Me and a friend recently stayed at this b and b! It has a perfect location. so close to the centre of town. The room we stayed in was amazing. We were provided with a fridge and a personal safe which was excellent! although it was a little on the expensive side but that was to be expected for race week! if i was going back to galway i would def stay here. oh breakfast was amazing too and the lady that checked us in was really hepful giving us a map of galway city. They also obliged to store our bags after we had checked out so we could go shopping and didnt have to carry them with us! Def worth a stay!!!!

I stayed here in June 2012 for a two night weekend break. Galway was very busy that weekend so we ended up paying top dollar for this quite average B&B. On arrival we were shown to our room (Room 5) which turned out to be extremely small. The en-suite "bathroom" is barely the size of a wardrobe. In fairness the manager on duty for the weekend accommodated our request to change rooms the next day, so we got a much bigger room for our second night. The location is hand for town and or the university and the free car parking is an added bonus.

My husband and I and our teenage daughters recently stayed at the Desota House B&B. It was within walking distance to the city centre, restaurants, etc. The rooms were clean and although they aren't large, they are fine if you are just planning on sleeping and bathing. Breakfast was very good and the staff was very helpful in providing directions to places we wanted to see. One outstanding recommendation was to go to the local pub called Cookes Thatch Bar - the music was great! The only small complaint I had was that the hair dryer they provided wouldn't stay on without holding down the "on" button--just a small irritation. I'd also point out that they only provide body wash, no shampoo or lotion. The also don't provide wash cloths, which I guess is common.

We booked this b&b last minute and were unable to make our trip due to an injury. When we called to sort it all out they demanded the full price even though we were not staying and had booked the night previously. They were incredibly rude about it all. I'm pleased to say we couldn't go as when we spoke with the owner, Ray, he mentioned that they continually had relatives of the recently deceased staying with them due to the fact that they were 5 mins away from the hospital. I have no qualms with this but feel it should be mentioned in their advertisement. As a young couple going for a fun night out in Galway city this was incredibly off putting. We booked through booking.com and they tried to sort it all out for us. After speaking with them we were told the b&b's do not in fact pay a penny to advertise, yet Ray said that they would be charged regardless from booking.com.(a ploy to make us feel responsible!) Booking.com called us back within 30 minutes saying that the owner ray would be calling us to sort it out. No call, and two days later an e-mail saying we didn't attend and demanding the price yet again. Needless to say we will not be re-booking with this particular place again!

I stayed two nights at the Desota, and was very pleased. The owner and staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, and there was even a mini-fridge. This was a nice little extra for someone who was travelling for a couple of weeks and wanted to have something other than restaurant or junk food. I was travelling by bus and needed to take a taxi from the bus station, but without my suitcase it wasn't a long walk into the downtown area. I would recommend the Desota to friends and family who are travelling to Galway.
