are artful and elegant!
The hosts, Matthew and Mary, are very gracious and pleasant, and, when they aren't too busy serving breakfast and such, charming conversationalists.
Almara House is located in Merlin Park, a close-in suburb of Galway, and a short and inexpensive bus ride from the center of Galway. The bus stop is right outside, and it takes you to Eyre Square in about ten minutes, for 1.70 Euros.
