Maureen is a sweet Hostess. Our room was cozy and clean. Very good Irish breakfast and porridge. Helpful when we needed to find a place to have laundry done.

The finest thing of our stay here was the great kindness of Maureen, the owner of the B&B. The B&B position is very great, it is near Salthill beaches, with wonderful views of the sunset on Galway Bay, and not so far to the city centre. Our room was very fine and bright with tea and coffea facility to start...

We spent three nights at the Dormers in Salthill. We were initially worried about being outside of Galway proper, but this worked out perfectly.

A cosy B&B ten minutes' walk from downtowny Galway, conveniently close to Salthill seaside resort (easy to reach on foot). Each room has its own colour and bedclothes are matching. Ms. Tarpey is very nice and her husband will make your stay more colourful thanks to his funny tales of his working experience in the Middle East. Strongly reccomended!

Overall, a very nice bed & breakfast - great breakfast every morning, clean and comfortable rooms and a great location. No phones in the rooms and no internet. Our only comment - the owner, while nice enough to us, did not make us feel terribly welcome.

Older place run by an older woman who is super. Walk to the water and walk to the Galway pedestrian area, so the location is perfect. Great breakfast and good parking
