Dolores is such a wonderful host! She was so kind and helpful. Our room was gorgeous , big shower and comfy beds - perfect for a few nights. And I cannot forget.... a DELICIOUS Irish breakfast! The price was unbeatable and I would absolutely return.

We'd read all the great reviews of the Forge House and decided to book our 5 night stay in Galway there. From the first email contact, we knew this was a great decision. Dolores was so nice and responsive! Once we arrived and she opened the door, it really already felt like we were going to be staying with a...

We had three choices for breakfast; Full Irish breakfast, vegetarian and continental. The tables were set every morning in the house's cozy kitchen and Dolores...

We spent two nights in this B&B through our two week road trip through Ireland in November. Dolores was one of the best hosts in Ireland. If u need advice, ask her! Never slept in a room like this: the toilet was a small seperated room and the shower was in the bedroom. A bit weird but okay ;) The...

Dolores is a great host, nothing was too much trouble. Location is excellent, only a short walk to central town and bars and restaurants. Room was spacious and clean, only thing we missed was tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Good off street secure car parking.

“There was a skylight above my bed in our room. I am a sound sleeper so it was ok, but for some that might be bothersome.”

“The room on the ground floor is perhaps more convenient for those who feel reluctant to climb the stairs, has a more simple setting, less space and and en-suite bathroom. One room on the 1st floor (where I stayed) seems a little bit more spacious and the bathroom is outside.”
