A fine guesthouse, fairly central to Galway. On arrival we were made to feel really welcome by two very friendly members of staff. The rooms themselves were clean and spacious, and the beds were great. Would stay again! My only issue was the lack of outlets. Luckily we always bring extension leads with us, to plug our phones and things...

Fantastic b&b which had more of a boutique hotel feel including chocolates on the pillow and access to the expresso machine. Rates are more than fair with a range of breakfast options. Excellent value. Lots of facilities including a common room and computer hubs. Great parking too.

The cottage was well appointed, with a kitchenette and a full bath/shower. The rooms were comfortable, and the living room had plenty of space for four of...
