Very warm welcome with a cup of tea and a piece of wonderful carrot cake. We had a room with a queen size bed but the bathroom was very small and the water pressure was very weak. The breakfast room was also a bit crowded. We understand that the couple running the place took it over as a going concern and have only been open for 12 months. It is very convenient for the centre of Galway which is only 5 - 10 minutes walk away.

Dear Derek, Hi, and thank you very much for your recent review and for sharing your experience for others to enjoy; although we were saddened we dropped by one star, we are sure that you to come back to us for a future visit. We will try extra hard to ensure you had a flawless stay, and we appreciate you taking the time to share your recent stay with us here in Petra House B&B. Sometimes our menu system does not work out 100%, and our dining room area gets a bit crowded, so we are sorry for this. The water pressure gets tested sometimes, but things we are currently working on fixing at the moment in time. We are glad our location and, hopefully, our breakfasts were up to your satisfaction. We would love the opportunity to invite you back for a future stay with us here in Petra House B&B, and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your vacation. Warmest Regards, and we thank you again,

Dear LeehQ4289LE Hi again, and thank you so so much for your lovely review. I have already passed on the information to Amy (who read the review before me), and she was, as we say in Ireland, over the moon with joy, and she told me if only we could have done more for you and your family. We appreciate you sharing your experience so other potential visitors can experience the same enjoyment spent at Petra House B&B. We hope you got home safe and enjoyed the rest of your vacation, and maybe our paths may cross again in the future. Thank you again for staying with us here in Petra House B&B. Best Regards,

Our stay at Petra House in Galway was wonderful! We highly recommend choosing this B&B as a place to stay. Paul and Amy were excellent hosts who were attentive and very helpful. Our room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was served each morning with smile and helpful suggestions for our day's plans. It was a short 10 minute walk to downtown, close enough to easily get to but out of the crowded and noisy downtown area. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

The room was very comfortable, and well decorated. The two owners were very outgoing and answered all my questions about Galway. Their help was very important as I was traveling alone at this time. The breakfast was wonderful, the best I've had in Ireland. They gave you the menu the night before and there were may options, including vegetarian. But I'll remember the owners and staff, they felt like old friends at the end of my stay. They were so very helpful and gracious!

We had a wonderful stay at Petra House B&B! Paul and Amy are SO nice and welcoming - and their attention to each guest’s needs is so thoughtful! The rooms are very comfortable, and the breakfast each morning is terrific! We had a nice walk to the city center last night for dinner, and then back again after. So pleasant and easy! We would love to stay here again - we highly recommend Petra B&B if you’re staying in Galway! Thank you Paul and Amy!
