St. Anne's was a great B & B experience for us in our 17 nights driving around Ireland. After our travel plans changed, we phoned Mary to see if we could drive up from Galway and arrive one night early. She arranged that & we stayed @ St. Anne's for two nights. Our room was clean & spacious and looked out over a lovely, green landscape (photo attached). Our breakfasts were delicious. St. Anne's--close to both Tuam & Milltown--was a safe place in a bad windstorm that knocked out power in Tuam and sections of western Ireland from 9 p.m. to about 8 a.m. At breakfast the next morning, Mary adjusted by lighting candles at the table and, just as were about to sit down, the lights came back on! Mary was a warm, friendly B & B host. She heard I was hoping to meet my third cousin who lived in the area. Mary knew who she was, found her phone number and rang her for us. Wonderful! We also liked meeting Mary's husband (sorry, I forgot his name) and their two friendly dogs who welcomed us when we drove up. …
Our stay in the family suite with the four of us was great! The breakfast was fantastic! The room was clean and a good size. The town, a few minutes away, had a nice river walk and restaurant, that we all enjoyed. I would definitely come back.
Lovely place to stay in Tuam. Mary was very friendly and breakfast was excellent. Room was nice and clean. Would recommend and would love to stay again. The surrounding area was lovely and peaceful. Very easy to find from the airport.
Late in a busy day of climbing Knocknarea, sailing Killary Harbour, and visiting Cong, our navigation device chirped: “You are at your destination.” We were already 200 meters northwest of the farmhouse B&B drive, getting our first glimpse of the neighboring Quarrymount estate. We doubled back to the winding drive through trees and big flower beds to park and be greeted by Mr. Birmingham and a pair of friendly dogs. He asked about our travels and where we were from. He had lived in Chicago for a couple of years and had a sister living there still. “South Side, of course,” said he. She lives, of course, in the neighborhood where I grew up. We then trundled our bags upstairs, following Mrs. Birmingham to a large and well-appointed room (2 beds, 2 desks, an enormous wardrobe, and a drying rack in the bathroom for our clammy climbing clothes). Having gone slowly through road construction to get here, we were disinclined to dine in Tuam and happy to get her recommendation of a pub in Milltown. We slept well and woke to the only challenge: a shower preset to the roasty, toasty level, which made for a quick clean-up that left me with the rosy tone that follows a bright day in the Burren without sunscreen. In a wonderfully long breakfast talk with Mrs. Birmingham, we explored and settled our countries’ politics and economies and schools. We shared our plans for the remainder of our holiday and she told a bit about Quarrymount, which they once owned. Extensively restored by new owners, the handsome 1830s manor house is situated in a small tract of the old estate; the rest of surrounding fields are now part of the St. Anne’s farm.…
Arrived late in the day and found that the owner had one room left. Owner was very kind and cheerful. Breakfast was great and her two dogs were very friendly (huge dog fan). The rooms were a little out of date, but that added to the charm.
A very cosy farm with nice clean rooms and great breakfast. Our host went out of her way to help us arrange a birthday cake for our mum. It is located very beautifully and we drove to see the wild atlantic way eg roundstone. Very very nice. Thank you.
Lovely peaceful stay. Owners were very friendly and catered to our every need. Rooms very large, both our rooms were ensuite. Beautiful surroundings. Exactly what we were looking for. We will hopefully return some day!
The rooms are nice and large. Marry is so very down you earth and friendly.the breakfast was so good. We wished we could have stayed longer. We really enjoyed talking with Mary. she makes all feel so welcome.
My husband and I stayed with our 7 year old son for 2 nights. Mary was a wonderful host and we loved our room. The beautiful home was in a great location for exploring the area, especially Cong and Galway. And by the way, if you're looking for the best seafood chowder in the world, check out Finn's in Milltown. Thank you for your amazing hospitality, we couldn't have been more pleased!
We recently stayed with Mary and Frank's beautiful home and B&B on our first stop in an amazing adventure through Ireland and we couldn't have asked for a better welcome. The home is beautiful, the beds comfy, and the breakfast one of our favorites on the trip! Mary was so helpful when we first arrived, even though our reservation through a 3rd party hadn't gone through to them, and was able to accommodate us anyway and make sure the rest of our trip was secure as well. We felt right at home there, and were so pleased with our stay -- we hope to return one day for sure! Thank you Mary for everything and we highly recommend it to anyone traveling in the area!
