This was our first B&B in Ireland and it was perfect. As you can see from the location it's a bit out of Galway but the bus stops right out front for easy pick up. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, and Marie was a wonderful help! She was able to call and book the Connemara tour for...

We had to wait outside the property to check in, till the owner arrived (very limited check-in times). We were made welcome and appreciate the limitations of a b&b, but there were some draw-backs. There was a shortage of usable sockets; the sink in the bathroom was way too small- to clean your teeth, it was necessary to crouch at...

We only stopped here for one night but would have stayed for longer had we known how comfortable the beds were. It's normally not a big thing, but having comfortable beds when you are travelling around for a while can turn any place into a great place. Almara House is a great place anyway. Short trip into town and very...

The Almara House was the cleanest, most charming B and B that we stayed at during our 18 day in Ireland. The room was wonderful with brand new carpet and tasteful decor. Breakfast was options were exceptional and very tasty. Thanks Marie and Matt.

The lovely B&B house is operated by a very nice and lovely couple. The service was awesome, they fulfilled all of our needs. We got maps and plenty of good advices. The breakfast was copious and delicious. The house is well equipped, you can pay with credit card. Parking places are available just in front of the main door.

This was our first B&B experience in Ireland. Spotlessly clean, good breakfast, comfortable beds. Marie and Matt were kind and friendly hosts, and gave us good tips for further travel. We liked the tea station on the second floor!

We only had one night at Almara, as we were passing through, but the room was very lovely and so comfortable. I want to find some of those cute water decanters and glasses for home! Matt was so kind and helpful. Breakfast was yummy and the tea station came in handy, as we had pretty wet weather. The location provided...

Spent 1 night in Galway, room clean and pretty; bathroom very very little with shower (sink so little that is almost not usable). Owners very kind. Breakfast good but not so good as some b&b found in the north.

This was our first experience for a bed and breakfast. The hosts did a wonderful job and provided very great service to us. They had a menu to choose your breakfast off of. Breakfast was delicious! We asked for good places to eat some dinner at and they named some wonderful places to try! Would definitely recommend this B&B.
