“Ardawn House Galway”
Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

Last June we stayed at Ardawn House for 3 nights during our trip to Ireland. Breida & Mike are excellent inn keepers, helpful and efficient. They provided us with many recommendations on things to do in the Galway area, all of which added to our trips enjoyment.

We did a bed and breakfast tour of Ireland, and stayed at Ardawn house as part of our stay. Both Brenda and Mike were very friendly and despite the hitch in our trip did their very best to make us feel comfortable and at home. The location is difficult to beat with foot access to downtown Galway city center. The room was very comfortable and clean, although we found it difficult to sleep that night, though this may have had more to do with the events of the day than the bed we were sleeping on. Over all it was a great place to stay and a place that we would look into staying with in future travels.

We stayed at the Ardawn House for 2 nights in December 2013. After nearly 15 hours of travel, Mike and Breda's hospitality was just what we needed. We arrived early, and Mike suggested that we take a walk down to the square while they readied our room. Our room had a view of Lough Atalia, and the sunrise view was beautiful. The breakfast room was cozy, and the breakfast itself was excellent. The location was a great starting point for our day trips, and close enough to the square to walk a few times a day. Breda's Christmas village made us a little less homesick during the holidays, and her dining recommendations were on point. The room was comfortable and just the right size for the two of us. Mike communicated with us a few times via email before our stay, and has followed up with us after our trip. We truly enjoyed our stay and would absolutely stay again and recommend Ardawn House to any of our family and friends.

Beautiful house, warmest welcome, centrally located, a must if you are visiting Galway. A 15 minite walk from Eyre Square, comfortable accommodation, excellent breakfast, made two generations very happy and a new favourite for future West of Ireland trips.

When I was planning my trip to Ireland I knew I was going to be getting to Galway at night. The owners were very reassuring and conveniently arranged for someone to be at the bed and breakfast to make sure I was not locked out. Rita made a wonderful breakfast and was very helpful giving great advice about restaurants and towns to visit nearby. she even gave tips about the best tea to bring back home! I would definitely go back and recommend this place to anyone who wanted a great bed and breakfast experience in Ireland.
