Marless House Bed & Breakfast

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 April 2014

We have been coming to Mary's and Tom's wonderful B&B for over 24 years and have never been disappointed. Immaculately clean, thoughtful detail for guests' comfort, and just a few steps away from Galway Bay. You can walk to a few really good restaurants and bars (maybe 3/4 mi.) but what makes this B&B really outstanding is the sincere warmth and generous spirit of Mary. She not only is able and willing to give whatever guidance you might need (anywhere in Ireland) but together with Tom, makes the best breakfast in Ireland. We have stayed in newer, bigger, more grand and more expensive B&Bs but the overall BEST B&B is Marless House. God willing, we'll return!

Room Tip: All rooms are suitable. Mary is thoughtful about where she'll put you, keeping in mind your com...

We recently spent three nights with Mary and Tom at Marless House. Words cannot express what a gracious hostess Mary is! We were warmly welcomed with tea and biscuits as we settled in. Mary provided us with a wealth of information about sights of Galway city, local tours, recommended several restaurants, and suggested pubs with scheduled music. Once we decided on a few activities she arranged the bookings. The tour operators even picked us up right outside the door! The B&B is lovely. It is just steps away from the beach with easy access to the city centre but a welcome distance from the hustle of the town. Marless House is spotless, the rooms are very comfortable, and filled with special touches. Mary out does herself with breakfast each morning! There are seemingly limitless choices, each cooked to perfection! It was a great start to long days of sightseeing. Mary has been opening her lovely home to guests for many years but she has not lost her touch about making each visitor feel at home. So glad we found her to make our visit to Galway extremely special!

Mary was wonderful even when we showed up early morning after flying overnight from the states. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were extremely clean! The breakfast was so delicious and we looked forward to it each morning. The afternoon coffee and tea was so nice too. The home is a quick walk down to the water which is close to everything. Plenty of pubs and shopping within walking distance. We look forward to returning.

We stayed with with Mary and Tom in August 2013 on our first visit to beautiful Galway. Our 12 year old son still raves about the 'best breakfast ever'! Mary is a wonderful host who made our stay top notch. Salthill is a lovely place to stay, right on the beach and in walking distance to good restaurants and pubs.

We stayed in a beautiful room that was very spacious.

We highly recommend this beautiful B&B, we will return!

Beautiful, clean B&B near waterfront just 3 km (2 miles) from Galway City Centre, with ability to walk or take bus to city centre. Irish hosts have been running this B&B for 33 years, and they are happy to share their knowledge of Ireland with their guests. Great Irish breakfast. Free parking.

I felt like a family guest of Mary's. Tom was away, but I enjoyed hearing about him and the family. Such a lovely home, great breakfast, great room, and outstanding hospitality. I couldn't have asked for a better stay for two nights with my twin college age daughters!

Lovely stay! Great breakfast. Warm welcoming by the lovely landlady! :-)
Galway as such may be a bit too touristic, but go west along the coast instead.
Close to the nice villages along the coast towards Connemara and to ferry/flight to Aran Islands.
