“Fabulous Stay at Claddagh Moon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

After several days in Belfast for the 2012 World Irish Dancing Championships, we traveled to Oranmore and the Claddagh Moon B&B. Because of it's central location and close proximity to Galway, we used the Claddagh Moon as our main base of stay, taking several driving day trips, and a bus tour out of Galway. Traveling with me was my family (husband & daughter) and my parents. We arrived early and Rose & Joe had rooms ready for us. The rooms were spotless and spacious! Our family room had 3 beds (a double and 2 singles) and my parents had a double room. All bathrooms were en suite. There was plenty of parking at the B&B and it was only a short walk to the center of Oranmore with food, shopping & banking. Rose & Joe were so very nice, friendly, and welcoming. They went out of their way to make our stay wonderful - helping us get laundry done, mailing postcards, and even helped print our boarding passes for the trip home. They answered all of our questions and had great information to help us plan our day trips. Breakfast was made to order at whatever time you requested - and was truly excellent. Rose even remembered what we drank and had that waiting for us on the table every morning. The B&B was quiet making it easy to get a good night's rest. I highly recommend the Claddagh Moon B&B!

We had two couples in our group and stayed for one night at the Claddagh Moon, After driving in from Dublin they allowed us to check in early, which was very nice as we were tired after the overnight flight. Very good size room and spotless. Plenty of parking area in the back on their B&B. Only a short 5 minute walk to the pubs and stores. The B&B is on a quite side street. The hosts were so nice and friendly welcoming us to their place. Breakfest in the AM was great. Only a short distance from Galway for site seeing. I would tell everyone to stay here if in the area, you will be happy you did.

Our daughter is in med school in Dublin and we visit her from time to time, but we LOVE Galway and we always find a way to visit and take in the town and its great music. This is our third time to this very clean and modern B & B that gets us into Galway fast and yet we can come here for a quiet nights' sleep and hop down to the pub if we are not that tired out. so it has location and is a great place to center your visit. As usual everything is top drawer. It is clean and well maintained. Rose is a font of knowledge and can put you on the right track regarding Galway. Joe is just a personable and we now, after three times, can actually say that we have some very nice friends in Ireland.

Room Tip: I don't think it makes a difference-we have had three different rooms and all were just fine.

Great B&B -- My husband and daughter stayed here for 1 night and the rooms were spacious, clean, the owner Rose was friendly, and breakfast was tasty! My daughter also had a great time saying hello to the chickens! We would definitely stay again!

Midway through our rather awkward and lukewarm stay at the Hanley house (aka Claddagh Moon B&B), I resolved not to leave a review so as not to damage what was clearly a very small family business.  However, we were kept up late while they had loud guests over, right below our room.  Then on our way out the door, we were surprised to receive a healthy dose of political insults and lectures with our breakfast.  Let me be clear, all we wanted was to be fed and settle the bill so we could be on our merry way down the beautiful west coast of Ireland.  We were polite but did not encourage conversation. 
 
This is how our breakfast went: while seating us, Rose chattered on about one subject or another for about 10 minutes, then went to get us tea and chatted for another 5-7 minutes.  Then came toast and non-stop chatter for another 10 minutes or so, etc, etc.  During this diatribe, she managed to lecture us on American politics (and yes, I also know that she lived in NY and has dual citizenship) and insult some of our beloved past presidents, despite our numerous hints (apparently too subtle) that this was not a healthy direction to take conversation in front of this particular couple of Americans.  When we finally had all of our breakfast in front of us, we couldn’t get it down fast enough in our hurry to get back on the road, and suddenly Rose appeared to realize her error and started fishing for compliments or perhaps a clue that we wouldn’t leave her a bad review on TA.  I'm genuinely sorry for the review but feel it's necessary.  

And don’t even try to get directions.  My multiple requests were ignored.  I had to drive down the main street of the village until I recognized the house in the picture.  I’m not kidding.
