“Galway Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

We stayed here for two nights. This was one of our favorite stays on our trip to the UK and Ireland. Our room and bathroom were spacious. City Center is a 10-15 min scenic walk away. (The walk passes an excellent bakery!) There's a laundrette nearby. Parking is right in front and the place is adjacent to a park.The breakfast was wonderful-many choices-THE BEST of our trip IMO. Coffee, tea, and snacks available in the living area 24 hrs/day.The owners are gracious and very helpful. The garden is lovely. We had not booked in advance but truly lucked out!

Room Tip: Ask for a garden view.

Enjoyed our stay here. Grainne was helpful in arranging tours and taxis. Breakfast was exceptional. The location was within walking distance from city center and most tour buses would come to the guest house or near by to collect us.

Room Tip: Some rooms are on the ground floor, others are upstairs, there is no lift.

We enjoyed our stay at the Adare. Very easy to walk everywhere, adjacent to a little playground and park. Pretty enclosed garden. Comfortable clean rooms. Breakfast was made to order, ample, healthy and delicious!

The only mar was the massive writing on the outside of the building. Perhaps there is some other more subtle way to announce its location.

Room Tip: rooms facing the road are a bit noisy until traffic dies down at night.

The location is great - short walk to Quay Street and easy to get on road to Rossaveal harbour if you are going to Aran Islands. Rooms were clean but could use some updating. Breakfasts were good (however I only had the pancakes and coffee) but selection and options were limited in comparison to the other 5 B & B/guesthouses we stayed at. Original price quoted to us was a little high for the standard of the rooms so be sure to price compare or ask for discount before committing.

Our two night stay was great. We had a big room with bath and shower. It might be a bit dated by some standards but it was clean quiet and comfortable. The short walk to the centre of Galway makes it the perfect location. There is parking at the front door. Wifi was a bit temperamental but ok in the public areas where complimentary tea and coffee and available all day. Thanks Grainne.

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.
