We stayed in few good B&B during our trip through Ireland, but Petra House went above and beyond anybody else. It was not just the clean room, delicious breakfasts Joan made or convinient location, but it was an experience unlike any other B&B.

At Petra we felt more like staying with friends rather then at place run for business. Hosts had personal approach for every guest; for example, Frank noticed that our son picked out raisins from one of Joan's homemade scones and next morning brought him a special batch of plain scones.

After staying at Petra House, finding a comparable B&B will be a difficult challenge.

This B&B was spotlessly clean, in a nice neighborhood within walking distance of Galway. Frank was a lovely host and Joan made delicious homemade scones. Breakfast was wonderful! Great place to stay.

Would definitely stay here again. Room was clean and comfortable and located only a few minutes walk from the downtown core. Frank and Joan were very friendly and offered great suggestions and tips for visiting the city. Will definitely be staying here again.

Frank and Joan are just wonderful hosts.....cannot say enough nice things about them.

Unfortunately they were booked our first night in Galway....
(I booked weeks before the trip - hint BOOK EARLY TO STAY AT PETRA)........and we stayed next door at another place our first night in Galway.

Needless to say - there is a reason Petra House is so popular.....Great Hosts, Walking distance to town, Clean, Great Breakfast.

Although our room was tiny....and the shower was tiny....My husband is 6'3" - we managed...beds in Ireland (true at all the B&B'S we stayed at) are much more firm than you might be used to.....After a day and night of fun in Galway.....it doesn't matter.

We would stay there again in a heartbeat. We wish all the best to Frank and Joan.....

Room Tip: Book Early!!!!!

You'd have to travel far to find a better B&B. Hosts Frank & Joan could not be more welcoming. Frank even gave us a lift downtown in the evening in Joan's new BMW 5 series!

Rooms are spotless (bathrooms on the small side) and the breakfast wonderful. Very good value (you get what you pay for). Frank has good tips on dining and trad music pubs (the one opposote the Park Hotel was great).
