We stayed at Sli Na Mara this past week-end (Mar 2014) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sli Na Mara. The Thompson's were extremely hospitable and welcoming. The establishment was very clean and perfectly located for walking to all of Galway's City Center destinations which was perfect as we didn't have an auto.

Room Tip: all appeared to be about the same size

I stayed at Sli Na Mara for one week and it was great. The Family is so kind and the service is at the top. Room is clean, as the whole house. The breakfast is very good. The location is excellent (10 minutes from city center - 20 minutes from coach station & 5 minutes from the sea).
I recommend it and I plan to be back.

I have been twice and I would definitively repeat. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. I strongly recommend the full irish breakfast. It was so delicious. Hosts are very kind and helpful. The location is very good, a quiet residential area at less than 15min from the city centre.

A friend and I stayed here for a couple of nights while we drove around the just about the whole country and could not have been more pleased. It was a very convenient walk into the city and our host directed me to a couple of the better pubs that were exactly what I was looking for. Would definitely stay there again if I'm lucky enough to go back to Ireland.

Great hosts, very friendly and helpful (including tyre changing in the rain for America citizens struggling with right hand drives). Rooms cosy and clean. Solid Irish breakfast and only a short walk from town

Dear Altorro,

Many thanks for your great review! We're delighted you enjoyed your stay with us here in Galway. The Tyre changing service surprisingly didn't take off, perhaps a we will offer a full NCT service come next season!

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and we hope to see you soon.

Stayed here for a couple nights for the Galway portion of our honeymoon, would definitely come back. Bridie was a wonderful hostess and makes a delicious Irish breakfast. You can walk to the ocean or to the center of Galway(find the doughnut guy). The rooms are beautiful, pristine, and after staying in the heart of Dublin the night before, noticeably quiet. Considering the races were happening the weekend we were there, the price was very good.
