Louise was fantastic! The house is very clean, offered breakfast, individual door locks, and is located in a great location! Louise was very kind offering dinner recommendations and directions to get around Galway. Abacus house is walking distance from city centre if you don’t mind walking 25 minutes. It is close to the bus station and has parking. Breakfast was small but great! Louise was present to make sure your toast and tea/coffee are fresh. I would absolutely recommend her property.
A bit disappointed - the B&B was in a fairly convenient location (outside Galway, but only a minutes walk to a bus stop with routes into the city) and the host Louise was very welcoming. The room however was basic - small, tired decor, TV that had poor reception, kettle that took over 5 minutes to boil and no toiletries provided. The breakfast was cooked to order but was very average. We stayed in a couple of lovely B&Bs in Ireland and this one was a bit of a let down.
I live locally and regularly book this b and b when I have family visiting from Cork. They love it and find it very comfortable . I offered to book them into a hotel but they asked me to rebook here as they always have a lovely stay
The owner and her daughter were so nice welcoming us to the guest house, and made sure we had all the information we might need even for parts of our trip after we left their B&B. The breakfast was also excellent - the best Full Irish I had while in Ireland! The location is about a 30 minute walk to central Galway, with a bus line nearby.
We really enjoyed our time here. The room was very clean, spacious, and beautiful. Breakfast was lovely as well, with many options. Julia was very helpful and kind, answering any questions we may have. Only thing is that toiletries are NOT provided, so make sure you bring your own shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, etc. Other than that, the stay was great. Definitely recommend!
I’m so pleased my friends and I popped into this quaint B & B when we visited Galway. Julia was an exceptional host, and the rooms were lovely and clean. Breakfast was abundant and delicious and, once again, the service was exceptional. Highly recommended! Ooh, and there’s a lovely walk into the town centre that goes along the river near the railroad tracks. Gorgeous!
The place was very clean, comfortable beds, fabulous shower with great water pressure (the best we’ve experienced throughout our travels here in Ireland) and a wonderful breakfast made to order. The hosts were lovely and very accommodating.
This is a family owned business and they work as a family to create a welcoming and pleasant stay. Louise welcomed us and provided us with wonderful helpful advice on a number of things including where to eat. Our room was extremely spacious and well appointed. We had everything we needed including tea and coffee making facilities. The beds were comfortable and the room spotlessly clean. The bathroom was well appointed but bring your own toiletries other than soap. Breakfast consisted of a lovely buffet with ample choices of fruits, cereals, pastries, scones, yoghurt etc and there’s even a microwave if you want to heat your scone or pastry. And there’s also an a la carte with all the usual offerings. Wifi is free and fast. Location is great on the road into Galway from the south but just tucked off the main road so there is no noise. There are seven rooms, five of which were full when we were here but there was never a peep to be heard from any other room so this is a very restful place. Thanks to the family for your welcome.…
Fantastic host who was welcoming and super friendly. Great spotlessly clean rooms with a freshly cooked breakfast every morning. Plenty of free car parking in a handy location. Staff provided great tips for local activities as there are tons of options in and around Galway.
The O' Shaughnessys' hospitality was fantastic. Noel helped us with a tyre issue on our rental car by pointing us to a local tyre shop, saving us much anguish and time. Breege is a great host and provided a very tasty breakfast. She gave us directions to the local bus stop ( about one block) so we could make the easy trip to downtown while leaving our car parked. The room was very homey, clean and well furnished. Wi Fi works well. Thanks again for the great stay!
