“Absolute Gem!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2009

My stay was for exams in the area. We had previously stayed with Anna and Stephen for a wedding in the locality and our stay was brilliant. Anna and Stephen are so friendly and can't do enough for you. When I stayed for my exams Anna looked after me like I was one of her own!!! The beds are the most comfortable Ive ever slept in! The view from the house is spectacular! I would have no problem recommending this haven to anyone - in fact I already have and I have already booked my return stay and this time - no exams !!!! - All for pleasure!!! I can't wait! P.S. The breakfast is yum as well!! No complaints here!!!

I recently stayed at the Claremount House with friends! We had a fantastic time, the rooms were very big, modern and clean, the breakfast was amazing and the hosts are some of the nicest and warmest people you'll ever meet! Overall a great experience, we highly recommend it!

We had an excellent time at Claremount house. Both Steve and Anna went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and charmed us with their fabulous Irish hospitality. The rooms was extremely clean, comfortable, and warm (which is a bonus in Ireland in the winter). We felt at home and welcome in their home and would not hesitate to return for a longer stay next time we are in the Galway area.

Our hosts were amazing and warm, we felt right at home after a long and rainy drive from Cork. The beds were amazing, Anna and Steven really took care of us (not something you find at hotels) and the breakfast they prepared for us the next morning was the best we had our whole trip! Wonderful people, very reasonable prices, clean and comfortable. Need we say more? We have recommended this place to many of our friends who are considering a trip to Ireland.

  • Liked — The wonderful hosts and the amazing view
  • Disliked — Distance to downtown, but the view was worth it

We didn't want to go all the way into Galway, so spotted Claremount House while driving through Salthill. The owners were so welcoming. They immediately served us tea and biscuits. The home was immaculate, and the bedroom and beds were the best we had in three weeks in Ireland and the UK. We thought we were sleeping on a cloud. The bathroom was very clean and new-looking. The owners were former restaurant owners, so their breakfast was also quite good.
We walked along the ocean promenade in the morning. Good place for an early morning swim.
Price was right in line with B&B's throughout Ireland.

The entire experience, from the initial inquiry to checking out was absolutely great! We stayed for a week and were treated with great warmth, respect and hospitality. The daily breakfast was always delicious and prepared to order. Anna baked brown bread and scones every night! (what an aroma)
Anna and Steven were the most gracious hosts imaginable and their family made us feel as if we belonged. We used the house as our home base as we visited all the wonderful attractions, including the Aran Islands, Cliffs of Moher, the Burren and Connamara.
The house is comfortable and clean and the rooms were beautiful.
Great beds and duvets, ample closet space and wonderful hot showers.
Its a short walk along the beach into Salt Hill, and very easy to get to Galway center, via bus, cab or car. Perfect location!
If we travel to Ireland, we will definitely call Anna and Steven at the Claremount House. We highly recommend this B&B.
