This B&B is a great value in Galway and one of the few that seems to have joined the 21st century in terms of being bookable online. The rooms are comfy, the towels are soft and fluffy, and the breakfasts are delicious and provide plenty of variety for multiple days (we stayed for three nights). It's about a 40-45 minute... More

Upon arriving, we were met by Mike, who had allocated us a ground floor room, which was ideal due to our travelling with our baby. The bed was very comfortable, and was large enough for us to have the baby with us, which was fortunate, because the room itself didn't have space to set up a travel cot. The room... More

My family of four enjoyed one nights stay. Rooms and en suites were small but really all we needed. Lovely home cooked breakfast with a great selection, which we had in the conservatory. Perfectly clean rooms and bathrooms. Very comfy beds. We haven't stayed in many B&Bs before, but due to the races being in town, all other hotels were... More

I didn't have a car so it was too far from town for me. The bus was easy to get right across the street. Breakfast was okay but not near as nice as I had at many other B and B's on my visit. The bed was comfortable. I did not have a bathroom in my room and the one... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and it was perfect for what we wanted. We had the double room downstairs - the bed was very comfortable, the shower was good and it was quiet. The owner was very friendly and cooked a great breakfast each morning. There were plenty of things to choose for breakfast. We really... More

If you get the loft room up the stairs, you would be well advised to leave your luggage on the main floor or in your rental car if you have one, as the stairs are very steep and winding and there is very little room in the loft room. That said, the breakfast was great and the owner very friendly.

Really lovely place, very friendly owner, warm comfy beds, nice breakfast. A little bit of a squeeze in the attic room for 4 people but nevertheless a nice room. Parking can be tricky if you get home late and wifi was a little patchy, but all up a lovely stay - wish we'd had longer there.

Very good BnB. The location was very convenient. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great with many different choices available. I would definitely recommend The Branches and would stay the again.

Very clean, quiet and pleasant B&B. 10 min bus ride to the city centre, however, bus stop at the end of the street 1 min walk. Great breakfast. Nice, accommodating and professional owner. The only bad point is that the bathroom was extremely small.
