Our family room was very cramped for a double and a single with an undersize shower room which also had the toilet. The sink was in the bedroom. Breakfast was excellent. Close to bus stop into Galway City. The house was in a cul-de-sac of what seemed to be all B&Bs

Spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable - what more could you ask for? Accomodation in Galway City is notoriously expensive and this is as close to a bargain as I've found on all my trips there. Our small-ish room had its own sink and shared use of an immaculate bathroom. A bus from the city centre took 10 minutes and cost €1.60, a taxi home after a night of good craic in town cost €10.50. Breakfast had an excellent selection of cereals, fruit, teas and muesli bars and the cooked component was simple but expertly executed.
