We were in Ireland for 9 days and this B&B was my favorite. We had to leave early to catch a ferry and Joan woke up early to make us a full breakfast. Not neccesary but certainly appreciated! Great place to stay!

Arrived early and room was available. Helpful with directions of tourist locative and bookings/ suggestions. Breakfast was absolutely first rate- I recommend the smoked salmon with poached eggs and great scones!

You should definitely stay here if you get the chance! The hosts (Frank and Joan) are the warmest, most hospitable people. The property is so lovely, spotlessly clean and the breakfast was the best we had in Ireland (stayed at 9 B&Bs). Our room was a good size, very comfortable beds, and had extra little nice touches. I wish we...

The dining and parlor areas are perfectly arranged and the food is to die for. At this point in our trip I was ordering porridge because id had so...

The owners were super friendly and the b and b was spotless. Breakfast was lovely. It was the small touches that made this special. Bottled water in the rooms, wifi available and books on the shelf to swap and read. Will go back there next time we go to Galway.

We stopped in Galway for one evening and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Petra House. Frank was born to be a host - he makes you feel truly welcome and happy to be there. The breakfast was great - from the taste of the food (oatmeal with Bailey's is delicious as it turns out!) to the artful touch of my...

When in Galway, this is THE B&B to select! Frank and Joan will dazzle you with their elegantly maintained home and warm Irish hospitality. The breakfasts here are DIVINE and truly the best we had in our two weeks of travel in Ireland. The minute you enter this house, you will be impressed with the elegance, cleanliness, and charm.
