I was recommended this place by a work colleague. Have to say this is one of the most delightful B&B's that I've stayed in. Owners are very friendly. Everything you ever wanted is on hand on hand. The bed was so comfortable that I didn't stir once in the night (and this comes from someone who fidgets). I was located at the front and was given the option to smoke out on the balcony area. Bearing in mind its on a main road you don't hear any noise.

Lovely b+b, rooms perfectly adequate for a nights stay, big comfortable bed, spotless bathroom, toiletries and tea making facilities included in room. Also lots of storage space. Comfortable rooms. Lovely dining room for breakfast, very enjoyable cooked breakfast, made to order so lovely and fresh! Nice atmosphere in the breakfast roomt, lovely background music and dainty old fashioned crockery!! Lovely place to stay would recommend to anyone. Felt very welcome from the minute I arrived to my departure!! Very well run!! Only 5 mins walk to Eyre Square also, so its a perfect location on College Road. I will definitely be back.

Just back after spending a lovely weekend in this guest house for a family member's birthday weekend. It was like a home away from home. Very comfortable, quiet, welcoming, great breakfast, and extremely helpful staff. The beds are very comfortable, the best nights sleep I've had in a long time! There is a lovely comfortable sitting room available to relax in. The guest house is in a great location...5 minute walk to Eyre square and 40 minute walk to lovely Salthill. I am already looking forward to going back there for the next family occasion!

College Crest is a quiet, unassuming guest house that is very conveniently located very near City Hall. It is a short walk, even with a broken foot bone from the pedestrian zone in the center of Galway. It is clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great. Recommendations and directions were right on the mark. The staff was pleasant and helpful even after we left. When we got home I found I had lost my glasses (I wear contact lenses most of the time.) I contacted College Crest, was told they found them and would send them to me. A week later, they arrived in the mail. No Hassle, No fuss. I greatly appreciate this kindness.

Perfect location to walk into Galway. Beds were comfortable and clean. Five minute walk into Galway. Breakfast was good and very speedy each morning. Good hot water pressure. The price was right as well.

The B&B is very close to the City Center (5 walking minutes). The rooms are nice and clean. Helen and the girls are very nice and always friendly. You don't have to tell them the day before when and what you're having for breakfast. You can just walk down between 8 and 10 and have whatever you'd like.
I surely take that B&B again!

Room Tip: Eventhough it's in the City it is very quiet for sleeping!
