Positive Reviews

A short stroll from the beach and amenities.

The guest house is a short walk away from the beach and the promenade which guests described as being very convenient. Many also found it handy having restaurants, pubs and a supermarket within walking distance of their accommodation.

Well-equipped rooms with picturesque views.

Many of the rooms look out onto Galway Bay and guests said that they thoroughly enjoyed the sea views from their large bay windows. The rooms are equipped with a wide range of mod-cons such as jet-tubs, DVD players and cable televisions which prompted many to conclude that they had everything they needed for a comfortable stay.

Pleasant places to relax and unwind.

Guests enjoyed spending time on the balcony where they were able to enjoy their breakfasts during finer weather as well as take in the scenic views. In the evenings, many chose to sit in the cosy and comfortable lounge where they could leaf through the collection of books or simply relax and admire the sunsets over the bay.

Negative Reviews

A bit of a trek into town.

The guest house is not within walking distance of the town centre a and quite a few guests found it rather inconvenient having to either get the bus or drive to the centre of Galway.

Internet connection issues.

Guests who wanted to connect to the Internet from their rooms said that they experienced difficulties due to the rather weak and intermittent Wi-Fi signal.

Plumbing issues.

Guests said that they found showering at the guest house rather cumbersome due to the low water pressure whilst others mentioned that they had to struggle to adjust the right temperature. The plumbing were also said to be rather noisy as guests were able to hear water running from adjoining rooms.
