Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I stayed at Abbeyville for 2 nights during our recent holiday in Ireland. Abbeyville is everything a B&B should be and more! It is ideally positioned down a quiet lane so is very tranquil, the garden and surrounding town of Barna are so pretty and it is a short, easy drive to Galway City. Our room was spotlessly clean and well equipped; the amazing hostess Bernadette provided so many small touches that make all the difference, like a helpful visitors book and tissues in our room. Bernadette herself is an absolute gem - she is warm, professional and an accomplished hostess. Not to mention an excellent cook and talented artist! The breakfast deserves special mention - there was an excellent choice of food and the full Irish breakfast was the best we had all holiday. Bernadette's freshly-baked scones are irresistible! Bernadette also provided a number of helpful tips on where to find a good laundry service and good places to eat. This stay was a definite highlight of our holiday - thank you Bernadette xx.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights this week and we were mightily impressed with the high quality of the accommodation. Our room was clean, recently decorated and spacious. There was plenty of choice for breakfast which was prepared and cooked to perfection. The location, in central Barna, is handy for a good choice of restaurants for dinner. The owner, Bernadette, is warm and accommodating. In short, I can highly recommend this B&B.

Great room very clean and a very comfortable bed. Nice walk to the pier and a few local eateries very close as well as a supermarket that is open until 10.00pm. Bernadette is just gorgeous, very warm and friendly and makes a generous full Irish breakfast. Also has a good range of yoghurts, cereals, fresh fruit and homemade scones (yum). Only sorry we weren’t staying another night.

Great location, just off the main street so it's very quiet. Bernadette is friendly and warm and made us feel very welcome in her home. The bed was very comfortable and we had a really nice breakfast with lots of choices. Bearna is small but nice to stroll around with a few shops and cafes. Very near Silver Strand beach which is lovely for a walk/swim.

I can’t recommend it highly enough, lovely lady who runs it (Bernadette), great rooms, clean and well appointed and a terrific breakfast. Just brilliant and a good location. Really really worth a stay as Galway is a funky, vibrant town to visit and this is the best base to do it from.

We chose to stay outside of Galway to get a feel for some other cities instead of being in the hustle and bustle of Galway, and I'm so glad we did. Barna was a quaint port town with friendly locals. We stayed at Abbeyville, which was easy to find, onsite parking, and was in walking distance to some good restaurants and the coast. The owner was exceptionally welcoming and attentive. The B&B is on the small side so it was nice to meet some of the other guests over breakfast. The room was a perfect size for my husband and I with a bathroom inside of the room, including a hair dryer. The breakfast was delicious, and she offered so many options. We chose the traditional Irish breakfast since we hadn't had one yet, and it was spot on! Our stay and experience was flawless, and I would recommend staying here if you find yourself looking for a quieter alternative to staying in Galway. We were only a 12 mile drive from Galway so we were able to take a taxi to and from the city for a night out. (Which I recommend as well... but we'll save that for another review!)

Abbeyville was our favorite B&B of our trip to Ireland! Bernadette was a genuine delight as a hostess and treated us like family while keeping us entertained and well cared for. We would definitely stay with her again! Inn is within short walk of restaurants and is near Galway Bay.

What a great place to stop after a days travel. Bernadette was so helpful with her knowledge of the local area. A very clean and spacious accommodation. We were from Australia so she went out of her way to welcome us and give us as much information of the area as she could. Would definitely recommend this B & B as a stop over.
