Bernard and Dolorus were fantastic. The location was perfect - a few minutes from the centre of town. The rooms were more like apartments. Breakfast 10/10. I will be back next year 100% Thanks again, Ed

This is a great place to stay with a warm welcome from the host Dolores. It is a short walk from the centre of Galway yet in a nice quiet area. The en-suite bedroom was clean tidy and comfortable. The vegetarian breakfast was filling and the host attentive. Will definitely stay again!

Great and lovely place to stay in Galway. Dolores is very welcoming and cooks great breakfast. The B&B is a few minutes away from the city. You have a parking space as well. Best quality/price place in Galway!

We recently stayed here and i cannot say enough about it. Perfect Location, it was a 3mins walking distance to the centre of Galway City but still had the peace and quiet to ensure a good night sleep. The owner Dolores was away but we were looked after exceptionally by Sean and Stephen who couldn't do enough for us. They...

We'd read all the great reviews of the Forge House and decided to book our 5 night stay in Galway there. From the first email contact, we knew this was a great decision. Dolores was so nice and responsive! Once we arrived and she opened the door, it really already felt like we were going to be staying with a...

“There was a skylight above my bed in our room. I am a sound sleeper so it was ok, but for some that might be bothersome.”

“The room on the ground floor is perhaps more convenient for those who feel reluctant to climb the stairs, has a more simple setting, less space and and en-suite bathroom. One room on the 1st floor (where I stayed) seems a little bit more spacious and the bathroom is outside.”
