Given all the great reviews this place has had, we had high expectations of a great visit. Sadly, they were not met. I am not saying we had major complaints, but there were no great plusses either and we left disappointed. We booked the Riverside Suite which was expensive and we were expecting some degree of luxury. The suite was frankly rather plain and could do with refurbishment. The room was cold when we arrived , and later when we returned from days out, and took about an hour to heat up with the heater provided. There was no hot water for a shower on one of the three nights. More importantly than these minor criticisms we did not receive the kind of welcome and attention that you get in the top B and Bs. On arrival we were given a town map, what turned out to be incorrect information about parking costs right outside the house and a room key and that was that. No real effort then or later to make our stay special . This seems in contrast to others so maybe we were unlucky but it was not a memorable experience and we will not be returning.

The staff at Corrib House was so helpful and welcoming, offering us tea upon arrival and leaving a sweet treat and card in our room on my birthday! The breakfast was phenomenal, and I appreciated that healthy options were on the menu. The view from the Angler's Rest room cannot be beat. The Corrib House is very conveniently located, yet away from the noise of Galway City. Highly recommended!

All we can say is WOW. The Corrib House was amazing. We had the best time, welcomed by the best staff. Klaudia and Leah were incredible gals that made us feel so welcome. We stayed in the Salmon Weir room and it was the most lovely, quaint room with the best view of the river. It was quiet, romantic and beautifully decorated. Our favorite place we stayed on our 10 day Ireland trip. We wish we had more days here. It was so worth the price.

It’s greatly telling when one travels to a new place, stumbles upon a real gem and simply wishes the stay to not end. This is how it was for us at The Corrib House. We were greeted and welcomed and embraced by true kindness and ultimate care and attention to detail. This lovely spot, on the River Corrib, adjacent to the lively pulse of Galway center, was the perfect pause for us. What a special family of staff are here! Always at the ready for extras or specials, we felt truly cared for. Thank you All, for the best stay ever!

Wonderful stay in understated top class accommodation overlooking the river running through the city. Particularly enjoyed the relaxed and informal but attentive service. A real chance to appreciate the warm friendliness of Galway people. Five minutes from the centre on foot but just far enough to avoid any late night noise. If you can finish the Full Irish breakfast, you'll be doing better than us.

I am not so sure where to start with everything good about this place, it came highly recommended from an Airbnb host and I can tell you that everything far exceeded any expectations we could’ve dreamed of having. I had some special requests for some surprises - they never hesitated to acquire them for me and place them in the rooms of my family. The kindness via email even before we arrived just exuded the greatest hospitality you could ever want. But then to have arrived and to receive it and see it in person it’s just something everyone should experience. The field was absolutely impeccable, delicious and served with the greatest care and kindness. Everyone here is happy and joyful. I wish I could remember everyone’s names but for sure the stand out is Klaudia who did so much and always did it with such grace and kindness and a smile. Marek the chef and his sous chef Kim huge praise. The day that we were departing we had to leave an hour prior to when they start service and they showed up early so they could serve us a warm breakfast before we departed. I mean where will you ever find that kind of service?? Again I wish that I could remember everyone’s names but just trust that they are all amazing. The house is beautiful the garden is beautiful. I will dream about this place for a long time to come that is for sure.

Wonder accommodations in a quiet and scenic neighborhood of old Galway. I was among the first international travelers to Ireland on July 19 and Galway was my first stop. Could not have asked for a better welcome to Ireland. Friendly and caring staff and breakfast is outstanding. I stayed in the Riverside suite and it was lovely.

Although the food was excellent, the restaurant lacked in relation to their Covid 19 safety procedures. While there was plexi-glass at the till, the staff did not wear any fave coverings and tables were quite close together.

Response from Corrib House, General Manager at Corrib House Guest Accommodation
Responded 25 Aug 2020
Hi Emma, many thanks for the positive review of our food! We have taken rigorous COVID-19 measures and your last comment seems misinformed as there is no COVID procedure that we have not followed. We adhere strictly to -one metre- distance between our tables, which is measured by tape on the floor, because we are a 'controlled indoor environment'. While you may be used to a two metre distance, we are completely in line with governmental regulations. With this extra risk mitigation we also implement numerous other procedures that are not necessary at -two metre- distance (105 minute limit on a table, separate entrance and exits, every window open for proper ventilation, a sanitation station, and strict contact tracing for every customer). Our staff have been wearing face coverings since the first week in August, despite them still not being compulsory. We would be more than happy to talk you through the full extent of our action against COVID-19, as this is something that we take extremely seriously. Public safety is our absolute priority- we appreciate that it is for you as well. Thanks again for taking the time to leave us a review and hope you can pop by again to us soon. Kind regards, Management

As a frequent visitor to Galway over the past four years for business and pleasure, this has become my go-to place to lay my head. Centrally located with stunning views over the River Corrib, the accommodation is elegant and extremely comfortable. And the breakfast is the best in town: fresh local ingredients, cooked to order and always delicious. And price-wise, you will pay the same elsewhere and get a lot less.

We stayed in the Corrib House for two nights. The service was outstanding warm and welcoming. The interior makes you feel like in an Instagram-Account. The food was delicious- for the eye as well as for our tummy. Corrib guest house's location is perfect for a walk into the city centre and for a road trip to Connemara National Park. We will definitely come back again!
