This is such a clean and comfortable place. We loved our stay and the breakfast was delicious. Easy to walk to town which had lots of restaurants and pubs. Busy place when we were there and this may have been the last room. So glad we found it. The owner was very nice and helpful.

This place was fantastic. Not only was our host Teresa the sweetest woman ever, but she was so helpful and accommodating. She made sure to help book our day trips and also get us transportation to the airport. She gave us amazing suggestions and was all around wonderful. Her breakfast was delicious as well! The B &B is so close...

From the moment we stepped in the door until we handed back the key 3 days later, we were in love with Balcony House! The service was hands down the best we've ever experienced in a B&B. Our hostess was so welcoming and hospitable, she was the best part of our stay! Her warmth, attentiveness and desire to please just...

I just had a wonderful stay at Teresa's B and B. I have never stayed in a place as spotless as her's is! The bed was comfortable, bathroom very nice and breakfasts were deliciously prepared upon arrival with addition of buffet offerings. She is extremely nice and helpful.It is just a short walk into town. I would highly recommend.

You'll get a very warm welcome from the lady of the house who goes out of her ways to make sure you make the most of your visit, with a belly full of delicious homemade breads and all the info on what not to miss. Lovely home, comfy and spacious rooms, modern bathrooms. Only 10 min walk from Eyre square,...

B&B was in a great location and overall very nice. My only issue was that the web site said we were getting a triple and the room we got was barely a double! It was a very nice room but just too small.

Some friends, my wife, and I stayed at this B&B while in Galway and I have nothing but great things to say. First off, we arrived way before check in time and Teresa let us store our luggage there while we explored Galway. It was about a 11min walk from Eyre Square so the location was perfect and it helped...

Topping my list was the food. The breakfast is all homemade. The eggs and meat are locally grown. I ate so much for breakfast I didn't need to eat for the rest of the day. See the other reviews for room conditions and location, I have nothing more to add in that regard.

“Some rooms face the street and that could have a little more noise. We were on the second floor facing the back and it was quiet. Although they do have a dog and he might be a bother to non dog people if he barks (which he did occasionally). He never made noise during the night though.”
