Brida and Mike were amazing hosts! Our rooms were ready early which was a huge help considering we were all exhausted by the time we reached Galway. Our rooms were spotless as were the common areas. Brida and Mike were so helpful pointing us in the right directions for dinner (An Pulchan Pub). They were so good to the kids...

Ardawn House is fabulous! Mike and Breda were tremendous hosts and the accommodations were top notch! The room was spotless, beds comfy, all the necessities were covered, including tea and coffee. The breakfast was also the best we had in Ireland! I would definitely recommend staying at Ardawn the next time you're traveling thru Galway!

The sweetest family runs this B&B. The rooms are nice, breakfast was so good, and their recommendations were spot on!!! They hooked us up last minute with a day tour of Inis Mor. And the pubs and restaurants they suggested were fabulous. I'd stay here again and definitely recommend it.

We spent a night in mike and breda´s place and it was amazing! First, everything was clean and tidy, the location is great if you want to be close to the center but also in a quit road. The highlight is the perfect breakfast which includes full irish breakfast or smoked salmon with eggs in addition to a lovely buffe....

Really enjoyed my stay at this lovely B & B. Mike and Breda were very warm and welcoming and really know how to make their guests feel at home. The room was spacious and spotless and the breakfast was excellent. It is in a great location and is an excellent choice for Galway city. Hope to return again soon.

Friendly generous hosts. A spotless room and amazing food. Mike and Breida go above and beyond in every situation. I stayed 5 nights at Ardawn. The only difficulty was proximity to the greyhound track. As an animal lover, it was difficult to see that from my window. Otherwise a great neighborhood proximate to shopping and dining.

Perfect!! We were in Galway for 3 nights and this was the perfect B&B! The owners were extremely nice and welcoming! Easy walk into town. There is a small parking lot, which is nice if you have a rental car. We highly recommend staying here.
