Lovely little cottage, clean and tidy welcoming and within walking distance to town. Warning for those who don't like small or are claustrophobic or are on the larger side like myself don't take room 2. I had to squeeze through the shower doors we guess it was some thing like 3'x3'. Beyond that though Stella is a wonderful helpful and...

Stella and Liam were perfect hosts. They were so nice and so very Irish that they made us feel like we were at home. They served a great breakfast and always left full. Even better it is served in a very nice sun room, which added to the ambiance. Room was decent size and bathroom, while small, was actually larger...

Though the room was small, our experience more than made up for it! Consilio is about a 10 minute walk from the center of Galway, which was ideal for a girls' night out! Our hosts were lovely, immediately drawing us into conversation upon arrival. Breakfast was delicious, and was served in a beautiful breakfast room to the side of the...

The bathrooms are so tiny but the personality of the hostess/owner, Stella, more than makes up for that. Stella is so warm and welcoming that you don't want to leave her BnB. You don't even want to go sightseeing. She tells the most amazing stories and makes you feel as though you have known her a lifetime.

The B&B itself is very basic (tiny rooms and bathrooms, but very clean). However, Stella went out of her way to make our stay more enjoyable. She cooked us a delicious breakfast and gave us great recommendations to make the most of our time in Galway. She even offered to mail our previous B&B owner our voucher when we forgot...
