We stayed here for two nights while visiting Galway. Bridie was a fantastic host with perfect suggestions for restaurants in town! The B&B was in a quiet area but only a short walk to the city center where there was plenty of pubs, restaurants, and nightly music. Our room was perfect (best full-sized blowdryer!) and breakfast was prepared as requested....

Nice guesthouse which is less than a 10 minute walk from the centre of Galway. George and Bridie were very friendly and helpful, they even lent us a map for when we drove to the Cliffs of Moher / the Burren (which is well worth the drive). As it was busy when we stayed, they kindly moved us to the...

Bridie and George were great. The room was clean, the breakfast was tasty, and the location was perfect. This place is within a 10 minute walk from the main restaurant and pub strip. There is plenty of parking if you have a car. No complaints.

Good location, free parking. Can walk to city center, night life. George was very pleasant. The room was extremely small and cramped for 2 single girlfriends. There was no soap in the bathroom, bring your own. Breakfast was good.

I had a wonderful stay at Sli Na Mara. Bridie was wonderful, super helpful and accommodating. The breakfast was great, the room was perfect: clean, neat, cozy, with an incredibly comfortable bed. The place is about a 10 min walk into the heart of the town, and about a 5 min walk to another area with bars and restaurants. Overall,...

The location, as most comments remark, is perfect. A lot closer to the city centre than it appears on the maps, and in a nice quite neighborhood, so you get a good sleep.

Staying at Sli Na Mara B&B was a very nice experience. The room, although small, it was very clean and comfortable. The house was located in a quiet residence area, but close to Galway touristic sites and the sea side. Bridie, the hostess was very helpfull and attentive, and my husband and I really enjoyed our time there.
