Sea Mist Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #28 of 189 Galway B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 January 2010

The reviews we read before going to Ireland in April, 2009 helped us to select this wonderful B&B in Galway which was very easy to locate by extremely tired travelers! After parking our rental car right in front of the entrance, we were warmly greeted at the door by Mary and Roddy.We were delighted with their hospitality, good food and conversation while we were there. The rooms were very clean(we're very picky), and we had a nice large bathroom. This was the only B&B we stayed in on our trip which offered us use of their computer to send emails back home to West Virginia. The location was great and Mary and Roddy were very helpful with directions and suggestions for the evening. This was our first night in Ireland after a long overnight flight and day of sightseeing, and we so much enjoyed the restful night and teriffic breakfast the next morning! Thank you Mary and Roddy-we will definitely stay with you on our next trip to your awesome country!

Mary and Roddy were most helpful to us during our 2 night stay at Auburn house. The location was a bit far out of town , but for us with a car it really did not matter. The room was a bit small and there really was nowhere to put our suitcases. We unpacked everything and put the stuff in the closet. The bathroom was quite small too , but we are not large people so it was fine. If someone was bigger it could be a problem.

The room and the bathroom were meticulously clean and although the room faced the road , we were not bothered by the traffic. It was cool out and we kept the window closed though.

Whenever we wanted directions , Roddy would draw us a map and send us on our way. Both Mary and Roddy were really helpful to us while we were there.

Breakfasts were excellent and there was plenty of everything. All in all we were very satisfied with our stay there and would not hesitate to go back there again.

We showed up late, no problem for Mary (she greeted us upon arrival). Broken flip flop, no problem for Mary (she loaned us a pair). Lost our luggage, no problem for Mary (she loaned us pajamas). You will find no better hosts in Ireland. Recommended we visit Connemara, which became one of the highlights of our trip. We absolutely couldn't have been happier with the accomodations, food, or hospitality. Worderful!!

We stayed with Roddy and Mary for two nights while in Galway. Wonderful b & b. Hosts were extremely helpful with directions and recommendations. We stayed at their place on Saturday and Monday with a trip to Aran Islands on Sunday, and they were wonderful to let us leave our belongings in our room while we were gone for the night, rather than have to pack everything up and leave in the car at the airport. Breakfast was delicious. They were wonderful with our daughter, and after we left had found her blankie, and have posted it back to us in the states. We thank Roddy and Mary for making our stay very welcoming and look forward to seeing them again on our next visit. We loved the use of the computer and sky one!

A great place to stay. Mary and Roddy were wonderful. Mary marked the map for great jewellery purchases - Roddy marked the map for interesting bypasses on our ongoing journey. Lovely hosts! Room was wonderful - breakfast even more so!!

Locality great. Great places to eat of a night time within an easy stroll, Lovely stopover!

We are a family of two adults and 2 pre-teen children and stayed at the Auburn House for two nights in July. We booked two adjoining rooms and they were clean and well looked after.

The B&B is well situated just outside Galway city centre on a bus route or an easy drive. I would recommend taking the bus as parking can be difficult to find downtown and fairly pricy.

Our hosts were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and of course breakfast was terrific. We would certainly stay again at Auburn House if we return to Galway.
