We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay. The room was clean, comfortable, and well appointed. Kathleen was a friendly and courteous host and the breakfasts were hearty and delicious. There are a few good restaurants and cafes within walking distance and the location is easy to get to by car car, albeit the traffic can be a bit slow on the main road at peak periods. We definitely recommend Avoca House for your vacation stays!

The house was in an excellent location, just minutes to Galway’s main area. Our host was friendly and helpful, and the food was great! Easy parking and helpful tips for seeing the town. We couldn’t be happier about our stay!!

Lovely place and great hosts! We were able to arrive earlier a we just arrived from the US. Tasty coffee and full delicious Irish breakfast. A bus right in front takes you to the center of Galway. Highly recommended!

Lovely spotless B & B perfect as a home base to see all that the area offers (Cliffs of Moher , Kylemore Abbey, Galway City, Connemara National Park). Kathleen and Peter were warm and gracious hosts, with helpful suggestions including last minute recommendations on plans given updated weather reports! Their fun sense of humor showed through when we mistakenly called Peter “Tom” and they proceeded to give him a different name each day!😂 Could not have chosen a better place to stay in Galway.
