I stayed here on saturday 9th March with my sister, after we had settled in we were just leaving our room when we were greeted by a big cat in the landing, im sure to animal lovers this isnt a big deal for animals to roam around the house but the cat was quiet annoyng also there is a hygiene issue as far as im concerned i was left wondering had the cat been in the room on the bed etc it put me right off as im quiet allergic to cats. The room was tiny, was very dated in decor (the whole house was)and had damp patches on the ceiling. Breakfast sunday morning was sufficient, i found it very unprofessional though that the b&b staff were in the kitchen talking at the tops of their voices for all to hear. It was close to the eyre square which was a plus.

Wow! This was such a nice end to a very long day. My kids (ages 12 & 15) and I had driven from Cork, stopped at Blarney Castle (about a 2 1/2 hour visit), then on to Dingle, and finally Galway. We arrived around 8 p.m., exhausted. We were given a lovely room with comfortable beds, a good size bathroom (although it could use a shelf near the sink to accommodate toothbrushes etc.), lots of storage (which is helpful if staying for a number of days), coffee/tea facilities, hair dryer, and t.v. This B&B is a quick walk to the city centre, so you can leave the car in the parking lot. It's about a 2 hour drive to the Cliffs of Moher (up Corkscrew Hill!)...maybe less, if it's not raining and foggy. Helen is very helpful with suggestions and directions. Breakfasts were good, and if you don't want a full Irish breakfast, the staff will prepare a scaled down version, My only disappointment....we didn't have enough time to spend in Galway. We would definitely consider College Crest Guest House if we have the chance to visit again.

I stayed for two nights , firstly the reception area is a mess you are literaly in the kitchen of the house. Our room was clean but really dated furniture and bedding .The bathrom was tiny no space for toiletries and shower very poor. It was all wooden floors which were very noisey got woken up both nights by the noise of the floors when other guests were returning to their rooms. Breakfast had no choice either full irish or ceral. Breakfast room also way to small. only positive was location only 5 mins from eyre square.

Room Tip: Dont think you could have a quite room,the floors and room keys just too noisey.

My friend and I recently stayed here and really enjoyed our stay. We were greeted with a warm welcome on a freezing day in Galway. We checked in and our twin room was perfect, clean and tidy and nice, warm and cozy. We were asked if we had been to Galway before and we said no, our host gave us a map and advised us of the places to see and things to do and advised us of two pubs to enjoy great food, live music and good craic. The Christmas Markets had just started in Eyre Square, so that was our first stop and then on to the shopping district and down towards the Spanish Arch and the water.

After a very cold day of wandering around the city it was great come back to the warmth of the B&B to thaw out and have a great nights sleep. Breakfast in the morning was great too, full Irish Cooked Breakfast or you could just have a continental one if you liked.

The B&B is in a brilliat location just 5 - 7 minute walk to Eyre Square, Bus and Train Stations, then only a couple more minutes to the main shopping and entertainment areas. We will definately staying there again when we return to Galway....Would recommend it to Everyone!!!!!!!

Have stayed at this B&B for the second time now and never regretted it. The location is brilliant (5 minutes walk to the city centre, but quiet enough even though located at a street), the staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are big enough, clean and comfortable. I can only recommend staying there to everyone going to Galway. Looking forward to my next stay there.
