We had two rooms here in July on a family vacation. It's pretty, comfortable and clean. The location was a good base for exploring Galway and Connemara. They served the best breakfast. And they helped us get our luggage when it arrived a day late.

This was our least favorite B&B on our Ireland trip. The location is on a busy street, so there is a good bit of street noise, then we had guests arriving at 11:30 and again well after midnight that gave us a start. Then when the other guests fell asleep, we were bombarded with very loud snoring. So we did...

We just spent four nights at this lovely, comfortable and immaculate B & B. In addition Matt and Marie are the most warm, friendly and professional owners we have ever met. Service was exceptional. They both cannot do enough to make your stay enjoyable. The breakfast is outstanding and location very handy. We were in town from America for a...

Matt and Mary were unbelievably gracious hosts! We arrived with a load of soaking wet clothes and shoes as we were caught in a heavy downpour at the Cliffs of Moher. It was Sunday so no laundrettes were open. Matt immediately offered to take care of them and throw them in his dryer and make sure they were dry as...

We had a wonderful night there in early June. It was very clean and tidy and the owners were very obliging. The room was comfortable and breakfast next morning was superb - the best porridge I have tasted in a long time. Access to Galway was very easy and I will happily return.

To put it short: You simply will not find a place with higher attention to details and cleanliness, and you will have a hard time finding a friendlier pair of hosts. We enjoyed our two nights here very much. If there is one thorn in our bouquet of roses to this place it is the nearness to a main road....

Our room was still occupied when we showed up early, but we were allowed to park and leave our bags while we visited Galway. The B&B is easily reached from the town center by bus. After we returned we were made welcome, and plenty of tea & candy was offered as we relaxed in the comfortable room.

Marie welcomed us nicely and showed us to a well-appointed room with toiletries and a snack. It's clean and spacious. My complaint is that the walls are quite thin and you will hear everything not just in adjoining rooms but throughout the house. My wife and I tried to lay down for a nap after our arrival but could not...
