Waterfall Lodge
Reviewed 8 April 2010

We spent 3 nights here over Easter weekend. The house and its surroundings are beautiful and very peaceful. Kathleen and John were wonderful hosts. The beds were so comfortable!! Great location for visiting Galwy, Connemara and surrounding area.

This place is amazingly beautiful! The location could not be better. Right beside a rushing stream and not far from the center of town. Very bright inside with lots of windows and wonderful accommodations!

We spent three nights at the Waterfall Lodge B&B and would gladly return again. Our hosts, John and Kathleen Dolly, were warm, friendly, gracious, and welcoming. The breakfasts were wonderful. The first morning I enjoyed scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, then shifted to the scambled eggs and bacon. (I absolutely love Irish bacon!) There was a gorgeous four-poster bed in our room with lovely views of the grounds in full blossom. The lodge is right near the river and the sound of the waterfall and fast moving river, lulled us to sleep every night. I have never played "fairy princess" in my life that I can recall, but I sure felt like one at Waterfall Lodge.

The Waterfall Lodge is a beautiful home filled with gorgeous antique furnishings, with a pretty creek and waterfall right outside the house. It is a perfect central location to visit the Connemara area, including Kylemore Abbey, the town of Cong (of Quiet Man fame), and Ashford Castle (now a 5 star hotel). There are hidden roads nearby that are incredibly scenic. Kathleen Dolly, the owner of Waterfall Lodge, is very welcoming, and the food is excellent.

We enjoyed a one night stay in this old house and appreciated it very much. The garden and the interior are both worth a visit, even if not staying, and the welcoming of our hosts was great.

We love, love, loved our stay at the Waterfall Lodge. Only stayed one night, but wish we would've stayed two or three. We had a beautiful room (it was painted orange'ish I believe if you want to request it). The inn is located about a 10 minute walk from the city center, so having a car was nice in case of rain.

Breakfast was amazing. They had pancakes and french toast available! A great break from all of the traditional irish breakfasts offered everywhere else we stayed.

The most beautiful location for a romantic getaway or just a place to relax. Manicured gardens, the waterfall is next to the house with easy access to a bridge over the falls located behind the house, Wonderful breakfast selection including salmon and homemade jams.

Beautiful antique furniture downstairs and very comfortable bedrooms and large baths upstairs. Plenty of privacy, but helpful innkeepers if you have a request.
