“Very Good”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

The location of Lynfield was excellent, a 10 minute walk to the downtown core. The rooms were huge and bedding luxurious and beds comfortable. Lots of hot water too. Food was very good and Adrian took good care of us and had lots of stories to share that really enhanced the experience. Only downside was the rooms lighting was a little dim and bathroom didn't have a rack for towels, but those were no show stoppers... the price was great and we would highly recommend to anyone else going to Galway!! And we would definitely stay here again!! Thanks Adrian!!

I must say i don't normally do these reviews but lynfield deserves top marks for being reasonably priced and without compromising quality.

The staff are friendly and the rooms are of a higher standard than most in the area.

i would certainly recommend this place to anyone who plans on visiting galway in the near future.

Room Tip: Call Ahead and they will get you what you need they certainly did for me

I stayed in Lynfield B&B during the 2012 Galway race week. It was a great experience as the location beside Eyre Square and the rail station was very convenient. Quality accommodation, fabulous breakfast and exceptionally friendly and professional management made my stay a great success.

Considering how expensive hotels are within the Galway City Center, I found the Lynfield guesthouse to be just right for my traveling needs. The rooms are spacious, the mattresses were among the most comfortable I've slept in during my many travels, and the proprietors were friendly and helpful. There was also excellent shower pressure and plenty of hot water, which are things not always guaranteed in hotels abroad. It's a little noisy at night but that's due mainly to the thin walls found in non-corporate hotels; I got used to it after the second night.

We were traveling around Galway looking at a few (terrible) B&B's for our stay during the Arts and Music Festival and had this lovely man, Adrian, direct us to his place on College St. Not only was Lynfield Inn the cleanest place we saw, but it had the biggest bedrooms, the nicest mattresses (memory foam!), and one heck of a cute family which we preferred to give our money to over some corporate hotel. Although there was no breakfast due to construction (which we didn't notice at all), they pointed us in the direction of a great cafe and even helped us park our car in their private lot. All in all, cute family, great space, 5 min walk from downtown, and a great deal for what it was. Thanks for making our stay feel like home!

Room Tip: All rooms are are good size, but we were lucky enough to get the top floor. Thanks again!

Currently not serving breakfast, tiny room, reading lamp over the bed didn't work, old sock was left in a drawer, and the mattress was old and sagged badly. On the up side, the proprietor Trish was very pleasant, and parking space was provided.

Room Tip: Look carefully at the room and the bed before you stay here.
