Stayed for 3 nights in downstairs room. Room was clean and good size although slight smell of cigarettes. Great location for exploring the city. Jim and staff were very friendly and provide a good breakfast. Would stay again if we were visiting Galway.

My boyfriend and I had a great stay at Dun Aoibhinn House in December 2011. Jim, the owner, has been doing lots of renovations on the place, bringing the place up to date. We stayed on the ground floor in a very clean and modern room- flat screen TV, updated bathroom (I am a real stickler for a clean bathroom...

I had a bad experience I checked in after 10 on a Sunday night. I was told breakfast will start at 08:30. I had an appointment at 08:15 the following morning. I had to ask if it would be possible to help myself to some cereal. I was again told that 08:15 would be the earliest possible time for the...

Jim was friendly. We hadnt read any review just picked it out of the blue. He has spent heaps of money upgrading and so thos previous reviews from a few years ago may have been correct but things have changed. A big plasma TV and fridge in your room. He offered to dry clothes we had washed. Jim couldn't do...

Located in a quiet neighborhood a pleasant short walk to city center. James is very friendly and helpful. We showed up without reservations having found it in the Lonely Planet Guide.

I booked a room here for two nights for 2 adults - my Mother and I. I had to pre-pay the entire cost of the room before arrival which seemed odd but we were pressed for time to make other arrangements. We arrived and I believe we were the only people staying at this place. The host was odd and...

I booked the family room with a double bed and a bunk bed for myself, my sister and boyfriend after reading good reviews on Tripadvisor. The B&B is located about 10 minutes walk from Shop Street in Galway, which was the main reason I thought it sounded great. The free pick-up from train/bus station is a plus, and when, in...
