Stayed here with my wife whilst touring Ireland. Frank and Joan excellent guests, always ready with good advice and guidance if you need it. Room good size and comfortable. Breakfast will set you up for the day! Easy to walk into town.

This is a great B&B to stay at! John greeted us at the door when we arrived and help carry our luggage upstairs. The rooms very very clean and spacious. John gave us directions into the city (which is within walking distance) and recommended pubs we go to. All the pubs were great & we had a fantastic time! We...

He gave us some helpful information and pamphlets and chatted with us about what we planned to do over our next 3 days in Galway. Breakfasts...

This was our first stop on our Ireland trip. We spent 2 nights with Frank & Joan. They have a beautiful home and Frank went out of his way to give us directions and suggestions for town. Joan served the most perfect breakfast. The location is perfect, very close to downtown but not close enough to disturb us at night....

We stayed in few good B&B during our trip through Ireland, but Petra House went above and beyond anybody else. It was not just the clean room, delicious breakfasts Joan made or convinient location, but it was an experience unlike any other B&B. At Petra we felt more like staying with friends rather then at place run for business. Hosts...

This B&B was spotlessly clean, in a nice neighborhood within walking distance of Galway. Frank was a lovely host and Joan made delicious homemade scones. Breakfast was wonderful! Great place to stay.

Would definitely stay here again. Room was clean and comfortable and located only a few minutes walk from the downtown core. Frank and Joan were very friendly and offered great suggestions and tips for visiting the city. Will definitely be staying here again.
