The room booked was nowhere near worth the price paid. Dirty cups.. Dust on bedside locker cobwebs from ceiling.. Bed not made to standards. Oh and a B and B not serving breakfast why is it advertised as such? Free wifi available in public areas but yet there was no such areas either. Staff were not readily available nor very...

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, we ended up needing to find a b&b in Galway asap. We found this little gem for only 70 euros. It has a lovely view, a safe neighborhood, friendly owners, and a nice room. The parking lot was small and tight, but with careful driving, you can definitely squeeze in. We arrived around 8pm or...

I do not normally write reviews but felt compelled to after my stay here. Arrived at 2:30 pm to be greeted with a post it on the front door saying come back at 4. After much haggling and repeated knocks at the door we were allowed to leave our bags at the bottom of the stairs. I asked to use...

The B&B is short walk from the centre of town and has parking outside. The rooms are very comfortable and the welcome we received was brilliant. The breakfast was very good and lady who owns the B&B was a great host. If in Galway and you want a family friendly B&B then I'd highly recommend this place.

We stayed in The Lighthouse for 3 nights. We were greeted by the landlady who was very welcoming and helpful. She told us about all the tourist attractions in the area and provided us with maps as it was our first time in Galway. We were then shown to our room which was bright, cheerful and clean. We had a...

The B&B was nice. The lady was really friendly. The room was cozy and warm. And it had parking. The only issues were that the room door didn't have a lock. The only key we got was of the front door. I was a bit uneasy sleeping. Knowing the door wasn't locked. Adding to that the curtains let all the...

When we arrived, the host asked us at least three times to pay for the room. We were surprised that the lady didn't give us any information about the city! The room wasn't that clean: we put towels on the floor because it was dirty and she just hanged our towels instead of changing. It was impossible to take a...

Lovely clean and comfy rooms in a nice quiet location. Only a few hundred yards from eyre square. Beautiful view overlooking the bay. Room was clean and both of us had long showers and had no problem with water. Tea and coffee, shampoo and shower gel all provided in room. only downside is theres no breakfast. Room only

Nice Clean Guest house but quite expensive for room only .Dont know why its advertised as a b&b it doesn't do breakfast.Generally in most b&bs you make your payment on your departure but we had to pay (Cash )on Arrival .I'm not saying dont stay there, but we certainly wont be back.
