We were greeted at the door by the proprietor, Sharon, and welcomed like family. Sharon made checking in a breeze. She made some good suggestions about tours and places to visit in the area. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfast each morning (minimal charge) which came with cereal and a full Irish breakfast,...

Just wonderful, very spacious. The warm welcome is second to none. What better than been greeted with a pot of tea and biscuits. On my last I received a lovely box of cookies as a christmas treat. You can't ask for better than that.

Firstly, what an amazing location! Salthill is peaceful and has good bars and restaurants and a sea view. On top of this it is a 15 minute walk from the city center so location wise, it's ideal. The staff were lovely and chatty and assistance was readily available if needed. The bedroom was spacious enough and the bed was good...

My mom and I stayed here for a couple of nights for a weekend away. It was definitely one of the most affordable options in Salthill. The design of the room was dated but this didn't bother us as we really only used Ocean Crest for sleep. The bathroom was slightly claustrophobic and very close to the bed in the...

This hostel was exactly what was published about it, cute, comfortable, reasonable and great location (beach front). The receptionist offers full assistance, is fast and pleased to help. I don't think I could chose any better place during my stay, it was short, 2 nights only, but I was happy about it!

The B&B was well located. It's 15 minutes walk from the city centre. We had a nice room with a view on the ocean. The room was adequate and the staff was very kind. I must recommend if you are on a small budget and want to visit Galway. It's a value for money B&B. You can park your car...
