“Great B&B walking distance to downtown attractions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2011

My girlfriend and I stayed here and it was fantastic. Free parking, great rooms with ensuite bathrooms, 24 hour coffee, tea, hot chocolate, great breakfast in the morning and wi-fi. The owners are friendly and have great advice on anywhere you want to go in the city or in the surrounding areas. I highly recommend staying here to anyone of all ages.

A couple of the girls and I headed to the races for a few nights in July 2011. The room was immaculate and really nicely decorated. The beds were so comfy we found it hard to get out of them in the morning... although it probably had a lot to do with being out till all hours the night before! Our room was on the top floor, looking onto the greyhound track next door. Some might say that it's noisy, but we had no problems with noise at all. The owners are so lovely and friendly, extremely accommodating to any special requests and gave us the warmest of welcomes into their home. Breakfast was just delicious with a wide choice and variety. I found the scrambled eggs just magnificent! All in all we had an amazing few days, and staying at Ardawn House was just one of the reasons we'll be back to the Galway Races again in the future!

Hosts Mike & Breda were very friendly & accomodating.
Breakfasts were excellent.
Room very small . Made use of the livingroom common area.
Close to downtown Galway.
Went to the greyhound races next door to B & B

Room Tip: Room was very small but clean & bed very comfortable

This is a lovely Bed and Breakfast within walking distance to main shopping and attractions in Galway. Our rooms were cozy (very comfortable beds) with insuite bathrooms. It is right next door to a dog racing track which was very interesting, but we didn't even know the racetrack was there until the second night. We stayed on the weekend when the races were going on, but never heard a sound from the track. Very quiet and peacful place. Breakfast was made to order and delicious with many options. Our hosts were very helpful with recommendations and will help organize tours to places of interest in the area at your request.
We were traveling with another couple and we were both pleased with the amenities, friendliness, and graciousness of our hosts.

I just spent three days at Breda and Mike's with members of my hockey team.
I cannot say enough good things about Breda's hospitality. Mike was away so
missed seeing him. The rooms were roomy, bright and clean. The breakfasts
were delicious and cooked to order and Breda couldn't do enough for our team;
organising a laundry service, helping us get taxis and being on call 24 hrs to
answer questions and give advice. If I ever have the opportunity to be back in
Galway would be more than happy to stay at Ardawn House again.
