Expensive room for the size, Small and dirty bathroom compleate with unflushed soiled toilet. Small breakfast with very limited choices. Poor value for money. For the cost of this room i would have expected more. Next time i will pay the extra to stay at a hotel.

This is as basic a B&B as you can find. The room was very tired, bathroom tiny. They spent money on the outside, but inside its in need of a makeover. The place has no personality, and the owners have delegated their hosting responsibilities to two foreign students who can't cook or interact. This is not an Irish B&B experience....

First the location is great, in Salthill overlooking the bay - if you get a front room the views are great. It is a ten minute walk into Galway where there are a host of restaurants and bars. Also, its ten minutes in the other direction to Salthill where there are also lots of good bars and restaurants. The rooms...

Clean and well organized, this b&b gave us all we needed to enjoy the city: a nice bedroom with cleaned linen, good tea to brew when needed, a working and cleaned bathroom. Even the location, Salthill, was very good!

I dislike giving bad reviews but as a service to others, I feel obliged to inform people about this place. I asked for ground floor & I got an attic hovel. The carpet was freed & there was no bin in the room. The floors were slippery & dangerous. The shower was situated in a closet & you had to...

The White House is in a great location, close to Galway city and right on the Salthill Prom so you can take lovely walks or head into Salthill itself. Staff are warm and welcoming. The premises itself are in need of renovation. Hallway is clean and nice but the rooms could do with an upgrade - fairly grubby if I'm...

Clean rooms but very outdated. Curtains didn't close properly. Towels were well past their "sell by date" . Ensuite was very poor.....A "wet room" with a shower curtain which meant that the whole bathrooms floor was soaked immediately that the shower was turned on.....very dangerous when you are travelling with 2 kids. The shower head was broken and sprayed water...

My husband and I stayed here for one night with our little bub. Great location in salt hill, walking distance to Galway city centre. Views are breathtaking from the bedroom window. The rooms are a little outdated but clean and cosy for the price. We had the full Irish breakfast for 7.50 euro which was perfect could not fault it...
