Very nice place to stay. Great location and quiet. Kathleen was very gracious and pointed out places to eat and see that were close by. Her husband's scones were very delicious!

Kathleen is a wonderful host! She made me feel right at home immediately, and was so interested in my travels as well as what I do at home. We had great conversations and breakfasts were delicious! The house is located right on the bus line which made traveling to downtown Galway incredibly easy, and it was also easy to jump in the car and head out of town.

Kathleen was a wonderful host. We enjoyed chatting with her. She readily helped us when we needed input about our plan for the day. We were traveling with our 13 year old son & my 79 year old mother, both first time visitors to Ireland. Kathleen made sure there were games put out in case our son wanted entertainment and she made my mother feel right at home. We stayed for two nights and would definitely stay there again. Thanks Kathleen!

Kathleen was a wonderful host. She was great for giving local information and if there was anything she wasn't sure of, she found out and got back to me. Her house is lovely, spotless clean and the breakfast was great. Location was perfect with the bus to eyre square just outside on the main street. I would definitely stay here again.
