We booked two nights at the guesthouse as it was situated exactly where we wanted to be to allow us to visit the Burren and North Clare.
After a short delay by staff attending Reception we were shown to our room which afforded plenty of room in both bedroom and en-suite. The power shower was a plus and extremely easy to operate. The room was very warm but we couldn't get the window to stay open. This situation was dealt with the following morning when the person who was to clean our room balanced the window so as to keep it open.
The bed was very uncomfortable for our personal needs and both of us woke frequently during the night with back aches. On both mornings we suffered from very sore backs until we loosened up. Additionally, there is a lot of noisy traffic passing beside the accommodation from early morning, more marked because we had to keep the window open because of the overly warm room.
Breakfasts were very tasty and filling - so much so that we didn't need any lunch as they kept us going all day.
The guesthouse is newly refurbished to a high standard and the paintings on all the walls are in keeping with the local natural environment.
There is a supermarket one side of the accommodation and a pharmacy on the other side, providing for all eventualities.
Right opposite was a pub and restaurant which did 'Early Bird' two-course dinners for 15.95 euro, representing great value as the portions were generous and the quality of taste extremely pleasing to the palate.
I would thoroughly recommend this establishment owned by John Burke to everyone contemplating a trip to Galway/Clare. Very high standards with friendly service at very low cost!
