Lovely section of town. Scenic walk into Galway. Accommodations were nice and Nora was warm and informative. She really helped us plan out some of our best sites. Her breakfast was delicious. Her scones are not to be missed.

We arrived tired and were greeted with a beaming smile, scones & a pit of tea. Nola made us feel so welcome. She gave us maps and directions into town and suggestions of what to see and do. Our room is very comfortable with all the amenities you could hope for. Nola brought us the makings of tea and some...

Saint Kieran's B&B is located in the beautiful Salthill neighborhood, which overlooks Galway Bay. The B&B is a pretty 30 minute walk or quick cab ride away from the city center. The host is absolutely wonderful. Couldn't ask for better hospitality.

We enjoyed our stay at this B&B - Nora who runs it is vibrant, caring and makes the best Coffee! We arrived in the afternoon and she went out of her way to give us a tray of muffins w/jam and coffee or tea. The location is perfect for nice walks to the town and Galway is about a 30...

The place is about 30 minute walk from the inner Galway City along the coast and pier. The place was nice and clean but a little tired. All of this was blown away however by the quality of our host. We received tea upon arrival, we had tea after our day in town and the food was great. Nora went...

We stayed here two nights and we wish we had the time to stay longer! Nora is a wonderful cook and made my eggs just how I like them along with the rest of my hearty Irish breakfast. The rooms are spacious and clean with easy TV and internet access. The B&B is located walking distance to the beach and...

Call ahead to get good directions as the Garmin got us near, but needed local assistance to find the house (that and a local soccer/football game with people parking ALL OVER made it hard to see the sign). Nice house, good breakfast, and Mrs O'Malley is a sweet lady.

This was the first B&B we stayed at in Ireland, and Norma was exceptional at making us feel welcome. Since we weren't seasoned travellers we asked her all sorts of dumb questions (like when we should tip and what is brown sauce), to which she answered so patiently and kindly. She was lovely representative of Irish hospitality.

What can I say? The woman who runs this B&B is so cute. Very nice lady and she truly does welcome her guests with coffee or tea and little baked goods on arrival. Warning: the house is somewhat smokey so keep that in mind if that bothers you. If it does not, then you must stay here! The location is...

Excellent location - 5 minute walk to the Promenade with its beach, bars, restaurants, and amusements. 5 minute walk to bus stop and small grocery store. Doable walk into Galway. Clean, comfortable rooms. Excellent Irish breakfast. Nora Omalley runs a wonderful B & B.
