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 wife and I and our 2 granddaughters aged 7 and 9 stayed at the lovely Ardawn House for 2 nights in a family size room. This B&B was spectacular in every way. Spotlessly clean, great location, free onsite parking, and the best breakfasts we had on our 10 day trip to Ireland. Van Denis and his wife are charming hosts who went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. They even offered the use of their washer and dryer to us! The nightly rate is very fair and we would advise booking direct with the property.

The Ardawn House was a fantastic place to stay while visiting Galway. It was easy to find and use a base while driving around to the many locations in the area and then stepping out at night to walk around the city. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was fantastic. Dennis is a very engaging host and made us comfortable.

Great location, quiet but still an easy walk into the city. Very comfortable bed. Breakfast's are very good, fresh and tasty, Dennis added to the experience being a great host. I was a bit concerned being so close to the Greyhound track but that was no issue at all.

We had a quality breakfast of generous portions. Deep comfortable bed. Calm and neutral decoration in bedroom. Even the stair carpet felt expensive. Dennis was a great host at breakfast. Although next door to Galway Greyhound stadium we were not disturbed at all by the evening activity.

Great location with walking distance to the city center. The rooms are modern and clean. The beds are super comfy. The service is amazing. Breakfast was at restaurant level 🌟 worth every euro. Staff goes over and beyond to make you feel welcome.

We've not finished our stay here, but the host of this B&B is SO gracious and accommodating! We had a last-minute change, and he handled everything with ease. The location is perfect, and the room was spotless. Laundry facilities are on-site as well, which is fantastic for longer stays/tours of the country. Can't recommend this place enough! Thanks again for being wonderful!

We had the pleasure of staying two nights at Ardawn House in April 2019. Very well kept and comfortable room. Owner's Mike and Breda were friendly and helpful with advice. Our second night we were the only couple and we were impressed breakfast that morning was the same delicious spread as the first morning when most rooms were rented. Great location only about a 15 minute walk to downtown. We would definitely stay at Ardawn House again.

Our family stayed in two rooms at Ardawn House last June. The rooms were tastefully decorated and contained everything we could want or need for our stay. The breakfast was good and we were also able to walk to center of Galway in about 15-20 minutes with a ten and eleven-year-old. Dave, the friendly owner, also helped us determine the best route to get to Knock, among other locations. I appreciated the fact that Ardawn is outside of the city center that it's relatively quiet but close enough that we could walk. There are cars that pass outside the inn but it wasn't enough noise to keep us up (and I'm a light sleeper). We'd definitely stay here again!

This is a charming guest house about 10 minute-walk from the center of Galway. The owners are very helpful. The place is immaculate and offers a nice are to sit and read. The room is nice decorated, but the shower is too small.
