Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our last two nights in Ireland were spent at the Marless House in Galway, and we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice! Our hosts, Mary and Tom, were very friendly, gracious, and extremely helpful. Their home is beautiful, and our room had every amenity you could need or want. There is a lovely living room on the first floor for guests, and Tom turned on the fireplace, which was a treat on the cold nights we were there. The breakfast that was served was incredible - and so delicious. Besides an array of items on the buffet, you have an extensive menu of breakfast items to choose from - all wonderful and made to order. We drove to dinner and to the city centre in the evening, all a short drive, and although there are definitely places you could walk to, it was too cold for us! Note: When I first checked on Trip Advisor, it showed no availability for the dates we needed, but I reached out directly to Mary via the Marless House website, and she told me there was availability - so I would recommend going that route if you want to make a reservation. If your trip includes a stop in Galway, I would highly recommend the Marless House B&B.

We stayed at the Marless House a year ago. Mary was super accommodating as we arrived after flying all night from the States. She fed us a delicious breakfast and let us into the room to nap before we headed out to see the sights and sounds of Galway. You really feel like a cherished guest/family member when you stay here. We were lucky enough to meet her sweet grandson when she was in her kitchen giving us detailed driving instructions on how to reach our next destination. Wonderful family, wonderful stay....wonderful memories for us of our first night in Ireland. A belated thanks to Mary!

Great location just a minute from ocean promenade. Easy acces by car to parking lot in west galway or there are buses Mary and Tom are your perfect hosts Full of suggestions and good cheer. Very typical guest house rooms that are modern and very clean Lovely main floor salon to sit and watch tenor read. Parking in front. Breakfast is made to order , so you can gave french toast or eggs however you like No rush at breakfast as the dining room is amenable to chat with others Extremely good choice of location if u dont want the hustle and hassle of downtown and enjoy a quiet lodge!!!

I can't say enough good things about our time at Marless House. Mary and Tom are thoughtful and available hosts. They go above and beyond by providing excellent tips of what to see in the area, an outstanding breakfast, and beautiful, spacious and clean rooms. It felt like home, not like I was a tourist in their home. If you have concerns about being on the outskirts of Galway, no need to worry. Bus transportation is on a block away and the quietness and waterside location outside of the city added to the pleasure of our visit. Mary also accommodated my friend's need of quiet space early in the morning in the guest living room. Make Marless House one of your stops. You will be glad you did.

My husband and I had stayed with Mary and Tom before so we knew what to expect. We were not disappointed! From the clean rooms and comfortable beds, to Mary’s breakfasts, you will be charmed. Nothing is too much trouble for them. We were lucky to be there while the family was in town for a celebration and got to meet the grandchildren. Overall, our four night stay was a true pleasure and we hope to be back again!

My cousin and I enjoyed our stay in Mary's comfortable house in Salthill. My room was so pretty it was a delight to sleep in it. Mary provides tea/coffee and biscuits for guests each afternoon. We thought this was a lovely touch as it allowed you to meet and talk to people from around the world. The breakfasts were very good and Mary was extremely helpful writing out directions for our trip to the Cliffs of Moher. It was a pleasant walk along the bay to find somewhere to eat in the evening. One of the best things was that Mary left the heating on at night so you could get your washing dry. Many other place switch it off after a few hours so your things are still wet in the morning. We would thoroughly recommend this B and B to others as it was excellent value for the price.

Pretty bedrooms, comfortable beds, delicious breakfasts. It felt so homey and was spotless. Mary makes you feel right at home and, if you ask, freely shares advice on where to go and what to see along with her detailed maps.

Yes, people rave about Marless House and their time spent there. It is most deserved and it is due not only to its superb location and well kept rooms but it is Mary, the hostess, who really shines as an amazing hostess. We did not spend nearly enough time in Galway and would most definitely stay again.

Myself and my wife stayed at Marless House while attending a wedding in the Salthill Hotel. When we arrived on the Friday night Mary was on hand with a pot of tea and some biccies. The bedroom was large and the bed was confortable. Breakfast was absolutely brilliant, plenty of variety and Mary cooked us a delicious hot breakfast. I would highly recommend Marless House to anyone looking to stay in Galway. Only a short walk down to the beautiful prom in Salthill too!

With the nicest intentions, I have to say this is like staying at Grandma's House. The rooms are large & very clean, the bed was among the most comfortable we had during our 3-week journey. The breakfast buffet was very nicely presented; you can also order off a menu. Mary is a very sweet hostess.
