“Could not have been better”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

Loved Galway! Marless House is absolutely wonderful. Mary is a great hostess, and she helps with planning your sight seeing. When it came time to leave we ended up staying and talking with her for 2 hours. Don't look elsewhere, this is the place to stay. We walked into town every day though bus service is available. Will be returning.

I can't say anything that hasn't been said already: - "best b and b in Irleland" - true; “A welcoming atmosphere with a delightful host!” true.“Irish hospitality at its best!” - true; delicious breakfasts - true; spotlessly clean - true. It added enormously to our enjoyment of our few days away by staying in Marless House.

Mary and her fabulous hospitality made our recent trip a pleasure. The breakfast was a real treat and if you go, have the pancakes with warm honey. The atmosphere is cheery, the rooms are clean and cozy, and Mary herself is the ultimate of inn keepers. Just charming!

My friend and I had the pleasure of staying at Marless House for 5 nights. We were very sad to leave Mary's for our next B&B outside of Dublin. Mary is a wonderful hostess and made us feel very welcome. From helping us to plan our itinerary each day (and making any needed reservations), to the wonderful breakfasts, she was amazing. You will never leave her table feeling hungry. The food was wonderful....and like other reviews have mentioned, you HAVE to get the french toast! It is wonderful! Of course, so were the pancakes :) But the french toast was my favorite. The house is very close to the beach and it is just a short walk into Salthill. You are also within walking distance of Galway City (about 20-30 minute walk). This will definitely be our first stop on our next visit to Ireland. I have to say though, Mary spoiled us....although our next B&B was just fine, it wasn't Mary's and we realy missed her. Make sure to stop at O'Connor's Pub in Salthill for a pint of Guinness while you are in Salthill - great group of people.

Mary is wonderful and made our stay in Galway a special treat. The B&B itself was very clean, the rooms were welcoming, and the breakfast was fantastic. But it was Mary, herself, that made the Marless House a place we will return to. She was incredibly hospitable, easy to talk to, incredibly knowledgeable, and willing to help in any way to assist with your travel plans, including calling to book your tours. We will return so she can book our tour to the Aran Islands!

We stayed two nights at the Marless House on our trip around Ireland. This B&B is charming, and clean and most comfortable. We enjoyed staying away from the center of the city, but the SaltHill location was convenient and very close to the Latin Quarter. Mary is a charming Irish host and was helpful in every way.

As other reviewers have stated, Mary's hospitality is second to none. She warmly welcomed us to Marless House with a tray of tea and cookies, and was accommodating to us throughout our stay. We enjoyed the delicious, generous breakfast, as well as conversation with our charming hostess. Our bed was luxurious and comfortable, and the bathroom was beautiful and completely updated. One thing to note - when I was researching Galway B & B's I somehow missed the fact that this B & B is located in Salthill, a suburb outside of Galway. I absolutely realize this my own oversight, but for us the location was not the most convenient. The waterfront promenade in Salt Hill is lovely, but if you're interested in spending more time in the city, it might not be the best location for you.
