We stayed at this wonderful B&B during out holiday in Ireland. Mary is a fantastic hostess and her breakfasts are very hardy [you'd best be hungry!], so conveniently close to Galway for exploring the city but also close by to the countryside. The accommodations were wonderful: very comfortable beds and luxurious towels and plenty of hot water for relaxing showers!...

The accommodation is fantastic, lovely, clean and comfortable rooms with en suite bathrooms. Breakfast was delicious and there was plenty of it! The host, Mary, was brilliant, knowledgeable...

Semi-rural setting - ensuring a peacefull nights rest. Mary was a delightfull hostess and extremely accomodating. The room was very large and the bed very comfortable - and plenty of hot water - not always the case elsewhere. Overall a very nice stay and a very good value - Thanks Mary!!!

We really enjoyed our stay here and Mary was amazingly accommodating. She took great care of us and made sure we were introduced to the other guests staying there. The location was a little further out than we expected but the peace & quiet of the location was relaxing.

We found this B & B in the dark by using our GPS late one evening when we were tired, hungry and exhausted. The owner suggested a great place to eat dinner that we close and then provided a wonderful room with comfy beds. Breakfast was delicious and we were ready for another wonder day in Ireland.

Mary, the owner, is an absolute gem and was so accommodating to my two friends and I. We are young American students who prefer to avoid hostels (when possible) because they are loud, rowdy, etc. This was the perfect place to relax for a very reasonable price. As soon as we arrived, Mary gave us scones and tea, introduced us...
