Claremount House
Ranked #38 of 189 Galway B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 September 2015

We found the Claremont after discovering the other B&Bs along the promenade in Salthill to be full. We're glad they WERE full. Anna is a wonderful and accommodating host. Our room was clean, welcoming, and very comfortable. And her scones (homemade) are the best we've had.

Room Tip: Our room was on the street side; some traffic noise, but quiets down at night.

The breakfast was wonderful. The scones, toast and bread, fresh fruit, Irish breakfast, and coffee were fantastic. You should not leave hungry. The owners are a husband and wife team that owned a restaurant in the past. The husband used to cook in the restaurant, now he cooks for the B&B. The bedroom is comfortable and clean but a bit small. The bed was a bit small (for our preferences) but the mattress and pillows were comfortable. The bathroom was a decent size and very clean. The "sea view" from our window was of the parking lot, the road, some old buildings across the street (to the right) and the ocean in the distance. Although the B&B is outside the city center, the location worked out OK for us and is close to a nice seaside walk toward the city. It took us approximately 40 minutes to walk to the city center. After exploring the city for a while, we took a taxi back to the B&B for 10 Euro. The room prices are very reasonable. They do not accept credit cards.

We only stayed one night. As the photographs on the website were not a true representation of the location or standard of the property, we asked to see the bedrooms before bringing in luggage. The owner queried why we needed to see the bedrooms as we would have to pay whether we stayed or not as the booking was secured by credit card! This was extremely unprofessional and intimidating.The breakfast was mediocre and served in what doubles as a living room. Cash payment only accepted despite the credit card reservation. Very expensive for the standard provided Definitely not a four star B & B and I would definitely not recommend.

We have just completed a two week tour of ireland, and stayed in some wonderful places. In comparison, this place comes at the bottom of the list. Had it not been for my partner, I would not have spent the night there. We were met by a young girl who was totally disinterested. The shower did not function properly. The food was mediocre. Photographs of the place, and the comments we have read were not representative of our experience. The host Anne, appeared in the morning to provide a barely acceptable breakfast and to receive payment "in cash only" for a most unwelcome experience, which I certainly would not want to endure ever again. I would invite the hosts comments.

Room Tip: Do not go!

Stayed for two nights with my wife whilst visiting the area.
Warm welcome on arrival who was very helpfull through our stay, room at the rear was spacious and quiet.
Location to town centre of Salthill was approxiamately 30 minute walk (we are late 50s and fit) along the coastal walk and access by car going west and north was easy without touching the town area.
Great breakfast and would stay again.

Room Tip: Request a rear room away from the front main road
