We arrived late after a visit to Cliffs of Moher and Jean had arranged for someone to get us and show us to our room. The room was perfect with a great ensuite. The fabulous full Irish breakfast could not be faulted. This is a class BnB we fully recommend. Bill & Sue

My family and I recently enjoyed a two-night stay at the Freeport House. What great people, and what a great location. Upon arrival Joan made us feel right at home. Galway was crowded and congested so Joan called us a cab so we could enjoy a hassle-free ride into the city centre. Joan made sure our needs were well taken...

Joan owner so welcoming made us feel so comfortable. Room and bathroom very clean and comfortable. Fab view from our bedroom window, would highly rate this B&B. Location off main road, not a lot to do in the area, has a lovely beach 5 min walk and some nice restaurants like donnellys and o gradys seafood restaurants.

Got to Galway and for the 1st time during the trip was not able to find a hotel when we arrived (oyster festival in town). Tourism office directed us down the coast and as we entered the town of Barna just a short drive away we found this gem. Joan, the owner was very nice and hospitable and the rooms...

We stayed in the triple room which for three people was a little too compact for our liking, however it was good value for money. Joan was a very helpful and accommodating hostess and breakfast was ample and very nice.
