When me and my friend first arrived, Dolores, our host was very welcoming. She showed us our room and offered some good advice. The room had its own bathroom and both were clean and tidy. We had three choices for breakfast; Full Irish breakfast, vegetarian and continental. The tables were set every morning in the house's cozy kitchen and Dolores...

We spent two nights in this B&B through our two week road trip through Ireland in November. Dolores was one of the best hosts in Ireland. If u need advice, ask her! Never slept in a room like this: the toilet was a small seperated room and the shower was in the bedroom. A bit weird but okay ;) The...

Dolores is a great host, nothing was too much trouble. Location is excellent, only a short walk to central town and bars and restaurants. Room was spacious and clean, only thing we missed was tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Good off street secure car parking.

I had a booking for two nights (Friday and Saturday) - and was told there is a 48 hour cancellation policy during my booking. Alas, due to some unforeseen work commitments, I had to cancel the first night's stay - and called 48 hours in advance to do so. I was told that this B&B does not do one night...

We arrived by rental car on the red eye from the United States. Needless to say, we were exhausted. We checked in early, dropped our bags off, and came back a little while later. Dolores was a wonderful host... Very kind and charming. The beds were comfortable and warm. The room was mostly clean, and the breakfast was amazing. Dolores...

The Forge is lovely, and absolutely perfect for those who want to walk everywhere in Galway. We parked our car in the (free) lot and didn't move it for two days - awesome. Dolores was so friendly and her breakfast was tasty. The rooms are very simple and bathrooms are small, but if you care most about location this is...

“There was a skylight above my bed in our room. I am a sound sleeper so it was ok, but for some that might be bothersome.”

“The room on the ground floor is perhaps more convenient for those who feel reluctant to climb the stairs, has a more simple setting, less space and and en-suite bathroom. One room on the 1st floor (where I stayed) seems a little bit more spacious and the bathroom is outside.”
