Our stay at Marian Lodge Guesthouse was very pleasant! We were greeted with warmth and were offered tea and biscuits immediately. Our room was comfortable and quiet, and it was nice to have home-cooked Irish Breakfast in the morning. We stayed in room 5, which is considered a triple room, which was big, had a private bathroom, and comfortably fit...

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights. There was a marathon on in Galway and the B&B seemed to be heavily booked the second night. Our hostess, I'm sorry I don't know her name as she didn't introduce herself, seemed to be on her own and had a lot to do. Our welcome was to take us to our...

Breakfast was amazing!! Fresh juice and baked bread. Our lovely host could not have done more for us, she suggested lots of local attractions and great tours. It is in a very quiet neighborhood. I would gladly stay again..

I stayed in Marian lodge to attend a gig in Galway with friends and we had an amazing time! Celine and her family were so welcoming to us all and the rooms were so spacious and spotlessly clean! The wonderful breakfast with homemade brown bread was just what we needed after our night out and Celine couldn't do enough for...

We had a good experience. The house is held by an elderly couple which will do everything to make you feel comfortable and at ease. The house is not very central but in a very good position, near the seaside. I'd recommend it if you, like, me need calm situations and a domestic feeling for all of your familiy

We arrived to a very friendly welcome from our lovely host Celine who made us very welcome. There were four adults in a family room and we were very comfortable. The beds were very comfortable and our shower was fantastic. We had a fabulous breakfast every morning. Nothing was a bother to Celine who was a great help. We would...

Indeed a bit old fashioned. The owner is friendly though but tries a bit to hard. Compared to other B&Bs this one scores average: you can hear the other guests, the room is rather small, breakfast is not very special. We found pieces of glass on the floor in our small bathroom.

Nobody their when we arrived at 3.00 so had to go for a walk (after a long drive). We were put in the loft, nothing matched, musty smell, The next day someone had been in the room which was unnecessary as we only stayed one more night. Would not recommend this guest-house and do not understand the reviews..
