Reviewed 12 September 2011

Breda & Mike have a beautiful B&B five minutes walking from Galway centre. Ready with any advice on how to get around and where to eat out. The room was very tidy, with a large enough double bed. A very expansive breakfast buffet plus menu. Highly recommended.

Mike and Breda are very hospitable and nice. The room was nice, and the breakfast was one of the best of our trip. The B&B is located near the Shop Street area - a quick 10 minute walk. I highly recommend this establishment to anyone.

On a busy street, but close to downtown. Mike and Breda make the place; for my wife an I, the experience with the owner/operator is paramount. Mike and Breda went out of their way to be friendly, offer suggestions, etc. Rooms do vary in size, so try for one of the larger ones (like #9 at the top of the stairs ... good size, and above the street). Clean, good breakfasts, wonderful hosts; I would go back without hesitation.

Room Tip: Try to get #9

My husband and I traveled with our adult son for 2weeks, staying mostly at B&Bs recommended by Rick Steves. We would definitely recommend Ardawn House. Mike and Breda are wonderful hosts and we felt right at home. We had a large room, which was very comfortable and the full Irish breakfast was fabulous. Mike uses only local products and everything was fresh and delicious. This was a good central location for all of our side trips, Connemara/Mayo, Aran Islands, and an easy walk into town for shopping, local restaurants and pubs. Good value. The parking is limited but free and it is next to the Greyhound Stadium which is a busy place on the weekends.

Room Tip: Our triple room faced the Greyhound Stadium which some may find noisy on the weekend.
