Stayed one night in this Rick Steves "Ireland" suggested little gem. The hostess was delightful and shared her story with us. The room was lovely, the bathroom was huge and the beds were soft. Breakfast was plentiful and varied. On sight parking was a plus. The ceiling in the breakfast room Is a work of art. Enjoyed this jewel

The owner is really a friendly persons and this is the best value of this b&b. Compliments for the service and hospitality. When we said her about our long trip in south of Ireland she gave us 2 fruit and a cake. The details make the difference!!

We only spent one night here. This is what I can say: +the owner was friendly +you park outside for free + it is the typical British/Irish B&B house without a lift. +quiet area and good quality sleep + comfortable bed and quite clean room with ensuite bathroom + continental breakfast included: different sponge cakes, cheese, tea, coffee, toasts and...

Everything about our recent 2-night stay was terrific. Teresa was very warm and welcoming -- from greeting us on our arrival, helping us with directions, and leaving treats in our room (including a care package because we had to leave before breakfast was served on our last day). Breakfast was very nice. There were three of us and our room...

I would not recommend Balcony House. The hosts are cold and inattentive, the breakfast was not good at all and the room is very austere and not comfortable. Basically we did not feel attended to at all compared to other wonderful B&Bs in Ireland. We wouldn't stay there again and don't recommend it to others.

Myself and 3 friends stayed at this B&B for 2 nights whilst attending a friends wedding in the city. Great location as it was only a short 10 minute walk into the beautiful city of Galway. Theresa, the owner, made us feel incredibly welcome and hospitable giving us tips on getting round the city and where to visit. Breakfast is...

We selected this B&B based on a mention in Rick Steves' Ireland guide book and couldn't have been more satisfied. We planned a 2-night stay in Galway and when we made our reservation, only one night was available for us (2 adults and a college-aged daughter). We checked in late after a drive from Dublin and were greeted by the...

The hospitality of Teresa and Michael alone is worth a stay. Their son Michael is a credit to their name, always on hand with a direction to point you in, or a heavy bag to carry. The hospitality is unmatched in Galway, they simply cannot do enough for you! Comfortable accommodation, and a breakfast unrivaled at any B and B...

I booked this B&B because of the excellent feedback on tripadvisor and booking.com. as well as location and price. Well deserved overall rating. Clean, friendly, helpful and quiet. Food was fabulous and very close to city centre. Thank you.

Highly recommended! Teresa was sweet and gave suggestions. I felt like I was visiting my fav aunt! Her son even moved our car when it got wedged in. Good location, very clean and great variety for breakfast.

“Some rooms face the street and that could have a little more noise. We were on the second floor facing the back and it was quiet. Although they do have a dog and he might be a bother to non dog people if he barks (which he did occasionally). He never made noise during the night though.”
