Stayed for 3 nights in downstairs room. Room was clean and good size although slight smell of cigarettes. Great location for exploring the city. Jim and staff were very friendly and provide a good breakfast. Would stay again if we were visiting Galway.

I had a bad experience I checked in after 10 on a Sunday night. I was told breakfast will start at 08:30. I had an appointment at 08:15 the following morning.

I booked a room here for two nights for 2 adults - my Mother and I. I had to pre-pay the entire cost of the room before arrival which seemed odd but we were pressed for time to make other arrangements. We arrived and I believe we were the only people staying at this place. The host was odd and...
