We had a great visit to Abacus Guesthouse. Breege and Louise were absolutely fantastic. Louise went out of her way to make us feel at home- whether it was setting up a dinner table for us when we ordered take out food, or watching our kids while we went pubbing in Galway. The rooms were spacious and clean; and tastefully...

Absolutely outstanding B&B experience at Abacus. We had a gorgeous and spacious room--tasteful, beautifully furnished, and sparkling clean. The ensuite was a treat with a roomy shower and lots of hot water (nothing like the cramped after-thought facilities you find in most B&Bs). The high-quality rooms alone are reason enough to book here...but you'll also find the most helpful, friendly,...

Breege is a very nice host, very welcoming. The B&B is so clean, breakfast are cooked to order with fresh food. It is 5min drive or 20min walk from the City center an the host will have good advices to visit the city. I strongly recommend this B&B Seb

The Abacus is a nice, relatively inexpensive BnB in Galway. We stayed for two nights in mid-2014 and had no complaints. Breege, the lady that runs the place, is very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and breakfast was good (except for the coffee, which tasted like hot water). It is about a 30-minute walk to Galway City Center,...

The Abacus Guesthouse is a wonderful Bed and Breakfast which I can highly recommend. The rooms are comfortable and clean with super high-pressure showers. Breakfast is delicious and the O'Shaughnessys are always very friendly and absolutely helpful if you have any questions. If you want to book any trips, Breege and her family are happy to organize this for you...

We were very happy with our stay. Louise greeted us and made us feel right at home. We shortly met her parents Breege and Noel. What a lovely family. The room was very quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was all you could hope for. We took the bus into Galway. Probably the best way to travel into the city. There is...

My wife and I only stayed for one night. The staff were extremely kind people and the room was wonderful. We paid €75 for the one night. If we ever travel pass through again, we will definitely stay again.

We were greeted by Louise who was very kind and helpful in making sure we had everything we needed, suggesting restaurants and calling a taxi for us to go into the city centre. The room itself had a lot of what I love in a room: -spotlessly clean (great for people with allergies), -crisp and clean bed linen and towels...
