We were greeted by our host who then gave us a lift into Galway, and a brief tour of city highlights. Helpful owners who guided us to good restaurants and our route to tour the countryside. Delicious breakfast....beautifully presented.

They have been in the B&B business for many years and are so lovely at encouraging chat in the breakfast room and sharing their experiences. It was great that the...

What a warm place to stay, for us one off the best we ever had in Ireland and the UK. Ethan & Brendan are very helpful and in for a chat. The Room is spacious and clean. Breakfast is also what we expected. There is an nearby bus stop to the centre of Galway.

We stayed in 3 B&Bs while in Ireland and this was our favorite. Warm and friendly Ethna gave us a choice between a room on the front or back. We chose the 2nd floor front because it had a large dressing room and bathroom area besides a double bed for me and a twin for my granddaughter. We did not...

We were greeted warmly upon arrival and when shown the room couldn't believe how large it was. There was a large bathroom with a bidet and soaps and shampoo were provided. We were offered tea after we settled in and Edna was nice enough to sit and give us advice on what to see and do in the area. We...
