Absolutely fantastic breakfast, service and cat!
Absolutely great B&B. We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed during the whole stay. Really, really good and abundant breakfast with lots of options, friendly and flexible service, clean and spacious facilities and quiet location right next to city centre. Oh, and our shower was good with nice water pressure. It took maybe 6 - 8 minutes to walk from the main train station to this B&B. And it was approximately 9 minutes walk from this B&B to Eyre square, so location was really close to everything. There was also a lovely cat in the house who we completely fell in love with! We really liked this place and would be ready to stay with them again if we end up travelling to Galway again. A warm recommendation from us.

From arrival to departure we were treated like royalty. We received a full Irish breakfast in the morning without having it included within our booking. The breakfast was delicious. Our host allowed us to park all day to allow us explore the city. The B&B is in an excellent location only a 5 min walk to all the central spots. Definitely will stay here on my return to Galway.

Was our last minute booking but absolutely happy choice . Kids were very happy because they find new friend ( cat). Staff was very friendly and helpful!! Owner should definitely invest some money to update the rooms. Few minutes to train station, city centre and practically everything.
