This place is wonderful- within walking distance to an amazing shopping area and quaint restaurants. The b and b offers delicious breakfasts. The room we stayed in was neat and clean as was the private bathroom. The folks working there are so sweet and accommodating. I became especially fond of Wayne the resident cat who kept me company in the...

We enjoyed our stay here on Oct. 21. The staff was very nice and gave us a map and showed us good places to eat and where to go downtown Galway. We walked down to the strip of Galway and had a great time down there. Felt very safe walking at night from the B&B. The bed was a little...

Mum and I stayed in Galway for two nights and we needed a convenient location within walking distance to both bus stations, Shop Street and Spanish Arch. We chose according the lovely photo College Crest had on booking.com and the incredibly good value for such a good location. We arrived after 11pm and Helen, the owner, stayed up to greet...

The location is absolutely perfect, nice neighbourhood, quiet, but very close to the center of the city. The rooms are neat, they're cleaned every day, the house itself is beautiful. The full irish breakfast was amazing, and the lovely ladies even made other breakfasts if you desired something else, like pancakes. The service was very pleasant and Helen answered all...

This B&B has almost all that one expects from a B&B. Spacious parking, neat rooms, close to the city center, Wi-Fi and of course breakfast. Though the breakfast could be slightly better as the bacon was totally under cooked. The staff was helpful with the directions and very friendly. All in all recommend this place for the location and rooms.

We stayed for one night here on our travels. It's a no frills accommodation, very basic but location is great for walking into the city and breakfast was good and staff friendly. Also has onsite parking which is helpful if your driving around.

We stayed here for one night to visit Galway & Connemara. The host was very friendly, the room was clean and the B&B looked exactly like you would picture a B&B. The breakfast was amazing! It was a little bit expensive but all Irish hotels and B&Bs are and it was definitely worth the money. Would definitely recommend!

Just go somewhere else - this exhibits all that is greedy in the Irish B&B scene. Walls as thin as paper. Hardly room to swing a cat. So much for the cead mile failte they all talk about in Ireland .. this woman just wants as much money as she can get out of you.

We loved loved loved this B&B! First, Galway is amazing and a place everyone should visit we really enjoyed our time here.
