Westwinds Guesthouse
Ranked #47 of 189 Galway B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 September 2013

The location of this B & B is great, the house is pretty, the rooms are nice, but they charged more than to what they offered, breakfast was small, no fruit offered, 5 euro extra for a complete irish breakfast which called our attention since in other B&Bs were part of the room rate...during our stay the orange juice was out of date....we were travelling with a baby and the bath was not available for us in order to give him a bath, they said that they couldn't find the right stopper but I think they wanted to save water or electricity or they just didn't care...
If I were to come back to Galway, I'd look for another place were to stay...

My family of 5 adults stayed 2 nights at the Westwinds in Salthill. when we made the reservations we had no idea that it was race week in Galway. The city was packed. We were close enough to walk into Galway and enjoy the festivities and far enough away to enjoy quiet evenings. Salthill offers fun Pubs and very good restaurants. the family that owns the B&B were very warm and friendly, Thanks for a wonderful visit.

We enjoyed our stay in Galway during our 10 day visit to Ireland. We didn't have a map of the area and were feeling a little stressed when we couldn't find the property especially on a very busy Sunday evening on a lovely summer's day. We met Shauna the following day and she provided some helpful information about the area and it's attractions. Our original intention was a 2 night stay but as "Trad on the Prom" was recommended we extended our stay another night and weren't disappointed with this decision. On this day we were late arriving back from our bus trip so so Shauna kindly offered to drive us to the hotel for the dinner and show. The rooms were of average standard and we spent 2 nights of our stay in a front bedroom which did get some road noise. The one thing that disappointed us was that there was no fruit offered with the breakfast, the only bed & breakfast during our travels in UK & Ireland not to offer any fruit or yoghurt. Although not in the centre of town the locality was fine and only a 10 minute walk to the main shopping area. On our day trip to Cliffs of Moher the bus picked us up and dropped us from outside the B&B.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear are quieter

The best bed and breakfast so far after my 1 week stay in ireland. We got a 3 beds room. It is very spaciuos, clean, and tidy. Very friendly host! The only downfall is, it is not in centre of town. Pricing wise, a bit on the up side.
