Almara house was our second last stay in our journey around Ireland. Marie and Matthew were beyond amazing as was their delish breakfast. The room was gorgeous and very clean. Loved our stay and would highly recommend staying here.

My son and I stayed one night at Almara House. Our room was very clean and up-dated. Matt and Marie were the cutest! Breakfast was delicious and presented ever so fancy! We were treated very well! They were very helpful with their knowledge of the local areas and travel ideas and destinations.

Had a nice stay. Hosts we're very friendly and food was very tasty. Would recommend but call ahead to get a room that fits your needs. We we're on third floor which isn't an issue for us but may be for someone who has bad knees or for tall people as the ceilings are sloped. We took the bus to the city and the stop is right out the driveway. Would stay again!

Marie and Matthew epitomize Irish hospitality! Marie greeted us as if we were family. She was engaging and gave us great recommendations for dining and pubs. Their B&B is beautifully decorated with special attention to details ... phone charging stations in the bedrooms, those awesome stemmed glasses (can we purchase them!) and the breakfast presentation. Matthew seemed genuinely in his element serving breakfast. He was so attentive and kind to our adult disabled son, which of course, captured my heart! Our rooms were on the top floor and very spacious. Although it is not walking distance to Galway, our taxi arrived very quickly and getting a return taxi from Quay Street is easy. This was our second visit to Ireland but our first experience booking with Ireland B&Bs. Marie & Matthew at Almara House gave our family a warm and inviting welcome to Galway, but most importantly, they gave us a precious memory!!
