    Small but cute!

    Where to check in was a little confusing but after we figured it out, we got settled in. Our room was small but had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom didn't have much to it but again, it had everything we needed. Parking was in the back and they offered to help with our suitcases up the stairs. Hardly anywhere nearby to eat a good dinner but we ended up finding a place after awhile. I would definitely stay there again! Great breakfast in the morning at the restaurant.

    brilliant staff!

    Room was great, well finished and very clean. Staff were very helpful. I had to leave before breakfast started at 8am, but they were able to make toast, coffee and pastries for me so I had something for the road!

    Lovely people, food & location.

    It was lovely. Well placed in the centre of the Athenry for eating and drinking. The the breakfasts I had were very nice and so were the people. On days I needed to leave early a packed braeakfast was brought to my room. Scot and his team could do enough for me. Excellent stay an well worth staying just outside Galway for.

    Stay here, you won't regret it.

    This place is absolute perfection!! The staff...I don't have the vocabulary to do the staff justice. They are so incredibly wonderful!! The stay, amazing!!! Spotless, fully functional, majorly comfortable, and a terrific value. The food, I'd eat there every day if I could. There is no question as to whether I'll be back. I will. Already planning our return. You will NOT be disappointed. Guaranteed.

    Quaint stay so worth it!

    This guesthouse hotel with its restaurant across the street was a wonderful stop on our trip. The guesthouse was comfortable with delectable treats left on the bedside table. The restaurant had delicious food we enjoyed for dinner and breakfast. The cherry almond pastry was the best thing ever! The check in process was so easy and all the staff were so friendly and went above and beyond from helping with bags and making recommendations. This was my favorite little place to explore!
