We were only planning to stay one night and check out Galway in one day but enjoyed the location and our host that we stayed two nights. Our room looked out over the garden and the river and were minutes walk from the downtown restaurants and activities. Our room had two beds in it and was typical for the Irish...

We drove to Galway and found ourselves looking for a B&B for the night. Luckily we had our Lonely Planet guide and one of their recommended stays was at St Martin's B&B. Specifically Mary will take care of you and she did! She welcomed us in and offered tea (which was delicious) and was a wonderful host introducing us to...

Went to check room availability for the night but the hostess was unpleasant. The room was small and overpriced, and with the welcoming warning we got " are you here just to ask questions?" We have decided we would rather spend our money elsewhere. She might have had a bad day, who knows, but it's no way to greet your...

My girlfriend and I stayed on Monday night. Mary and her husband are lovely hosts and we were treated to a huge pot of tea and loads of bread and biscuits in the back garden when we arrived. There's a carpark at the Cathedral literally a two minute walk away where you can park up all day for only €4...

Great room, location and the hospitality is so good that we stayed an extra night. We enjoyed the breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice and bacon drizzled in honey. Tea and coffee in the afternoon and after spending a day at the windy and cold Aran island a hot water bottle was waiting for us in bed.

A friend and I visited Galway in January 2014 and stayed at St. Martin's Bed and Breakfast for one night. The host was very friendly and greeted us with tea and toast. Our room was perfect, and the breakfast room overlooks a wonderful garden (great bird-watching!). And the full Irish breakfast was top-notch. The B&B is walking distance from "downtown...

I'm very glad Lonely Planet recommends St. Martin's, because that's how we discovered this comfortable little place. Mary and her husband are very kind and welcoming. We just showed up without a reservation (In January - I wouldn't recommend this is the busy season) and they had a cute, clean room ready for us. The room wasn't huge, but I...

We did not have reservations and needed two rooms for 3 of us for one night, and didn't get there until 5pm. What a wonderful surprise it was to meet Mary! She was so wonderful to us, I had my twin daughters with me for their 30th birthday. We had such a great experience we stayed two nights. I can't...

Mary and her husband do a very good job. On arrival, we were treated to a cup of tea/coffee and wheaten bread, and she took out the Lonely Planet's guide to Ireland and opened it on the Galway pages for us, and gave us plenty of local knowledge. Where else would they do that for you? The rooms and beds...

My boyfriend and I stayed at St. Martins in late May. We didnt have reservations but she had room for us. Mary was the most gracious host. Rooms were comfortable and a good price. Parking is a little tricky but the B&B is in the perfect locations to stroll into town. Overall lovely place.
