We are just finishing up our trip through Ireland. We had booked a mixture of hotels and B&Bs. I was starting to have to apologize to my husband for the B&Bs as they were quite below par despite great reviews. I think in a lot of cases the people running them are lovely, the accommodation not so much. This was...

Petra House has it all. The rooms are beautifully appointed -- and have everything that you might want. The breakfast is made-to-order, sumptuous and locally sourced. On top of all that -- it's easily walkable from the bus station and downtown (but without the city noise.) All in all A+

Petra House is an absolutely lovely B&B. We stayed here last weekend (Aug 2016) as we were in Galway for a party. It's a pity we could only stay one night - it's clean, the rooms are lovely, the bed is comfy and the owner is very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast is amazing :-) When we are back in...

Petra House was a wonderful place to stay! We only stayed one night, but we would have loved to stay longer. It was very close to town and was an easy walk. The room was beautiful and everything you could think of was in the room. Very clean and well appointed! Frank and Joan were wonderful people. They made you...

Frank and Joan were incredible hosts. Their B&B is beautiful and well kept, and our room was one of the best we've experienced. It looked out on the most colorful garden. Breakfast was delicious and served in an elegant but comfortable dining room filled with natural light. It's also located close enough to walk anywhere in Galway. When our luggage...

Sorry to say that we could only stay one night. This is an awesome b&b. The owners are fantastic and serve a wonderful breakfast. The place is decorated beautifully and is spotless. Good recommendation for dinner. Highly recommend this place. Hope to be able to return someday.

Frank was warm caring funny and an absolute joy to stay with. He always asked what we had planned during breakfast and if he could help plan anything for us. Definitely take him up on the Cliffs of Moher tour and the Aran Island tours, top notch all of it. Now how do you even do justice to breakfast....huge portions...

We stayed here for only one night as we started our transition from country life Ireland to city life Ireland. This Bed and Breakfast is wonderful. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. You can tell that this is a very well maintained place. Our room looked out over a beautiful garden in the back yard which was so much...

Just come back from spending our second visit with Frank and Joan who take care of Petra House. Title says it all.

Petra House is in an excellent location in Galway. It is within walking distance (about 20 minutes) of the downtown/pedestrian area where all the shops and restaurants are located. It is also close to the bus station where tours leave. Frank and Joan were excellent hosts and we found them to be very friendly and helpful. The food was great!...
