we stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was beautiful, comfortable and very very clean. Joan O'Dea - what can I say....an absolutely wonderful host, giving us tips and directions of where to go and places to see. The breakfasts every morning were to die for. We really felt so at home here and I just have to mention Joan's... More

I travelled with a friend to Galway and chose Periwinkle B&B. What a great find! We each reserved a single, en suite room. They were both spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. I actually had small view of the Atlantic from my room. It was very quiet and the open window allowed a beautiful breeze all night. We were given a... More

Great B&B on the edge of Galway - 1 min from the sea, 5 min walk from Salthill and 7min walk to Spanish Arch. Joan the host was very accommodating and friendly. Offered to drive me into town due to the rain, which was a very nice gesture. Rooms smallish but spotlessly clean with super comfy beds and have all... More

The room was; very clean, bed exceptionally comfortable, a very nice bathroom and shower. Breakfast was worthy of a five star hotel with a great selection and served to the highest standard, the smoked salmon scrambled eggs and pancakes reminded me of a cookery book and the host, Joan was very friendly and created a very relaxed atmosphere. As the... More

Nice B&B well located and charming. Nice clean room with a lot of attention to details (wine glasses, bottle opener, facial tissue, etc). Very good breakfast, well presented with good choices of food. Too small for a family or 3 person room. The 2 double beds facing each other take all the space (1 feet between the two beds; hard...

The place was nice, modern, clean, extremely comfortable and the landlady was very nice. But the thing that stood out the most was the breakfast. We were given a small menu to choose from the day before and there were so many good things offered, it was hard to decide. It almost made me want to stay longer, just so... More
