We stayed last night at Almara House and it was perfect. The room was very clean and tidy, we had a delicious breakfast and the hosts were really nice to us (they even drove us to the rental car place!). I would really recommend anyone to spend their holidays at Almara!

Marie looked after us so well. We caught the bus into Galway. The bus stop was right outside. So easy. Marie clearly explained how much it cost and where to catch the bus back. Push the stop button just after the College. Very comfy. Beautiful breakfast.

Stayed here two nights. The owners were welcoming and quick to help you with activities around Galway. The breakfast was hearty and plenty of room in the dining area. Ease of access was also a great benefit to staying here. Right on the main drag, yet still a quiet stay.

We spent 2 nights in this B&B! The room was big, very comfortable and nice! The bed was good, the bathroom small but there was all the necessary. The owners are nice and kind! I really appreciated the home made breakfast: the first morning we had pankecakes with cream, maple syrup and fresh fruit, the second morning eggs, bacon and... More

Excellent breakfast - fresh, with fresh fruit salad. Friendly couple who appreciates star gazing. Very clean and spotless place - essential to my wife. The 3 bed bedroom was just adequate - with comfy pillows etc. Free drinking water too.

My husband and I spent three nights at the Almara House in September and we wished we could have stayed longer. Loved this city so much, but our stay at the Almara played a big part as well. Marie and Matt were such lovely hosts - so welcoming and always greeting you with big smiles. We arrived early on our... More

We had a comfortable bed in a clean, nicely decorated room and the owners, Matt and Mari, were kind enough to let us check in 30 minutes early. The room itself was small and while there was an armoire in the room for hanging clothes, there was no place to put our folded clothes. The bathroom was also small and... More

The choice of Almara House B&B for a stay in Galway turned out to be perfect. This B&B is located in the outskirts of Galway, easy to find and drive to. It is very convenient to downtown, there is a bus stop just right out front or a taxi into downtown is only 10 Euros. We had already booked a... More

This is the first review I've ever left on Trip Advisor. That's how much I loved these people. This couple was amazing! Such a great local experience, very comfortable, great breakfast!
