We stayed in a single and a double room for one night at Dun Aiobhinn House. We were greeted warmly, friendly, and with much trust; we were even given a map, instructions to get to town, information on pubs with live music, and other places to see. We could drop off our luggage earlier and come get it later, without any problems. The rooms were comfortable and in a bit of an old-fashioned way very cosy. It was clean and warm and the Irish breakfast was excellent. It was a very good idea to stay there, even if only for one night, and we would definitely come again.

My partner and I stayed here for one night in January and we really liked it - charming old building, clean, a very easy walk to downtown (10 mins through a very safe area), and an amazing breakfast included. Bonus - we booked the cheapest room the day off, and were upgraded to a lovely 2 room suite with a recently renovated bathroom.
We had considered booking a guest house right in the centre of downtown, but we were so happy we didn't - it was Friday night and the whole area was teeming with "over-watered", underdressed univeristy students!
The only downside was that was cooooold! It was around 9C outside, and I'd be surprised if it were much warmer inside when we were having breakfast.

My friend and I stayed at Dun Aoibann House on a recent trip to Galway. Overall we had a charming experience at this B&B. Upon arriving we were welcomed and had help bringing our bags to the room. Additionally we were provided with a map of Galway and locations of some of the best pubs and dining. The owner also shared with us some great dining deals. The room itself was what you picture when you think B&B: cozy and timeless. If you are fond of standard hotels the room might suprise you, however we purposely chose a B&B and were thrilled by the antique furnishings and room. What is most important was all of the appliances, bathrooms, and outlets were updated and working. Also, the WIFI is excellent.
One of the best things about Dun Aiobhinn house was the provided breakfast. On economical purposes alone, breakfast in Galway could easily cost you 10 Euro so a meal included is nice. Additionally, for the international traveler curious to try a traditional Irish breakfast this provides and excellent opportunity to do so. However, if not everyone in your party is interested in a hot breakfast that have several continential options available.
The only downside of the B&B was potentially the location. It was a little further out from downtown than the maps indicated. You can be garunteed pretty much a 10-25 minute walk to anywhere. However, if you don't mind walking it is a great deal compared to some of the more centrally located places.
Overall, I would reccomend this B&B.

We stayed 3 night in Dun Aoibhinn House and all in all had a great experience. We were told there wouldn't be no breakfast, wrong. There IS a breakfast, and really good one.
Our room was cozy (I especially liked the wooden floor and the shape of the windows). Jim was very friendly and helpful.
One more thing: the location is just perfect. You're close enough to centrum (5-10 mins by walking) but far away enough to have a good night sleep.
We'll be back!

Stayed for 3 nights in downstairs room. Room was clean and good size although slight smell of cigarettes. Great location for exploring the city. Jim and staff were very friendly and provide a good breakfast. Would stay again if we were visiting Galway.
