We found Tuar Beag on the Irish B&B website and read many reviews on that site as well as on Trip Advisor. Eamonn and Siobhan have been in the B&B business for many years and their home is a lovely old house with beautiful, great big thick stone walls. Although WiFi is available, those same walls interfere and reception is spotty. The downstairs is as warm and inviting as depicted in the Internet pictures. It was nice to have access to a guest lounge since our room was a bit small -probably because it had two beds: the queen sized one we had asked for, and a single one. It faced the front of the house and had a nice view of Galway Bay. We found it warm at night and could not turn off the heat, nor open the windows. The bathroom was fine, with a smallish shower. The dining room is particularly warm and inviting, and beautifully set. Breakfast is good and served by Seobhan herself. Guests are asked to select the night before from a pre-set menu which offers a good selection of dishes. Each dish is very well presented, but we found the portions small. For example, on both mornings I selected fruit and yogurt and although it looked very nice in a long, slender dish, there were only a few pieces of fruit, topped with a very few spoonfuls of yogurt. On the second morning, we only had one cup of coffee each and none was available when we asked for a refill. We had never encountered this before in any of the B&Bs we stayed before, whether in Ireland, England, France or anywhere else in Europe for that matter.
We must add though that when we discovered we had left an adaptor in our room two days after we left, we contacted Siobhan and asked if it could be sent to the hotel in Dublin where we were going to be a few days later. Eamonn put it in the mail that day and it was indeed waiting for us when we arrived in Dublin.
