This was an excellent B&B and conveniently located in Galway. This is an upscale building that was constructed to be a B&B. There was a great deal of thought put into the design and convenience for guests. We used a taxi to get into town and it was reasonably priced. Breakfast was wonderful the accommodations were high quality. Recommend without reservation.

Absolutely no complaints about Almara House. Such an upscale, nice B&B and is close to everything. Rooms are comfortable and breakfast is delicious. Would definitely recommend staying here!

First time staying at B&B's and we were so satisfied! Marie was wonderful and so helpful! Breakfast was great! Agree about the 3rd floor room...a little difficult for a 72 year old woman, but luckily had a strong son-in-law to do the heavy lifting..:-).

My husband and I booked last minute for 1 night in Galway and we are so lucky we found this place! The hosts were lovely and went above and beyond! The rooms were lovely and they had welcome tea/coffee/cookies for us. The bus stop is right near the B&B, which takes you to downtown Galway, so it was a great alternative than driving. Breakfast was great-lovely pastries, large portions. Would definitely re-book if we return.

My two daughters and I stayed one night at the Almara house at the beginning of June. I chose this B&B due to its ratings, having a room large enough for 3 adults, ensuite and proximity to downtown Galway. Our room was on the third floor and had plenty of room for the three of us. The only downfall with being on the 3rd floor and the weather being unusually hot, is that our room was very warm. This was our first B&B while in Ireland and the room was clean and beds were comfortable. We especially enjoyed the wonderful breakfast both Marie and Matthew prepared for us in the morning.
