We wished that we could have stayed longer than our two nights at the Periwinkle! It was a very clean, comfortable and convenient B&B. Joan provided us with a map and directions upon arrival and shared her favorite restaurants and pubs with us before we went out, it was just a short walking distance to the center of Galway. Breakfast...

After a long day driving from Dublin, we arrived at the periwinkle. We were greeted? by the owner, Joan, who gave us the room by the front door. My friend, who is a little overweight, was told "Oh I guess I know who will be getting the larger bed "which was rather uncalled for. We were then told to place...

This review is long overdue. My wife and I stayed at the Periwinkle in May, 2012 while attending the wedding of my wife's sister, after traveling from the US where we live. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel "at home". Joan made us feel as though we had "stopped in at mom's home". We even got...

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Periwinkle B & B. After a long day on the road we were greeted by Joan and it was like staying with family. The rooms were clean and comfortable....the breakfast delicious, and Joan is just a joy to be around. All our questions were answered and Joan went out of her...

My family and I had an incredible visit to Galway - primarily because of our stay at The Periwinkle B&B. Joan was unbelievably helpful - providing information varying from directions to the city center to tips on exploring the Cliffs of Moher to commentary on various events in neighboring areas, all of which was instrumental in informing our trip. Breakfast...

Joan and the Periwinkle BnB provided everything we could have wanted in this trip. It's just ten minutes from the city center and right near the water. Joan goes above and beyond to accomodate you and make you feel at home. Since she was injured and unable to cook -- she featured a guest chef Tom who made us some...

THis was a lovely B & B and a great location - a block from the ocean and a 10 minute walk into town so you could enjoy Galway without the city noise. Joan was lovely - very much enjoyed talking with her and her breakfast was terrific! For a family of four the room was small and there didn't...

Our room was gorgeous, the beds and linens supreme, and the breakfast was delicious! This B & B was located less than a ten minute walk, along the ocean, to the heart of Galway! My daughter and I could not have been more pleased with every aspect of this B & B! Joan was a tremendously gracious and accomodating host,...

It's a lovely B&B with nice rooms and a good breakfast. Joan, the owner is always eager to help her guests and make everything right for them. It lies near to the town centre and next to the sea-promenade in a quite area. We loved it and recommend it to all.
