The Ardawn House was the best B&B we stayed at during our vacation to Ireland. Mr. and Mrs. Guilfoyle were fantastic hosts, and kept their B&B very clean and hospitable. Mr. Guilfoyle even went out of his way to give us a ride to the train station, so that we would not miss our train as we were running late....

Galway was our first stop after arriving at Shannon airport for a 12-day vacation in Ireland in September 2011. Ardawn House was a great introduction to the people and the culture. Mike and Breda were wonderful hosts, gave us recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants. The breakfasts were delightful, filling, and as typical as we wanted. Breda gave us her recipe...

Spent one night there early May 2012. Host was accommodating and very friendly. House is nice: not the most beautiful but tastefully done. Room was plain and bed was comfortable. Bathroom was small but clean and useful. Water pressure was excellent. Breakfast was very good - the full Irish if you want it.

We arrived in Galway after 6 without reservations. Mike from the travel agency on Forster Street not only helped us find Ardawn but called for us and made reservations. We got excellent recommendations where to have dinner. Breakfast was awesome. Mike and Breda were tremendous hosts. Very friendly. Not only found us a golf course but called and got us...

Lovely B&B - even lovelier hosts. Mike and Breda were so welcoming and made us regret we only had 1 night's stay with them. Gave us TERRIFIC dinner recommendation - one of the best meals we had while in Ireland - Bar8. I could see being friends with these 2 - if only we lived in Ireland!

We were amazed to find a room right next to the Connaught ground. The greeting was friendly, the room was great, we couldn't ask for much more. We had time to spare so we went in to Galway for a dinner/snack and a pint before the game. We chose a burger shop, Supermacs, a common chain in Ireland but awful...

Ardawn House is a short walk from Galway centre and is a good location for exploring the local area. Mike and Brenda are great hosts, and the breakfasts were fantastic. The downsides (which may not bother some people) were that the rooms were a bit outdated, the bathrooms are small and though there was tea, coffee and biscuits available downstairs...

We stayed for three nights. The location is within easy walk of town center and train station. The breakfast was the best I have had so far. There is a menu selection and the usual buffet fare of cereals, fruit, and yogurts. The full Irish had delicious and fresh meats. The puddings were very good as well. The hosts were...

We stayed at Ardawn House for three nights and were very pleased with the location and our room. Walking into Galway City is all downhill, but coming back is a hike, but quite doable with a little rest half-way up the hill. Mike and Breda were gracious hosts, with Mike telling my husband where to see a Hooker - an...

After driving from Dublin on the morning we landed in Ireland, we arrived well ahead of check in time. Breda offered us a parking space and we set out to explore the city, only a short five minute walk. Returning to Ardawn about 5 pm, we checked into a clean, spacious, well furnished room, had some tea and cookies and...
