I visited Periwinkle B&B with my mum and 2 daughters.The B&B's location is ideal, it's 2 mins walk to the seafront, 10 mins walk to Spanish Arch so you can walk to town without having to worry about where to park your car. Breakfast was yum, Joan served the best porridge I ever had and there was a large menu...

Everything about our stay in the Periwinkle was perfect. Its in a quiet area, is very clean, cosy, friendly and just a short 10 min walk to city centre. The lounge and dining room were beautifully furnished and had many of Joan’s fabulous paintings on walls around the house. Our room had all we needed in it, coffee, hairdryer, tv,...

We wished that we could have stayed longer than our two nights at the Periwinkle! It was a very clean, comfortable and convenient B&B. Joan provided us with a map and directions upon arrival and shared her favorite restaurants and pubs with us before we went out, it was just a short walking distance to the center of Galway. Breakfast...

After a long day driving from Dublin, we arrived at the periwinkle. We were greeted? by the owner, Joan, who gave us the room by the front door. My friend, who is a little overweight, was told "Oh I guess I know who will be getting the larger bed "which was rather uncalled for. We were then told to place...

This review is long overdue. My wife and I stayed at the Periwinkle in May, 2012 while attending the wedding of my wife's sister, after traveling from the US where we live. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel "at home". Joan made us feel as though we had "stopped in at mom's home". We even got...

My family and I had an incredible visit to Galway - primarily because of our stay at The Periwinkle B&B. Joan was unbelievably helpful - providing information varying from directions to the city center to tips on exploring the Cliffs of Moher to commentary on various events in neighboring areas, all of which was instrumental in informing our trip. Breakfast...

Joan and the Periwinkle BnB provided everything we could have wanted in this trip. It's just ten minutes from the city center and right near the water. Joan goes above and beyond to accomodate you and make you feel at home. Since she was injured and unable to cook -- she featured a guest chef Tom who made us some...
