It is so refreshing to find such high quality hospitality, gorgeous food and inspiring artwork in an overnight stay. I wished I had more time to enjoy the welcome ambience and comfortable environment. (I really liked the fresh basil on the window sill). Highly recommended.

'the stop' should be your first and last stop for somewhere to stay in Galway. It has everything going for it - a beautiful house with equally beautiful and artisitic interior design that makes the house even more interesting. Absolutely spotless and comfortable, great local food combined with an eclectic menu for breakfast. All this and more and all a stones throw from the centre of Galway. It is an extremely welcoming house thanks to Emer and Russell and their unobtrusive manner. I would thoroughly recommend staying here to anyone. A group of us stayed here in March and we were all of the same opinion. Don't bother looking at anywhere else people - this is where you want to stay :-)

I just stayed at the Stop for two nights. We had a wonderful stay in accommodation which is spotless and welcoming. The interior decor is really cool and clearly reflects the artistic background of the owners. Russell was an excellent host without being overbearing or trying too hard. The food was delicious, I would return just for the homemade bread and jam!
The property is also very convenient for Galway city and just a short walk to all the bars and restaurants in town.
I really enjoyed staying here and already look forward to returning.

We stayed at The Stop in March 2014 for 2 nights. We could have happily spent much longer! Russ and Emer are lovely hosts, friendly and accommodating. The house is well decorated, everything is fresh and new, and beds are comfortable. Breakfast was made to order with locally sourced ingredients and there were several delicious options. They also gave us perfect recommendations for restaurants, cafes and pubs nearby. The house is a 5-10 minute walk to the center of town, a perfect location. We really could not have asked for anything more. I would recommend The Stop to anyone visiting Galway, it's really a remarkable place with a relaxed and friendly vibe.

Room Tip: We saw most of the rooms and they were all lovely.

The B&B is very nicely decorated with artsy pieces but in a homey, not pretentious way. The hosts were super nice and gave us a self-drawn map of their personal recommendations in the city. Location is great--less than 10 min walk to city center and grocery store right across the street. Bedroom was clean and comfortable, plenty of hot water and good wifi connection. Breakfast was top notch too. Definitely stay here if you're visiting Galway!

I stayed at The Stop last summer and found it to be clean, friendly and modern. I would recommend it to anyone. Russell, Emer and the other staff members were perfect hosts and were very helpful in helping us to locate local attractions. Russell's breakfasts were generously sized and Emer's homemade cookies were delicious. The Stop is ideally located close to the centre of Galway City and is also within easy walking distance of Salthill. I'll definitely be booking to stay there again!

Our stay at The Stop was cozy, clean and comfortable - Russell is so kind and welcoming, he looked after us so well and had some really great Galway tips. The breakfast each morning was delicious and we loved the bright dining room and the quirky sitting room (where you can help yourself to tea, coffee and delicious homemade cookies) The location is perfect and there's a shop and ATM right across the road which is a bonus. Rooms are spotlessly clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. It was my first B&B experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
