Shanlin House is a lovely place to stay in and the hosts are very welcoming. We spent a week there and were very comfortable. The breakfast was good and the rooms were very clean . The shower was a bit too small however we had all the necessities we needed. The towels were changed daily. We recommend Shanlin House to... More

We visited Oranmore in July of this year and stayed in Shanlin House B&B. the house was beautiful, the rooms comfortable and the host was excellent! He was willing to help us out on exploring the local area and gave us some great information regarding restaurants. The breakfast was fantastic also. We have already recommended this B&B to family traveling... More

Overall our stay here was nice. The breakfast was fantastic and the host very friendly and helpful with planning our trip. The only thing preventing an excellent rating was the wifi, it didn't work half the time, and when it did it was very weak. Yes, the room and bathroom were small, but they served our purposes just fine since... More

Friendly and comfortable, great nights sleep, no noise. Irish breakfast to set you up for the day, really friendly hosts. Room and bathroom a bit small but quite adequate as a base for exploring surrounding area and Galway.

This is our first B&B stay ever, but we felt the accommodation was fantastic, bar the very small bathroom. (although as we say - it is our first so maybe all are this small). The bedroom was comfortable, the walls were not paper thin as some suggest. We had a couple with a young baby (10 week old) in the... More

I stayed here for 3 nights. Seamus and family are extremely nice and the rate was very reasonable. Everything was spotlessly clean. Bed was comfy. Room was smallish and bathroom very small. Breakfast was hearty - I love the Irish bacon, sausage and black pudding.

I am not sure how this B&B has been rated so highly. There is no denying the owner is super friendly and helpful but that doesn't make it great. This is one of those all too familiar purpose built B&Bs and cheaply built at that. The rooms are small, have only the one chair, the walls are paper thin, the... More

I was travelling on business and would normally stay in hotels but at this time of year they can be a bit on the pricey side especially in Galway so I decided to seek out a nice B&B for my two nights in Galway. From the moment I called to make my booking I was delighted with the service. They... More

“When the Irish tell you "it is five minutes walk" it is about as reliable as "just up the road", you need to ask how long is the road so when this place tells you town is a five minute walk expect twice to three times that long.”
