“Wonderful stay in May 2010”
Reviewed 18 July 2011

(Note: TripAdvisor didn't let me select that we stayed here in May 2010. Since it forced me to select a date, I picked Aug. 2010.)
This review is long overdue. We took a trip to Ireland for a belated honeymoon, and our travel agent arranged for us to stay at the Claremount House about half-way through our 10-day trip. We stayed with Anna and Steven for two nights. They were so friendly and breakfast was delicious in their sunny waterfront-view room. (Anna's brown bread was amazing!) Our room was on the small side, but the bed was so comfortable that it made up for it. Nice linens, too. While there are a good number of rooms at the Claremount House, it still felt cozy and quiet, though I think there was just one other couple when we were there, so we may have lucked out on that front. The location across from a golf course was very picturesque and was an OK walk to restaurants and bars in Salthill.

We were warmly greeted by Anna and Stephen at their B&B. Rooms were spotless and beds really the best. Salthill was very close to Galway city a short bus ride, better than taking the car and also away from the city noise. The views of Galway Bay from B&B were great and it was lovely to have breakfast served while we gazed across the Bay. The Galway Golf Club was a short walk away and meals were very good and the view from their dining room over Galway Bay was wonderful. Our stay of 3 nights was more like staying with friends our hosts were very friendly and helpful and Stephen was a great breakfast chef. We enjoyed our walk around the Bay on a beautiful sunny day and also our walk into the city. A most enjoyable stay,

Our stay was very comfortable and the service was very personal and pleasant. Anna was the perfect hostess and all requests for brews, trips or help were answered and fulfilled with an honest and helpful attitude. The rooms were quiet, warm and relaxing, the beds were very comfortable and very very clean. Our breakfasts were well presented, very full choice to suit all tastes and cooked to personal choice, especially the eggs.
You could say the best cup of tea in Galway, as well as the best place to stay with great views and caring hosts. You can't help but hit it off with Anna she is a great woman who knows how to make you feel like an old friend and very very welcome.

Room Tip: 1st floor front rooms, for the best views

I loved this place! I wish I could go back. Steven and Ana were perfect hosts. The view from our bedroom window was of the golf course and the ocean. Just gorgeous. The bed and pillows were the most comfortable EVER! Even more comfortable than my own bed at home. The food was amazing. Awesome vegetarian options also. Ana even told our traveling companions (when they called) where we were headed that night so they could meet up with us. Lovely big friendly dog. I got to see her in the backyard. What a sweetheart! The bathroom looked brand new. So clean. The towels smelled so wonderful. Our room was even cleaned while we were out that day. Superb B&B. I would reccommend this place to everyone who visits Gayway. It is located in Salthill but there is a bus stop right out front. They even called a cab for us one night.

Claremount House has a definite benefit ..it's hosts Anna and Stephen! Friendly, enthusiastic and very helpful, we were delighted to stay with them for our overnight on the way to Connemara.
The room was small, but nicely appointed and spotlessly clean, as was the adjoining bathroom. A comfortable bed allowed for a solid sleep and the morning brought a full Irish breakfast prepared by chef Stephen, a nourshing end to our stay with them.
Our only disappointment, apart from the dreadful weather, was the location. While within a short walk of all that Salthill has to offer and steps from the boardwalk, Claremount House is on a busy main road, next door to a gas station and across the street somewhat from a pub. Even with the traffic though, we did not have our sleep disturbed.
A comfortable and pleasant place to stay.

When you arrive at the Claremont House bed and breakfast, you are warmly and enthusiastically greeted by Anna, the owner, who genuinely wants her guests to have the best stay ever! We spent 5 nights there and it felt like staying in the home of a friend - the beds and pillows are BY FAR the best we've ever slept on - absolute luxury - and Anna was great! Claremount House is in a superb location, with beautiful views overlooking the Galway Golf course and Galway Bay. It is on a busy street - but there is a lovely promenade along the waterway that you can take into town - (a 40 minute walk) - otherwise, it is a 5 minute drive. Claremount House is conveniently located to all the ammenities in Galway and Salt Hil, but isn't situated amongst the crowds, partiers, noise and congestion of the City centre. The Galway golf course clubhouse, next door, has a superb menu and food! Anna made our stay in Galway very special, indeed.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay with Anna and Steven, it was as if we were visiting family. They were very friendly and the rooms were very nice. They made great recommendations for local activities and tours as well as places to eat. If we get the chance to come back to Ireland we will plan on staying with them again!
