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.

We stayed at the Almara house at the end of May, and we were extremely happy with our stay. The host couple is beyond accommodating and the rooms are extremely well maintained. Definitely would recommend for anyone staying in the Galway area!

We stayed here for one night mid-May and had a great experience. We were on the third floor in the family room with three beds and a small bathroom. My fiancé was a little tall for the room at 6'1'' but he didn't seem to mind ducking his head in and out of doorways. The host(s) were great, beds were comfortable, noise level was low, and breakfast was good. No complaints! It's about a 10 minute drive from the city of Galway where all the shopping and pubs are. Definitely a nice location!

We stayed 2 nights. Lovely accommodation, great breakfast. Marie very helpful with directions. The only negative was having to carry our large suitcases up 3 flights of stairs to our third floor room.

My sister's and I spent only one night here. The host was very friendly, and although our room was in the 3rd floor. It was spacious. The breakfast was so delicious. Would stay again if in area.
