I'm so glad we chose this b&b and I'm even more delighted that we got to meet Joan! She made our whole trip to Ireland a delightful experience! Everything about the inn and its food was perfect! Joan treats you like family!

Joann is an excellent host and made our family feel quite welcome! She goes out of her way to be accomodating and has wonderful advice on nearby sights for travelers-Galway, Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands and Cannemara. Her home is warm, welcoming and spotless. Teresa and Joann serve a wonderful "full Irish breakfast!" Joann recommended Donnelly's down the street-excellent food and friendly staff. All in all outstanding value! We hope to return!

After many years of having passsable but uninspiring accommodation in Galway for race week, we finally and very fortunately came across upon Joan and Freeport House 5 years ago. Our bookings are now taken a year in advance - and we cannot rate Joan, Freeport and in particular the lovely Teresa Joyce, highly enough for their warmth and hospitality on every visit. Freeport is a unique experience - with lots of fun and laughter thrown in for good measure - the facilities are beyond comfortable, spotlessly clean and with a marvellous breakfast. Dont hesitate to book yourself a room at Freeport - you will not be disappointed.

Joan welcomes you like a long lost friend and does everything in her power to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as she can.She even took our clothes into her kitchen and dried them after we got drenched while out walking. Teresa,who helps serve breakfast , is also very friendly and helpful. Freeport House is very close to good restaurants/pubs Galway City and the sea. The bedrooms are spotless with nice little touches and there is a lovely sittingroom to relax in, if you want to take it easy for a few hours.The house is situated in a nice quiet area with a car park to the rear. We have stayed with Joan many ,many times down through the years and hopefully, we will be back with her again next year.

Room Tip: Room 6 has a panoramic view of Galway Bay and The Burren
