We were attending a wedding in the Shannon Oaks hotel and stayed in this B&B for the night of the wedding. The owners are Una and David and were extremely friendly and welcoming and run a very professional B & B. This house is quite new and very clean and well appointed with all mod cons. It is only 3 minutes on foot from the town and the Hotel, but David even offered to drive us down, which was very kind and would have been much appreciated had it been a wet evening. The wedding went very well, unfortumately involving a very late night and a touch of a hangover, so although we were just a wee bit late down for breakfast we got a quick eggs on toast which helped put us back on track. We had planned to continue the Bank holiday weekend in Galway City but since it was so nice here we stayed another night, and the house was full both nights, yet we never heard any noise. Good parking space outside and you have your own front door and room key so you can come and go as you please. Breakfast was excellent with health drinks, juice, cereal and plenty of choice for the Full Irish. David is also a mad music fan and we had great chats about various American singers as diverse as -: Muddy Watters/ Seasick Steve/. /Howlin Wolf/ Leadbelly, our own Van and of course Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson. In fact, he said he would willingly keep Bob Dylan and Kristofferson both for free if they ever visited Portumna. So, since they are both touring in Ireland in the next while, heres your chance lads!! You can never be too rich or too famous to have a free B & B!! He kindly gave me one of his favourite Willie Nelson CD's when we were leaving ! I hope you enjoy the Dylan concert in Limerick next month David.. Anyway , we would recommend Portumna House for all the reasons above but my only advice would be to make sure you book in advance as they appear to always be busy, which is never a bad sign of any operation within the hospitality industry. We will be back in County Galway again soon and will make a point of staying in this B & B.

Like other reviewers, we stayed here while attending a wedding at the Shannon Oaks (is this the only thing that brings people to portumna??). The house was very well located, easy to find. the host and hostess were friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable, and there were nice touches - like shower gel in the shower in case you forgot your own. Which I did!! The soap wasn't the usual cheap stuff either - small details but I liked them. The breakfast was good too. All in all, a very pleasant b&b.

We stayed at the excellent Portumna House over the Easter holiday as an alternative to the Shannon Oaks Hotel where freinds were holding their wedding reception.
The location is great just 200 yards from the village centre and the hotel.
The service providsed by David and Una was first class and they had a lot of knowledge of the local area advising us of the best restaurants and the pick of the 14 bars in the village.
The rooms were large and comfortable with en-suite facilities.
The large breakfast was more than adequate and gave a great start to the day.
Throughly recommended.

We stayed two nights at Portumna House and found it to be wonderfully welcoming and nicely located. There's a car park right in front of this cheery, purpose-built B&B. Owners David Dalton and his wife Una are warm and friendly, and very knowledgeable of the area. David gave us great tips for walks in the Portumna Forest Park (very nearby). It's within easy walking distance of the many pubs in town (David can give you recommendations there, too!). We arrived after dark one evening, and David even carried our bags up the (three flights) of stairs!
Breakfast is simple and more than adequate, in a cheery, sunlit room overlooking the back garden. There's even a bird feeder or two in the yard, so you can do a bit of local birding with your breakfast.
Our room was immaculate, the bathroom big enough, with a spacious shower and plenty of hot water (and pressure). Tea/Coffee-making in the room make mornings a pleasure. There's a small TV/remote as well.
