We visited Galway with another couple in Sept 2010. The B&B is a real family affair and we had the great pleasure of getting to know all its members. Our room was spotless and when we lodged a minor complaint (a squeaky door knob!) it was attended to immediately. We were served a delicious breakfast by the mother and daughter who were both very charming and warm. The entire family was extremely helpful with excursion, restaurant suggestions.
The B&B is about a 20-25 minute walk from Galway center. There is also a bus for those who might prefer not to take the flat, pleasant walk. While this might be seen by some as a minor inconvenience, we realized it was a plus as the city is quite crowded and noisy during the evenings, especially during the weekend.
We felt the B&B offered good value and would definitely consider returning. Recommended.
