“Excellent”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Arrived quite late and soaking wet after cycling 13 miles from Galway in the rain. Michael kindly tumble dried our clothes and provided a much appreciated pot of tea.
The room was very clean, modern and quiet. Breakfast was delicious. Location beautiful.

Reviewed 9 December 2012 via mobile

We stayed for one night. Went to dinner in nearby Moycullen and got taxi home.

After a pleasant breakfast overlooking the lake the proprietor very kindly drove me to pick up my car that I had left in the village after dinner.

Only downside was that it took a bit of time for the hot water to reach the room.

Highly recommended for fishing trips. Lots of pictures of successful catches on the walls.

Reviewed 26 July 2012

The Lounge area was nice and there was a pleasant view, The Room that i stayed was average at best. The location was quite poor and has no bus or public transport. It cost 25euro each way to Galway city. On the Phone the owner seemed very nice and eager for our custom, But after a late check out (due to severe trouble acquiring transportation back after an evening in Galway city) turned quite nasty, when examining the credit card bill at a later date there was an extra 140euro charge, when contacting the Owner over the nature of charges he was extremely rude, aggressive and unprofessional, claiming that there were stains on the carpet when enquiring to see pictures or evidence, or receipt of cleaning he became very hostile and insulting. I remained pleasant with him at all times I would have been quite happy to pursue this in small claims court, but unfortunately due to recent bereavement i did not want the added stress involved in traveling back to Galway to court so decided to pay the charge as i do not wish to pursue in the courts. I have travelled a lot around Ireland, and Galway is my favourite county to visit. I have never had anything like this happen to me before. It was a horrible experience.

Michael C, Owner at Portarra Lodge B&B, responded to this review, 30 December 2015
It was originally a party of 8. Then reduced to 4 and finally 2 turned up. There was no charge for the cancellation as rooms were subsequently filled. The room was booked and paid for by the writer's girlfriend's mother. Those two got very drunk in Galway city and rang the Lodge on three occasions between 3 and 5 am looking for a Taxi. Following morning the failed to turn up for breakfast and eventually vacated the bedroom at 12 md. and left immediately, refusing tea/coffee. On examining their room the bed was soiled with vomit and beer stains and the floor also wet with same. I tried phoning them on their mobiles, but they refused to answer. The room was closed down for two days as a result. They were most rude when eventually they contacted the Lodge
