Near Galway centre
Guesthouse was a short walk from the centre - room comfortable and clean - shower head a bit worn looking but everything else ok

Great B&B in an excellent location. GF Breakfast!
Went to Galway to watch the rugby (Connacht v Wasps). Location was absolutely superb - just two minute's walk from Connacht's ground and only a 5 minute walk from central Galway and all its great bars , restaurants and nightlife. The B&B was clean, the staff were very welcoming, helpful and hospitable and the breakfast was first rate. Great options, a freshly cooked - not greasy - breakfast, but also toast, cereal, fresh fruit, grapefruit and yoghurt. Also, as a coeliac, I have very specific dietary needs and although I had given no prior notice, they catered for me exceptionally well, so any fellow coeliacs can stay here with confidence and the knowledge of plenty of options and a hearty breakfast still available. Any gripes about the B&B are very minor and would not spoil anyone's stay. For example, the TV in the room was something of a museum piece, but it worked, and after all, is anyone planning a weekend in Galway to watch TV? So overall would not hesitate to recommend this B&B as an ideal base for a weekend visit and would certainly stay here again if I return to the city (which I certainly hope to do. What a fab city it is).

Great location, easy parking, friendly staff, quiet, comfortable beds, and a tasty breakfast. The best part? Wayne, the resident cat! (Small lion actually.)
