My wife and I recently spend two nights at the Abbey Lodge. I would say it is a pretty good value B&B. It is a solid 15-20 minute walk into town based on where it is located north of the city center. It is a safe walk with good sidewalks for your journey. Our room (#1) was nice and clean. Bathroom was clean and shower worked fine with plenty of hot water. Wi-fi worked very well too. Breakfast was pretty much full Irish with cereal and toast. There were a couple other egg type option as well. One slight negative is that the 1st floor room is located by the main entrance and can be noisy with people coming in at night and with patrons leaving early in the morning. This wasn't the best B&B we've stayed at in the ten plus nights we've been in Ireland but there is nothing wrong it. Overall it is a good value for the price as long as you don't mind a little walk into town. As far as sightseeing in Galway goes it can pretty much be done in a couple hours. Most people use it as a base town for the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher. There are some decent pubs with Irish music as well as some good options for budget meals unlike many other Irish towns we've visited.
