This is a cozy little B&B just 5 minutes by car from Galway Centre. A very kind and warm lady greets you and bakes a real Irish breakfast at the time you want. Every thing is new, clean. Internet works great. Perfect address!

stayed for two nights on the way to Ashford castle. A great base to explore Galway city and North Galway. Rooms were comfortable and modern, very peaceful location and close to a couple of nice pubs. Mary, the hostess, couldn't be more accommodating and is a friendly, fun lady.

Fantastic B+B, Mary is a fantastic hostess, the room was very comfortable and cosy, the breakfast is beautifully presented, and plenty of it, and a real good start to the day. Will definately use again when staying in the area.

Lovely B&B run by a lovely lady, breakfast was more then i could eat, very comfortable. My girlfriend had a bad cough when we were there and we were kindly supplied with a hot water bottle and an extra heater. mind you she still kept couching but that was no fault of the B&B :P
