Stayed for 2 nights with my mum and sister in a triple room. It cost us euro10 by taxi to get into the city centre with local cab firm. Very quiet at night so you can get a good night's rest.

In peak season they don't include breakfast in room rate so check your booking! Breakfast is very reasonably priced so well worth getting up for.

Stayed: March 2012

We stayed at the guest house over the New Year (2011/2012). We had a very warm welcome and the staff looked after us very well! Breakfast was delicious and plenty of it!

Every area was clean and fresh, with modern decoration through out! If I return to Galway, I will definitely stay there again!

The best B and B I have been to! :)

Although the place is not that close to town, it is not that far either! Taxi cost about 8 Euro each way. The sea front is within walking distance.

Having grown up in Ireland, I have an irrational fear of B&Bs out West, but the Amber Heights is absolutely brilliant.

The welcome is warm, we'd brought our dog as prearranged without any fuss or extra charge, and the decor is about as far from B&B (in my mind) as you could get. Bright, clean, modern.
Our room wasn't yet ready (we were a bit early) but they got in touch with the cleaners to let them know we were there and offered us complimentary, freshly ground coffee while we waited (which was only about 10 minutes).

There were tons of DVDs and a player in the dining room - touches like this really make a difference if you're away from home and there's a high chance of rain.

Yes, it is a bit out from town, but you can stroll down the hill to Salthill on a nice day, or book a cab for a set fare of €8 all the way to the Spanish Arch. That's what we did, although there were buses nearby too.

There's tons of parking and it's on the right side of the city for a quick getaway into Connemara.

Now, the breakfast: I'm an Irish vegan and my husband is an American omnivore. Usually, one of us is disappointed. Not so here: tons of cereal, as well as fresh (you hear that, other breakfast establishments? None of your tinned stuff here) pineapple and melon, soya milk as well as the cow kind, and plenty of bread or toast. And crunchy peanut butter. Heaven. For my husband, there was smoked salmon and cold cuts, or the most enormous fry up I've seen in a long time. The aforementioned dog got some of the leftovers for dinner later, so it's safe to say that our whole party was happy.

We had a fabulous stay and will definitely go back when next in Galway.
