Reviewed August 7, 2011

I stayed here in July 2011 and had a wonderfully,relaxing time.
The location is perfect for walks down to the bay and easy access to Galway city itself.
As for the breakfast it was unreal!
I will stay here again for sure and enjoy the great hospitality of the house once more.
Thanks again!

My girlfriend and I finished a little tour of Ireland with a 3 day stay in Galway and stayed with Seamus and Geraldine at Shanlin House based on the wonderful reviews on Tripadvisor. We could not have been happier with the accommodation, location or the hospitality! Ger was more than happy to drop us off for dinner in the village (Oranmore) and offered excellent recommendations for day trips and sight seeing. If you want to be in a quiet restful area with easy access to the city this is a spot we would highly recommend.

We are French and we knew the Shanlin House on the web.
During our journey in Ireland we spent a pleasant stay in a family frame at Seamus and Géraldine.
Shanlin house B*B to Oranmore (village in the Irish charm) is situated not far from Galway.
Ideally situated for the irish western discovery (Connemara in the North, Cliffs of Moher in the South...)
Seamus and Géraldine welcomed us warmly.
To them, smile and sympathy are every day there. That is why we stayed all our stay there.
They were also good advice for the discovery of a maximum of magnificent sites.
The comfortable room and the conveniences are perfected and the delicious Irish breakfast is ideal for the good start of the day.
During our next stay we shall return without hesitation to them.
We think of taking it our 2 daughters.
With the pleasure to see them again.

I have stayed here 4 times over the last couple of years and really love it can't wait to go back again. The accomodation is excellent and great value and the breakfasts are something else. The location is really good as l go for business and it is really central for travelling around. I would tell anyone not to hesitate just book it you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: I have stayed 4 times in different rooms they were all lovely, clean and spacious.

My friend and I stayed here in October 2010 as a base from which to visit family in the area. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfast excellent. Geraldine's husband now runs the place and he was welcoming, efficient and accommodating (going so far as to run me up to the airport to pick up my rental car one morning.) The area is quiet. It was a perfect location to visit family in Oranmore and Galway, plus a good place from which to explore the Burren and Connamara. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here purely by chance, when travelling round Ireland. We have stayed in quite a few B&Bs in our time, but until now, have never been minded to publish a review on Tripadvisor. This B&B is welcoming without being interfering, the rooms are as good, if not better, than you'd expect from a hotel, and the breakfast was delicious and good quality food. I would certainly recommend this as a place to stay to my friends.
