To be avoided!!!!!! The owner Evelyn tried to charge us €200 extra on arrival. When we said we weren't paying it she told us to leave. We gave her €500 deposit and she said we will get it back maybe a week after our stay.... She was the rudest person I ever came across! We demanded our deposit back and...

Our bad experience began when attempting to book, an unnecessarily long thread of e-mails had to be responded to as we had to pay by cash transfer as Evelyn would not accept credit card. After all this was sorted, as group we decided to try and make the most of it. Upon arrival, Evelyn was friendly, welcoming and gave us...

I have been renting a room in Ard Mhara Lodge for the past 2 months and so far it has been a very good, original and brilliant Irish experience. The owner, Evelyn, is a lovely and enthusiastic lady, always up for a laugh and a good chat. If you want to know about Galway, Oranmore and the Irish culture this...

My two friends and I stayed here for a few days on a trip around Ireland and we had a fantastic time. Evelyn was fantastic, and our room was cozy and just right for us. And the water pressure in the shower was amazing! Our (my) favorite part was breakfast, though. Absolutely delicious. It's a good thing we only stayed...

When I first arrived at the Ard Mhara Lodge and was greeted by Evelyn, I was amazed how enthusiastic and welcoming she was. She went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our weekend stay, and really made me feel like family. She made a full Irish breakfast for us one morning which was absolutely fantastic, and was...

I arrived at Ard Mhara Lodge on a Friday afternoon, I was greeted with a friendly face and immediately felt at home.

I stayed in this B&B for two nights with three other people and it was more than we could ever have hoped for. We booked online the day we would be checking in. We ended up paying 25 Euro per person per night, a total of 200 Euro. The owner, Evelyn, couldn't have been more accommodating. There was plenty of...

I wouldn't have given an accurate review for a one-night or two-night stay in that B&B, because I was deceived at first. But staying for 5 weeks made me realize the true face behind the mask, as I was treated in a horrible way. At one point, I was obliged to move from my room to another extremely terrible one...

Dear Ahmad, thank you for your review which has shocked and disappointed me. With over 20 years experience and hard earned reputation in the hospitality business I have never deceived or not made good on any promises. In fact, it goes against everything that I stand for and it hurts me to read your comments which I take serious issue...
