Maureen wants nothing more than her guests to enjoy Galway! She recommended that we see Trad on the Prom, an Irish dance/song concert. It was fantastic! Also helpful with restaurant recommendations, as well as directions! We found everything very nice, only problem was that the bathroom was incredibly small! That may work for most guests, but not for 3 guests...

At this B&B you are greeted by a charming couple. Excellent location - short walk to Salthill and downtown Galway. Comfortable rooms. Great breakfast. Be sure to ask for the porridge. Would recommend staying here for a bit of Irish hospitality.

I've found this place at the last minute. Is a lovely place to spend time. Is very close to the town centre (12 minutes or less). The B&B's owner is sweet and available. Rooms are clean, comfortable and the price is very cheap. The breakfast is amazing. Rich and complete. You can see the coast from the B&B. Is a...

We stayed 2 nights and loved the convenience of walking back after dinner in old Galway. Maureen was friendly and breakfast was great. Loved her golden raisin scones. We would definitely recommend this place.

Well, first things first, I would say that the rating for this place is GOOD rather than AVERAGE, but TripAdvisor don't have that option! Okay - first impressions were not good to say the least. This place hasn't been upgraded for many a year and it was almost like stepping back in time. HOWEVER, after getting settled in, you get...

We arrived in Galway after seeing the Cliffs of Moher, earlier that day. It was terrible weather by the time we arrived in Galway. Windy, cold, misty rain & no preplaned B&B. We drove by our suggested (vouchers) B&B's & decided on the Dormers. Ms Maureen was a sweet lady & treated us like relatives. The room was a downstairs...

As usual we had nothing booked and this was the first place we found that had two double rooms available. Although the room was a little dated and the ensuite very small they were clean. The walk into town is an easy one and the beach is just around the corner. Breakfast was freshly cooked, nothing fancy. It was ok...

This B&B is within walking distance of town as well as beaches, nice room and ammenities. Would stay there again if in the Galway area, close to Cliffs of Moher and Connemara. Excellent full Irish breakfast each day. As is everywhere in Ireland, close to castles and churches to visit.
