We spent two nights at the Ardawn House in August, 2011. It is a lovely place to stay. Mike was so nice to drive our car in and out out of the parking lot since we are used to driving on the right. They have hot water and a variety of teas available in the parlor in the afternoons. We... More

Most of the top rated Trip Advisor B&B’s are all located on the same street: College Road. Thankfully, we picked Ardawn House, because it was a perfect fit! This was a last minute trip; therefore, we didn’t have a lot of time to plan. Luckily, Mike and Breda were extremely helpful and knew what to recommend. They were also very... More

Breda was very accommodating and showed us promptly to our room overlooking the dog track. Breakfast the next morning in the lovely dining areas was our introduction to a full Irish and it was superb. During our stay, both... More

Owners Mike and Breda were very accommodating when our foursome arrived a little earlier than they expected. We were mostly through our vacation throughout Ireland, having stayed in B&Bs each evening, and this jewel didn't disappoint.

We immensely enjoyed our time at Ardawn House when we backpacked Ireland this past summer. The staff was very helpful in guiding us to local attractions and giving us pointers on where to go next. The property is a short walk to downtown, which was also very convenient.

We felt very welcomed at the Ardawn. The owners were friendly and helpful. Our room was neat and clean and quiet. This was our first experience with a full Irish breakfast and it did not disappoint. The options were plentiful and delicious! Downtown Galway was just a short walk away allowing us to easily tour the city on foot. Overall,... More

Off street parking, nice rooms, and a great Irish breakfast each morning. Mike and Breda were super hosts.
