Got here after 9. Keys and instructions were waiting on my arrival. Huge comfortable room, parking, good breakfast in the morning, was based in the hospital for a day so only had a 5 minute walk there and is only a ten min walk from city centre. I'll be back!

Free, secure, off-street parking, delicious breakfast options, and perfect location to everything fun in Galway! Room was comfortable, bathroom was clean, and having a fridge in-room was so convenient. The owners and staff were very helpful and friendly! We were in town for Halloween and the Parade so rates were very reasonably priced compared to other B & B's and...

We booked three nights in Desota House. It was simply awful. We lasted one night and got out as fast as we could. Our email contact was very promising so we were quite sure that it would go well. The photos on the site look fine, I"m sure you'll agree. Not luxury, but fine. We were greeted by a somewhat...

Rooms are clean and basic with comfortable beds and pillows, parking in the back so not on street and a bit safer, nice hot shower, and heat worked in room well for chilly Irish evening. Price was reasonable and helpful with directions. The breakfast the next morning was good and served with a cheery attentive young lady.

This was our first time staying at a B & B so we were not sure what to expect. We found it to be very nice and clean. The Inn Keeper, Debra was as sweet and accommodating as she could be. The breakfast was outstanding! Our only complaint was having to use the small pool next door.

We were lucky to get this room during the Galway races and ladies night. Pricey but clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were great and the staff friendly and welcoming and great with directions! Great location about a 10-15 minute walk into the centre. Ample parking and free wifi.

Very impressed by the professionalism of the staff and the standards of this B7B, they went the extra mile in everything as far as we were concerned. The room was spacious and clean, the bed was very comfortable after a days driving it was wondeful, good shower - so important and it was a big shower! Breakfast was a winner,...

Spent three nights at this bed and breakfast and have no negative comments. Felt very welcoming, staff were very friendly and helpful with our city tours, room was very clean and comfortable and the food was fantastic with numerous choices for breakfast. Would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a comfortable and affordable stay in Galway. Will definitely return...

I think the title says it all. The water in the tiny bathroom was too cold to have a proper wash. The bedroom itself was very cramped and small and made us feel claustrophobic. The service of the staff left a lot to be desired. It was not worth the money and we were left disappointed by the whole experience
