We stayed at this guesthouse the weekend of the volvo ocean race. The location is perfect for a trip to Galway. It's just 2 minutes drive to Galway City. The rooms are beautiful and the beds are very comfortable. We'll definitely be staying here again on our next trip to Galway. Thanks for everything Mary :-)

We spent only one night at carraig b&b. It was quite good! The room was comfortable and mary really cute. I did't like the tent in the shower! The breakfast was good. The location is excellent if you want to relax, because the b&b is in the countryside!
