“Adorable!!!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

Absolutely loved this B&B!! The owners are fantastic, the breakfast is great, and the location is perfect!! It's about a 10 min walk from downtown so it's nice and quiet at night. I would highly recommend it and will be staying here again in the future!

We have stayed here many times and without a doubt the best b&b we have stayed in.
It ticks all the boxes. Beautiful accommodation, great location, great hosts and wonderful breakfasts. The fruit salad alone is worth the stay!
We come back every August and Frank can't do enough for you.
All in all a very relaxing stay. Is it any wonder it's always busy.

With my friends we spent 2 nights at the Petra House in Galway and it was really good. Really huge room, close from the Galway centre (10 minutes by walk).
Really good breakfast (try the salmon bagel, its delicious). The owner is so kind and helpful.

Typical price for a 1 night stay while we were in Galway Ireland but the room, breakfast and hospitality were outstanding. Our room was large enough to have a double bed as well as 2 single beds, and not be cramped. The breakfast was probably the best we have has at a B&B in terms of quality, quantity and presentation. The hosts were friendly and helped with our couple of questions.

From the moment you walk in the front door of Petra House, you feel at home, even if your real home is across the ocean. The hosts, Frank and Joan, are very charming and welcoming. Our room was beautifully furnished, clean, and comfortable. Joan cooked a fabulous breakfast and Frank served it in their elegant dining room. Petra House is located a little bit out of the main part of town but was convenient for walking to the shops and restaurants. We highly recommend Petra House as a "home away from home" for travelers in Ireland.

Frank and Joan are wonderful hosts, friendly and welcoming. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The breakfast was the best of our entire holiday and caringly served by Frank, and prepared by Joan. Her famous bread was really good and I've taken one of the recipe cards that was offered. The location was very convenient and just a short walk to the city centre. I was able to park my rental car in one of their off road spaces in the front, which gave me peace of mind. There is something to be said when you see vacancy signs at most of the other B&Bs and not at Petra House. Thanks Frank and Joan for a wonderful stay and your kind hospitality.
