Words cannot express how much we enjoyed our stay at Abbey View! It was a most incredible experience. I must say that the gem of this little B&B is Bernie herself. After a long day of touring on our way to Galway from Cork, my sister and I became lost (no thanks to the GPS we had rented), and so we gave Bernie a call. She was most friendly and very helpful in getting us back on course to the B&B. Because of our mishap, we didn't arrive until about 10:30pm, but Bernie was there ready to greet us and offer us a toasted sandwich along with some hot tea and coffee. Our room was very clean and boasted two twin beds with plush comforters and good mattresses, and the decor made me feel right at home. There was even a sink in the room, which I found convenient for preparing for bed in the evenings (even though the bathroom was straight across the hallway, and was very spacious and well kept also). Bernie took the time to speak with us and offer us many suggestions for our day travels from a local's point of view, and even drew out routes and circled destinations on a map for us to use. Our first day, she even gave us a few pieces of her homemade brown bread and some bananas to take with us to go with the meat and cheese we'd brought for our picnic lunch in Connemara Park. Her tips and suggestions were spot on and we loved exploring the areas she suggested. The Irish breakfast each morning was delicious and cooked to order, and I always left for the day stuffed from the large amount of food! I could go on and on...Bernie offers true Irish hospitality at her cozy, clean, and comfortable B&B. I highly recommend you pick this B&B for your stay in Galway, and I know I will be returning next time I'm in Ireland.
