Reviewed 7 August 2013 via mobile

I stayed two nights here with Anne and John, who are truly delightful people. The room was small, but perfectly adequate and immaculately clean. It may sound a little weird, but the sheets may have smelled the freshest and cleanest of any I'd experienced in Ireland. The bathroom was similarly clean, and the shower had great water pressure and plenty of hot water.

The breakfast was tasty, and served with ample charm by the hosts. I didn't require their help myself, but o witnessed them helping to arrange tours for other guests, making phone calls and arranging transport on their behalf.
The only thing travelers might want to be aware of is that, while close to Salthill, Ontario House is a little bit of a walk from the city center. I found this a plus, as I enjoyed taking the air and working off some of the food I'd consume in town, but if you're mobility-impaired or otherwise disinclined to walk a bit, it's something to be aware of.

Overall, I had a great experience here. I recommend it and would stay here again.

Anne and John are the perfect hosts. The room was great, with fresh clean sheets right from the clothes line! They were very accommodating with booking my day tour, and most helpful with directions and bus schedules. They are a 2 minute walk to the promenade. Highly recommend and will return with my family.

Anne and John are perfect hosts. They are welcoming and kind. Their home is beautiful and every room is comfortable and quiet with superb beds and every amenity. There is Wi-Fi throughout and TV in every room. Anne makes a wonderful breakfast with all the trimmings, you can also ask for porridge (oatmeal) and they'll bring you almonds and raisins. They have fresh fruit, cereal and yogurt besides the traditional Irish Breakfast. Anne and John are very helpful. They can book tours, the ferry to Inish Mor, help with directions of all kinds. The b and b is a short walk to shops, restaurants and the beach. There is an amusement park very close and a large grassy park as well as a Casino. The bed and breakfast is in an upscale community called Salthill which is about a 5-10 minute drive from Galway, or you can walk to Galway along the promenade that follows the beach. You'll see swans and waterfowl along the way. A fantastic place with incredibly kind people. Say hi from Joy and Rebecca.

Anne and John were the perfect B&B hosts. They even would have gotten my favorite rhubarb yogurt for breakfast if I had asked them! The room was good sized for the three of us and the location near the promenade made for a great walk into Galway city center for the evening! We would definitely stay with here again.
