“First trip to Ireland felt like home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Mary and Pat are so wonderful! We were welcomed like they had known us for years. Their home is so comfortable and quiet. The room/beds very clean.
Full irish breakfast is a feast and the best scrambled eggs I've ever eaten.
Pat and Mary were a great source for information and went out of their way to help us get our tour organized.
Mary's flower gardens are stunning.
The location is perfect for so many different activities, from Connemara to the Cliffs and just a short drive into Galway.
Absolutely loved Birchgrove B&B in Oranmore
Thank you so much,
Sally and David T.

We had a great time at Birchgrove House. Mary and Pat welcomed us in a way, we never had thought of. Our room was very comfortable. We enjoyed Marys Irish breakfast and that she helped us to plan our day. We felt like coming home!! We will never forget the time at Birchgrove House and are sure to come back as far as possible.

I think being a repeat guest says a lot about a place and we are such visitors. Mary and Pat have redecorated since we were last there and the new lounge furniture is so comfortable you could easily fall asleep there. The best things about Birchgrove are it's hosts. Mary and Pat go out of their way to make your stay there memorable. They have a wealth of information about the area and are ready with suggestions about your days outing. This is a wonderful place to use as a base and make day trips. While we only spent one night there on this trip, we hope to return again soon. Thanks Mary & Pat for your very warm welcome.

My wife and I had never been to Ireland, our first stop was Birchgrove B&B!!! What a great way to get a trip underway. We were greeted like family members, each day began with a wonderful Irish breakfast and ended with a relaxing chat about things that we saw and what we might do the next day. My wife has celiac and must be 100% gluten-free, no problem, we had alerted Mary before we arrived and it was never an issue! Mary's breakfasts were prepared with care and my wife had no worries...also delicious !!
Staying with Mary and Pat set a very high standard for the rest of our trip, when we return to Ireland without question we will begin our trip in Oranmore with our new Irish "family".

Birchgrove has been my B&B of choice in the Galway area for many a year. Pat & Mary go out of their way to make your stay most comfortable and nothing is too much trouble for them. It's not just a place to stay on your journey but like a home from home. The rooms are spick and span and in good order, the breakfast is very filling and varied. Beyond that, Pat & Mary give good advice on places to go and things to see if you're at a bit of a loose end and there are many things of interest available from this location. Thoroughly recommendable.

I have been lucky enough to stay in some lovely places over the years but I have never felt the need to review them. That all changed after I was fortunate enough to spend a few days at Birchgrove. Whilst it provides an excellent base from which to explore the beautiful west of Ireland, what really sets Birchgrove apart from all the rest are the proprietors Mary and Pat Curran. I was met with the warmest of welcomes and felt at home instantly. My room was lovely and clean, and nothing was a bother to Mary and Pat. Breakfast was excellent and sets you up perfectly for a day exploring the surrounding area. Mary and Pat were able to advise on the best places to go and see. Mary and Pat are great fun and full of stories and really do welcome you into their lovely home like one of the family. I can't praise Birchgrove enough, and I will definitely return.
