“Everything a B&B Should Be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2011

We stayed at Marless House for four nights in June. We had the large yellow and white room in the front of the house; and although it faces the street, noise was not a problem. The beds were very comfortable and the linens of good quality. The bathroom was not large, but adequate and very clean. The breakfasts were hearty, and there were lots of choices. Mary aims to please! I loved the the porridge! We took two single day tours with the Galway Tour Company which picked us up right in front of the house. There is great bus transportation to the center of Galway and the Salthill Promenade is just down the street. Perfect location! But the highlight of our visit was Mary herself. She was always cheerful, helpful, and humorous. We chose this B&B based on the reviews on Tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed!

this was one of our nicest B&B's on our 10 dray trip to Ireland. Mary surely has the gift of hospitality and made us feel so welcome in her home. She is the ultimate day trip planner complete with great maps of the beautiful city of Galway. Our room was so beautiful and clean and Mary went above and beyond to make sure you were comfortable. Her place is also in a great location with the water and Promendae only 2 blocks away. thank you Mary for a wonderful stay!

I would recommend staying here. The house was clean. The owners very friendly and helpful. Good location. Took the bus around the corner - 5 minutes into Galway. Good breakfasts. Mary was very anxious to please. Also parking off the street.

Marless house is a lovely welcoming B and B. The rooms are immaculate and the shower room also. They are slightly on the small side, but it is a B and B. Mary makes a beautiful breakfast. However, I found that as a young married couple, Mary seems to prefer the company of older guests. We got the impression that this was the market that she aims for. If you enjoy being in a breakfast room full of strangers, where everyone is invited to join in the conversation, then this B and B is for you. We were never invited into the living room area, which she semed to do with all the older guests. She was not there when we arrived, nor when we left. She was upstairs, but did not come down to say goodbye, which left a slight negative feeling with me.

This was only a one night stay in Salthill and I have to say that Marless House was the most enjoyable of experiences. My seven year old neice was with us, and from the get go, the owners got to know her and made her feel special! The food was excellent, rooms immaculate and cozy and the whole experience was a home away from home. Highly recommended!!!!

Mary has a great love for what she does and it shows! We could not fault this accommodation and you could not ask for a more helpful host.

Although we have visited Ireland before, Marless House was our first stay at a B&B rather than a hotel. It was recommended by an Irish cousin and we could not have been more pleased with our stay there. Mary was such a gracious and welcoming hostess and the daily breakfasts prepared by Mary and Tom were the best meals that we had during our 12 days in Ireland. The rooms were very clean and well furnished. Mary's recommendations for Galway activities were invaluable. The website's logo is "sleep soundly, eat well and leave with a smile" and Marless House scored a perfect 10 on all three criteria.
