Maureen was very nice and welcoming. The location is great to walk to Salt Hill!

Great location - Walking distance to both the Salt Hill district and the Quay Street. There is a bay just right down the street, with a nice little beach, as well. The hostess was friendly, and let us check-in early, upon our arrival. The house was older, but the rooms were clean. The bathroom was the smallest we encountered from our 3 different B&B stays. The shower was a very tight squeeze, and low pressure. She did accommodate the heat wave with a fan, which was much needed. Overall, our stay was pleasant.

We had a one night stay with Maureen. We were late getting there, but had read about giving notice. We did not have cell service so we emailed using wifi the night before. We didn't hear back from her, so we just got there as soon as we could. She was not concerned at the late arrival and did not read the email but said no worries! The room was fine for us coming in and sleeping. The shower was a bit small but we managed. Maureen was a great host and shared a lot of information about where we were going the next day (and the night before told us where to go eat - which was our best meal of the trip). It was a laid back experience. A plus was the room we stayed in had a little fan. I was so thankful! I had been sleeping with ear plugs the whole trip and needed a break - my husband is a loud breather and snores!!!! Had a great nights sleep because of that fan!

My friends and I spent one night at the Dormers and truly enjoyed our stay! We had arrived at the B&B much earlier than check-in, but the hosts made sure to have our room ready for us as soon as possible so we could get settled before venturing out. They were so sweet and accomodating, would recommend! I hope to visit again!

The B&B was very nice. The owner's were very helpful in making recommendations where to eat and how to get their. It is located close to the center of Galway. We were treated very nicely.
