This spotlessly clean and elegant inn is run by some of the friendliest people we met in Ireland. The breakfasts were wonderful and the personal touch by the innkeeper is exemplary. The very best place we stayed on our two week trip through Ireland!!!

Petra House was our first stop after flying all night and then driving from Dublin. Frank and Joan welcomed us in and showed us our room and after a brief rest Frank gave us some ideas as to where to go in Galway. The location is perfect, as it was a short and very nice walk into the city. Our...

I cannot recommend Petra House more highly. My mother and I stayed a full week in Galway. It was a brilliant holiday, made all the more enjoyable by our accommodation. Joan and Frank are very warm, friendly and caring hosts who really go the extra mile to make sure your stay is comfortable. There are just lots of little extras...

A friend's parents recommended Petra House to us as the cleanest, friendliest B&B in Galway. They were right - we could not have had a better stay! Frank is the most welcoming host, a true gentleman. Our room was well kept and quiet, hot shower, and a delicious breakfast. We stayed for two nights and wish it could have been...

I am EXTREMELY picky about the cleanliness of places I stay and Petra House was spotless! The bed, linens, bathroom were all very, very clean! Breakfast was very nice as well. Owner was friendly and helpful. Very nice to have off street parking so close to city center. Easy walk to all the shops and restaurants.

The Petra House was a wonderful stay everything from the location, comfortable beds, Joan and Frank, our room to the delicious breakfast. We found the Petra House to have the best room and Joan and Frank were the most personable hosts out of our trip to Ireland. The location was a much easier drive versus driving into the city center...

Thank you Frank and Joan for being such gracious hosts on Saturday October 29, 2016. We loved our spacious room (#1) which had a big Queen bed and 2 single beds. Plenty of room for me and my hubby. Very, very clean and tidy which is very important to us. Loved the soft linen white sheets. The bathroom was a...
