The good: the owners were very nice and hospitable. The bad : the bathroom was tiny! This should have been noted on their web site........a very negative if we were staying more than one night.

We spent two nights at the Ardawn House in August, 2011. It is a lovely place to stay. Mike was so nice to drive our car in and out out of the parking lot since we are used to driving on the right. They have hot water and a variety of teas available in the parlor in the afternoons. We...

Most of the top rated Trip Advisor B&B’s are all located on the same street: College Road. Thankfully, we picked Ardawn House, because it was a perfect fit! This was a last minute trip; therefore, we didn’t have a lot of time to plan. Luckily, Mike and Breda were extremely helpful and knew what to recommend. They were also very...

After 24 hours of travel, we arrived ahead of schedule at Ardawn hoping to get a few hours of much-needed sleep. Breda was very accommodating and showed us promptly to our room overlooking the dog track. Breakfast the next morning in the lovely dining areas was our introduction to a full Irish and it was superb. During our stay, both...

Owners Mike and Breda were very accommodating when our foursome arrived a little earlier than they expected. We were mostly through our vacation throughout Ireland, having stayed in B&Bs each evening, and this jewel didn't disappoint. Ardawn House was nicely furnished with comfortable rooms, a convenient stroll from downtown Galway. Breakfast was typically super - a feature we had learned...

We immensely enjoyed our time at Ardawn House when we backpacked Ireland this past summer. The staff was very helpful in guiding us to local attractions and giving us pointers on where to go next. The property is a short walk to downtown, which was also very convenient.

We felt very welcomed at the Ardawn. The owners were friendly and helpful. Our room was neat and clean and quiet. This was our first experience with a full Irish breakfast and it did not disappoint. The options were plentiful and delicious! Downtown Galway was just a short walk away allowing us to easily tour the city on foot. Overall,...

My sister, brother and I stayed at Ardawn House last fall. Great location within walking distance of Galway's city center and Eyre Square. Off street parking, nice rooms, and a great Irish breakfast each morning. Mike and Breda were super hosts. Mike was a wonderful source of information about things to see and do in the Galway City area. He...
