There are so many places to chose from and it's so hard to decide which is the best. We would like the experience of a good bed and breakfast not too far from town. If you have any suggestions would appreciate the info. We are going to be there in early Nov.

Re: accomadations

by WhispersWest

I have always enjoyed staying at ST. Martin's B&B. It used to be a hidden treasure but they now have a website,, so it won't be a hidden treasure much longer. It is very well located to City centre, about a five minute walk or a ten minute stroll. Mary makes a delicious Irish breakfast with some very tasty Brown Bread. Her scones are quite delicious, as well. You definitely will not push away from Mary's breakfast table hungry. Parking is the only issue, as there is none onsite. However, you can get street parking and pay a few Euros to get a sticker to put in your window to park overnight on the street. There is also a parking garage not far from the B&B.Rooms are simple and small, but you can't pick a better location in Galway, as it is right on the river.

Slan Beo,

Thatch roof cottage, horses out back, 15 min walk from downtown Galway.

by ernie01

We just got back from our stay in Galway. If you're staying a week or more I'd like to recomend the cottage we stayed at. Sleeps 5,fire place,horse pasture out back,landcaped garden in front, gated drive, close to the city, but country feel. Short walk to downtown, but on the busline as well. The one time that we took a cab from downtown it cost us 7.60 euro. Oh, full kitchen and laundry, but you'd have to cook your own breakfast.
E-mail if you want the contact info.

I would like to know more about the thatched roof cottage at the edge of Galway on the busline. Please tell me more! We have 5 people exactly so it might be perfect. Thanks

Re: accomadations

by ernie01

My wife booked the cottage through a website called "Imagine Ireland". You'll find this cottage as well as many others at their site, but I believe this is the only "THATCH" listed in Galway City.

Travel Tips for Galway


by Mandy23

National University of Ireland-Galway - Initially called Queen's College Galway, Galway's central university was designed and built by the architect J.B. Keane during the Great Famine. However, it didn't open its doors to students until October 1884. Women students were first permitted to enroll in 1906, and the first woman to receive an engineering degree in Ireland received it at this university.

The campus has recently expanded to accommodate its increasing student body. Most of the university buildings range in age from the mid-19th century to the brand new Millennial Arts building. The original structure, a 19th-century, neo-Gothic quadrangle, is well worth seeing.

You can take a ferry from here...

by husain

You can take a ferry from here to get yourself to the aran islands, home to some of the most ancient pre-Christian remains in Ireland. Of the three islands - Inishmore, Inishmaan and Inisheer. Inishmore- dun aengus, is the most popular with the tourists. The islands' isolation had allowed Irish culture to survive when it had all but disappeared elsewhere.
Also,...from galway, you can drive on to the cliffs of moher.

pubs of galway

by frankie_ireland about others

for trad music stick to shop st and quay st and some of the lanes of them, it's everywhere!!! for a more fancy, up market type pub try "the living room" at the bottom of shop st or "the cellar" on eglington st and finally "bar 903" on eyre sq. no dress codes apart from in up market pubs, shoes etc are a help there but if you're stopped by door men it's usually cos you're off your face drunk.

Below the Great Southern Galway Hotel

by DrexelDragon about O'Flaherty's

Comfortable place. Food was good and not outrageously priced. Wasn't very crowded, so I had a good view of the big screen TV for the Celtic vs. Rangers match. More people came in as I was leaving around 3:30pm.

The Burren

by bluesmama

Close to Galway is the strange landscape of The Burren. To me it looks really inhospitable but there were actually lots of different plants when you took a closer a look.
It was quite difficult to walk on the rocks, you really had to watch your step.
