Periwinkle Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #32 of 189 Galway B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 July 2012

Our room was gorgeous, the beds and linens supreme, and the breakfast was delicious! This B & B was located less than a ten minute walk, along the ocean, to the heart of Galway! My daughter and I could not have been more pleased with every aspect of this B & B!
Joan was a tremendously gracious and accomodating host, and she also gave us some great tips regarding our planned excursions to the Aran Islands and elsewhere. We cannot wait to go back to Ireland, and there is no doubt where we will stay in Galway! Do the same and you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: we stayed in room 6 on the main floor, which had a queen bed, a twin bed and a private bathroom. It...

It's a lovely B&B with nice rooms and a good breakfast. Joan, the owner is always eager to help her guests and make everything right for them.
It lies near to the town centre and next to the sea-promenade in a quite area.
We loved it and recommend it to all.

A beautiful B&B on a quiet street, right across the street from the Bay, and a short walk from the City Centre. Breakfast was fabulous - my teenage son now expects a traditional Irish breakfast every morning! Best night sleep I had since arriving!

Our room was neat, clean, and comfortable! And Joan! A wonderful hostess who went out of her way to make sure we had clean clothes and, in spite of a busy morning, made reservations for us to take the ferry to the Aran Islands (PLUS booking us the last the room at the Pier Hotel on Inishmore). The presentation of the breakfasts (we were there for two) were the best, by far, of any we had during our three week stay in Ireland - plenty of yogurt, fruit, cereals, orange juice, and the eggs and salmon, with their topping of greens, were perfect. My husband and I would stay at the Periwinkle over and over and over again.

It was a nice stay in a lovely house with very lovely hostess Joan. Just 10 minutes walk from city center. Lovely breakfast every morning, possible to choose between different dishes. Feels like visiting your granny. Lovely!

We've visited the Periwinkle Bed & Breakfast for the Ironman 70.3 this year and it was a wonderful Stay. The lady of the house explained the Irish history and culture to us and we had a most comfortable room to sleep. We were racing the 70.3 Ironman and Joan, the lady of the house, was with us every second. She prepared us breakfast at most inhuman early times. It has a fantastic location one row down to a beautiful coastline just a minute away. The bay has a wonderful scenery and downtown is a walking distance. On top it Joan is so well connected that she is able to arrange things for her guest, other people would hold for impossilbe. The wonderful Irish weather and landscape close by is a treat.

Joan, the owner, is a very pleasant woman who was more than helpful in everything. She helped with directions, travel arrangements, where to eat, what to see and even told us of a great show that night we would otherwise would not have known about.

Joan and her B&B are welcoming, but also let you get on with your trip. This being my first experience at a B&B, I did not once feel like I was intruding. To my surprise, there was a toilet in every room to allow more privacy.

The Periwinkle is just a short and pleasant walk from Galway city center or the Salthill area. The only issue was that pictures of the area made me think that we would have a view of the sea, but it was a block away. It was not something I missed as it was unnecessary to the overall stay.
