Very nice. Marie was a wonderful host. Breakfast was excellent and Marie took the time during breakfast to make sure every one was set with plans for the day and help us make the most of our time in And around Galway.

Good, but Basic
This is a basic bed and breakfast, but lovely and clean with great breakfasts and real brewed coffee. The city center was a short taxi ride or bus ride with the bus stop right in front. The bathroom was very small, but the bed was comfortable. The innkeeper was very helpful and gave great advice about what sights we should see.
