On arrival we were met by Matt who couldn't do enough for us. The information provided by both Matt and Marie was more than adequate to our requirements. The prepared yoghurt fruit cocktail at breakfast was exceptional. Thank you Matt and Marie.

Excellent experience. Room was clean, breakfast was very good, great variety. Nicely situated to the heart of Galway. The best part was the warmth of the proprietors. They welcomed us in to their home as if we were members of their family.
