Just back home after my 2nd stay at Marian Lodge. As always, Celine goes out of her way to welcome you. Her breakfast is excellent and includes home made brown bread. My room was cozy and spotless.

Only staying the one night on a cycling trip up Ireland. Good size room and comfortable bed. Celine was friendly and welcoming and due to the inclement weather before arrival, she went out of her way to help, washing and drying kit and making us welcome. Great stay.

Very comfortable. Right on bus lines and tours picked up at the door. Conveniently located between Galway and the Prom. View of the bay with the beach down the road. Celine is a fine host and provides a great Irish breakfast. She is very accommodating. Enjoyed our stay.

Very nice place to stay, very warm welcome with tea and biscuits. We stayed in a lovely room and we would certainly recommend this Bed and Breakfast! The location was also nice, not far from the beach or the city center.
