Visiting Ireland for the first time in late March we stumbled across Petra House. Great location, fabulous hosts and a hearty breakfast to start the day .....and keep us going all day! Quality produce expertly cooked and home made scones were terrific. Just arrived back in Sydney recently .......sorry for the delay in commenting.

Frank and Joan provided and enjoyable and convenient place for our 4 nights in Galway. Less than a 10 minute walk from the Bus terminal in a quiet neighborhood. Unlike many of of the other B&B's on the street, the hosts live on the premises, are a great help with advise on things to do in Galway. The breakfast was...

We spent two nights at Petra House and could not have been more pleased.Lovely home, great breakfasts (particularly the scones!), good location for a walk into central Galway. However, the best memories are of Frank and Joan, who were most kind and helpful with directions, eating and sightseeing advice, delightful conversation, and a wonderful history of our common family name....

I'm unable to find fault with this excellent guest house. It is conveniently situated, very well appointed, immaculately clean and run by lovely, helpful people. The breakfast menu is wide ranging, beautiful cooked and absolutely huge. Highly recommended.

This spotlessly clean and elegant inn is run by some of the friendliest people we met in Ireland. The breakfasts were wonderful and the personal touch by the innkeeper is exemplary. The very best place we stayed on our two week trip through Ireland!!!

Petra House was our first stop after flying all night and then driving from Dublin. Frank and Joan welcomed us in and showed us our room and after a brief rest Frank gave us some ideas as to where to go in Galway. The location is perfect, as it was a short and very nice walk into the city. Our...
