“Great location, surprise wee find, loved it!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We were delighted when we arrived at The Stop by location, decor and hospitality, especially as it was an accidental find on Trip Advisor. While our room & ensuite were small it was clean, quiet, had a comfortable bed & the decor was fab & tasteful. Russell's advice on where to eat & drink were spot on and we enjoyed fabulous food & rip roaring, toe tapping music. Nothing was too much trouble & Russell is a wealth of local information. The B&B has a very comfortable well stocked living space that we made use of & enjoyed relaxing there having had too lively a night the night before. On our second night there was a baby in the house, 2 rooms away but we weren't aware of any undue noise so other reviewers have maybe just been unlucky.

Initially once booked I had to change the dates and Russell was very accommodating, keeping in touch along the way which I found reassuring.

We couldn't recommend this B&B enough & would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Our room was at the back of the house which is on a main road. While I can't speak for rooms at...

A gem. The kind of B&B I've always wanted but have so rarely found here in Ireland. Great value, great care, great attention to detail. Rooms decorated with an eye for design and character (with some furniture built or modified by the host, Russ I believe), lots of art on the walls. My single room was more than adequate, perfect bathroom. Lovely (customisable) breakfast using high quality local ingredients, a hand-drawn map on arrival with recommendations for local eateries and attractions. Living room stocked with great books – and lots of herbal tea! I was in town for the Galway International Arts Festival, and the hosts were knowledgable and interested in chatting about the work – incredibly warm environment. A quality establishment, and an equal match for the world class art and culture taking place in the city that week. A stone's throw from the Spanish arch end of town. I'll be back.

We had an amazing stay at The Stop, since the booking (Russell was very nice) until our goodbyes. Unforgettable breakfast, really nice staff and great decor what you wouldn't see in other B&Bs -- lots of cool exhibition posters and nice wood furniture made by Russell himself (!). Very close to Galway city centre and also to Salthill. Our room, although small, was very clean, bright and well decorated. Russell also helps a lot when it comes to planning journeys around the area (like Connemara, the Aran islands and The Burren) and gives great tips about Galway city. The Stop is an amazing place to be -- and to see, eat, sleep and drink! Would definitely come back there, many times.

It was very hard to find and to reach the parking space we had to drive through a very narrow road. The room and bathroom was quiet small. The breakfast was very good. The hosts were very friendly and polite. The price was ok.

No musty sofas and potpourri here -- everything was spare, clean and light. We had a family room that fit two beds (double, single) and a desk, plus a tiny but totally serviceable en suite bathroom. Agree with another reviewer about thin walls, but other guests were very quiet and considerate so wasn't an issue for us. Lots of interesting and fun artwork on the walls and a very quaint and farm-feeling breakfast room (good breakfast too!). The location is wonderful -- right along the water and a picturesque three-minute walk to the heart of the medieval town. Definitely recommend.

The house was modern with a cute artistic flavor. The bedrooms were clean and crisp. The walk to the busy part of town was short. The bar and entertainment district was lively. Our breakfast in the morning was delicious. Everything was easy and convenient. Great stay.

I have stayed at The Stop for 11 nights in June and had the most wonderful time. The rooms are lovely (I had #11 on the top floor), tidy, and everything has a homey touch to it. The smell of fresh coffee and bacon in the morning is absolutely wonderful. Rus and Emer are the loveliest hosts ever. I will definitely return and will be staying at The Stop:)
