“Fantastic Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

We stayed here in May 2012. This was our second favorite lodging out of the 7 places we stayed on our trip. We received a warm greeting upon arrival and were shown to our room. The hostess was very friendly and hospitable. As a guesthouse it falls somewhere in between a hotel and B&B. We were on the 3rd floor and had to carry luggage up stairs. This was no problem for us, but if you have any trouble getting around you may want to request something on the ground floor. The location was so convenient - a quick walk to everything the city has to offer. We lucked out and caught it on the first sunny weekend in weeks and everyone was flocking to Galway. Be prepared because traffic was terrible. We were so glad that we didn't have to drive to anything because of our location. Food was absolutely phenominal - some of the best breakfasts we had in Ireland. The city was wonderful - it's a vibrant, eclectic crowd (seemed like the exact opposite of Dublin) with good shopping, food, and entertainment.

Great place. Comfortable and quiet.
Fantastic breakfast with choices and espresso all day if you choose.
Walking distance to town and ocean. Local taverns, restaurants, river and food area all near by.
Beautiful area.

B&B is difficult to find - GPS couldn't properly locate, we ended up parking and walking/asking directions - however well worth the effort. This is a great B&B for a disabled traveler - we had two in wheelchairs and easily navigated the B&B and had access to town. Staff was friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: make sure to discuss specific bathroom requirements - many rooms have tubs which is unusual

Perfect location in Galway. Hosts couldn't be friendlier. Value for Money is excellent. Home cooked breakfast was excellent with a host of tasty options. Lovely clean and spacious ensuite room. Only place to stay when visiting Galway.

Perfectly located close to all the Galway action - although this meant it was noisy on a Friday night. Breakfast was terrific - freshly cooked to order & extensive. The family was very friendly and helpful with suggestions. Nice touch of complimentary btled water and chocolate on arrival for each guest. But it is quite big and busy and a little run down, so the actual accommodation is "basic". I found the bed and pillows uncomfortable & water pressure low. Price was quite reasonable, so I wouldn't complain too much. U get what u pay for!!

I booked our rooms at the adare guesthouse because of the reviews on trip advisor. I am glad I did. The rooms were neat and clean, the breakfasts were made to order and the staff was very accommodating. We were within walking distance to the city center and the docks. Galway is a very busy place for many of the late night hours. The adare is close enough for convenience but far enough away to have a quiet nights sleep. My teenagers only complaint was that there was not enough hot water for their showers.
