Kathleen was a wonderful hostess! Her home was clean, modern and convenient. We (there were 4 of us) loved the conversation and she even accommodated our breakfast choices, which was French toast. She must have been adept in the kichen because all of our full breakfasts, each different, were served in no time at all. A good choice when staying in Galway. Thanks, Katleen!

Kathleen was a wonderful host. We arrived feeling a little under the weather and she made sure we had anything we needed. She provided great directions for attractions near Avoca House. Her home is right next to a bus stop so we were conveniently located to get to the city center. Our room was clean and welcoming! Her scones are delicious as well!

This is a most classy BnB! We had high expectations and Kathleen exceeded these. We were made most welcome, given excellent suggestions for local and further afield activities all laid over with good advice to ensure a hassle free stay. The room was very clean and everywhere in this place showed huge attention to the needs of guests. We recommend this establishment very highly indeed.

We have a lovely time in this B&B. Very friendly and clean. They make you feel at home. Give good advice for things to do and see. If I ever go back to Galway, I will certainly book this B&B again. Great city also, by the way.
