We stayed here for two nights in April 2012 while touring Ireland. The property is a little way out of Galway but its location on Galway Bay makes up for it. Our room had a lovely ambience - stylishly decorated with a water view and bathroom was well appointed with plenty of hot water. Our hosts were friendly and hospitable...

Clean and pleasnt rooms, but the b&b is generally lacking character. Disapointing breakfast, which costs extra - what is the second ,'b' for in b&b?! It's fine, but you wouldn't want to book more than a night or two.

Nice place but we had to walk up 3 flights of stairs and pay extra for breakfast. Parking was good. The staff was nice - we were given a very good recommendation for dinner which we would never have found on our own (Tom Sheridan's Bar). It was within walking distance. The breakfast was pretty good. We were also given...

It was pouring with rain and dark when we turned up. The hosts were very accommodating and friendly, and the rooms pleasant and clean. Great location and excellent value for money, however the walls were quite thin and could hear what was happening in the next rooms. Breakfast was great - although a little slow, and felt sorry for the...
