“Charming place, fantastic location”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

The Adare Guesthouse was a short 10 minute walk from Quay Street in Galway and we were able to walk everywhere. Close to the water, the guys found a new route for their morning runs each day we were there. Breakfast was excellent. The rooms were spacious and clean with everything we might need. Our hosts were wonderful with advice around the area.

We stayed two nights at this guesthouse. The location is perfect for Galway; close enough to the city center, but far enough away from the hordes that it is quiet at night. The rooms are somewhat small, and the water pressure in the small shower in Room 3 was weak, but the breakfast was delicious and the hosts were helpful and welcoming. Good place to stay if your desire is to spend time walking the city.

The guesthouse is really clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast is delicious!!! The rooms are quiet but at the same time you're only 10 minutes walking from the main restaurants. The owner helped us arrange two tours which were also amazing. Lovely stay!

Adare House is a good choice if you want to be in walking distance to Galway center....the hostess is friendly and helpful. Room was good size, very clean, coffee maker, water, and HD TV....breakfast had traditional breakfast and fruit and 12 hot choices! Really good value and free parking!

My group -- moms and daughters -- recently stayed at the Adare Guesthouse and loved it. The location is perfect, as it's walking distance across a bridge from the activity of Galway. Grainne runs a tight shop, with clean rooms and cozy bedding, wonderful breakfasts, and a comfortable living area where guests commune. The added bonus to any guest is Patrick's (Irish spelling?) tour of his lush organic garden -- which produces vegetables for those tasty breakfasts. Another bonus is Grainne herself, who we found to be fun and a great source of information.

This B&B is a short walk from the pedestrian zone of Galway 'downtown', an excellent location for exploring. Breakfast was magnificent (made to order from menu), though didn't start until 8 am when we would have liked to leave earlier. Very quiet, we didn't hear anything. Owners grow own herbs with organic methods. Galway itself is bustling with walkers and has many good restaurants. No pool or fitness center, to be expected at B&B. Takes credit card (not all B&Bs do).

From our arrival to departure the B&b was one of the best we have stayed at. Pat, Grannie, and Mary were like family from the moment we arrived. Grannie's cooking was above the norm and held us till dinner. We do recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a great place close to town.
