Marless House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 189 Galway B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 September 2013

This home has a luxurious feel to it, and the hospitality and breakfast are top notch. It gets our vote for best breakfast out of the 8 places we stayed while in Ireland. Mary will help you plan your day and has great maps and directions for you. You need it, just ask and she'll probably get it for you.
It's located just up the street from a nice beach. The bus stop to Galway's Latin Quarter is down the street a block, and cost is eu 1.80 each way. We found this a great way to get to Galway as parking there could be a challenge, and loved the area both during the day and at night. Our room was nice - rooms in front may have a better view than those in back. The bedding is top notch and felt wonderful. I wish we could have spent another day or two there.

My husband & I stayed at Marless House for 4 nights in early September. It was ideal. Room was immaculate. We woke to a view of a lovely garden with 10-foot sunflowers! Breakfast each morning was beyond excellent. Location is perfect. It's really a very nice walk into city center (we did it every day) but if you'd rather, you can catch the bus at the end of street. If all of these aren't reason enough to convince you, then consider the fact that you won't find a better B&B hostess in all of Ireland! Mary took care of all our sightseeing needs -- booked our trip to the Aran Islands -- offered restaurant and pub recommendations (Lohan's and Da Roberta in Salthill are both very nice) -- and was an absolute delight each time we chatted with her. Our stay at Marless House was perfect!

Sorry this is a little late better late than never though. What a wonderful place this is Mary and Tom are amazing. Our room had the biggest most comfortable bed, great nights sleep followed by pancakes, blueberries, strawberries and Toms honey delicious. Mary is an incredible hostess who takes time for everyone. Thankyou so much for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Every room will be lovely I'm sure,

Beautiful B&B with outstanding breakfast, clean, clean rooms and Mary's warm Irish hospitality. The dining room is beautifully set and the selection of breakfast items is unbelievable. The location is just a few steps from the promenade along Galway Bay and an easy walk to many pubs and eating places. Also you can catch the bus on the corner which will take you into the shopping district. You can't go wrong with this B&B.

We were looking for somewhere convenient to stay before catching the ferry at Rossaveel. This was located on the edge of Galway and only about a 30-minute drive from the ferry, making it convenient. Marless House is located just off of the promenade along the Bay which provided us an interesting walk to dinner. Everything in our room was spotless and well maintained; however, bathroom was extremely small--something I am willing to overlook given the price of the room. Service was very friendly. We got all our questions about the ferry answered and a good dinner recommendation. Breakfast included a buffet with fruit and breads bad several hot choices with Mary offering to mix and match anything on the menu. Best value room of the trip!

Marless House is a cozy, homey place with warmth and good food. The home is clean and comfortable because of innkeeper, Mary, who makes her guests feel welcome and at home. The breakfast is outstanding. I had a lovely room with a beautiful view of the garden. The place is close to all the attractions of Galway. I enjoyed my stay there very much!

When planning a vacation to the area of Galway don't get a hotel but spend time here at Marless House and I promise you will sleep and be treated better than any hotel can take care of you. Mr. and Mrs. Geraghty will treat you as if you are family and by the time you leave you will have them on your Christmas Card List. The nuts and bolts of what you may be looking for in a B&B are all here. The shower is easy to understand and the hot water seems to go forever and breakfast is actually a menu that has everything from lox to pancakes, eggs, bacon, things that take a few minutes to items that could be a while but between Tom and Mary I don't think we ever waited more than ten minutes. The rooms are spotless! Just spotless. When I popped in to let the housekeeper know we were leaving she was busy wiping down the headboard and didn't have her shoes on but had them outside of the door. Everything to help keep the room clean. There is free internet, maps and directions are just a matter of asking, there is free parking which is tight but that is par for the area, and a secured entrance but both Mr. and Mrs. Geherty are there and at all times one is there. When we left it felt like leaving family and a warm friendship has been made.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great but if you have a preference just send an email and they are stellar at g...
