“Outstanding B and B , perfect distance from town”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

My son and I stayed in the B&B of Mary and Charlie Fitzpatrick, a couple of weeks ago. Their place was immaculate, charming , and a perfect distance from town. We were a 5 minute walk from the activity, but our street was relatively quiet, with room for parking. Mary served a simple but delicious breakfast each morning, and provided some information about Galway city and surrounding areas. We were greeted each morning with a cheerful good morning. What a nice home away from home. The room was simple, clean, and more than adequate! I would stay here again for sure.

Galway was the last stop on our 5 city Irish voyage and it was a great way to end our visit. Located about a 10 minute walk from the city center, Prague House was convenient and affordable (PS: CASH ONLY). Rooms were cozy and the en suite was recently updated. Room came with wireless (password already written out in the room which I found extremely convenient since I had to ask for it at ever other place) and breakfast was delicious in the morning. Parking was a HUGE plus.
Mary (owner and caretaker) was extremely pleasant and came equipped with a map of the city and plenty of suggestions.
Convenient to Pharmacy, Grocery Store and Pubs/Cafe's and Museums.
This cozy B&B fit the bill for what my wife and I needed.

One of the best places to stay in Galway. Mary and Charlie are the best. Rooms are very clean and warm. Breakfast is one of the best I have had in Ireland! The pudding was delicious! It felt like I was staying with family. I will be staying here any time I am in Galway!

After several stays in Galway I finally found the no.1 B&B for me. Mary gives you the feeling that whatever might happen - she's aware already and knows how to handle the situation. During our breakfast at nine a.m. we asked her if we had a chance to reach a plane to the Aran isles. Including a 45 mins drive we sat in the little plane at 10 a.m. with our tickets in hand, which she had aranged already. All I can do is to recommend Prague House to anyone coming to Galway City, which is within two mins' walking distance. Thank you Mary.

The B&B is in a quiet area, with an easy 10 minute walk into the main shopping and restaurant pedestrian area. Mary gave us excellent advice on the area, and her breakfast choices were lovely. (French toast, yum.)
On our final morning, there was a huge storm outside. Mary offered her sturdy umbrella so that we could go to the ATM. We got soaked and her umbrella paid the ultimate price. She also talked us into staying for another pot of tea while we waited for a break in the storm. We did and got to know a nice couple from Vancouver who were traveling after their recent retirement. What a pleasant way to spend a stormy morning.

Fanatstic place to stay if you are In Galway City. Short walk in to town or to the rrsturants and bars of Salthills seafront. Mary is a great host, warm friendly and knowledgable. Breakfast is a triumph. Not to be missed.

Room Tip: Rooms at back of property away from road may be best in summer.
