This is lovely house with warm and capable hosts, Frank and Joan. It feels like a very nice and comfortable home. Easy walk to central Galway. Outstanding breakfast. Updated, nicely decorated rooms. Highly recommend, hope we can return some day!

Super clean, bright, room. Breakfast was terrific, and there were lots of options: full Irish, minus the puddings (which no one eats anyway, according to Frank); salmon and eggs; fruit and oatmeal - to name a few. The fresh baked breads were awesome. Frank served breakfast and seemed as chatty as folks wanted him to be. We were spending the...

There are B&Bs and then there is Petra House in Galway! Frank and Joan are the most gracious hosts ever! Their home is exquisitely decorated. The breakfast is just amazing. Not just the quality of the food, but the care with which the table is set and how it is served. Our room (in the front of the house) was...

A five-minute walk from the bus station, Petra House is less than 20 minutes from Galway High Street, museum and harbor. Frank and Joan are considerate hosts and serve a fine breakfast. My room was immaculate, cheerful, and airy, and the drivers for Wild Atlantic Way Day Tours picked me up both mornings, which saved me a trip into town....

This was our second trip to Ireland. We stayed only in hotels and castles on our first trip. This time we wanted to experience some B & Bs. I went on line and found Petra House. It looked lovely but the pictures didn't even do it justice. What a magnificent home. It's filled with the most beautiful ornaments and flowers....

Petra House surpassed our expectations. The hosts Frank and Joan went out of their way to make our visit one that we will remember for a long time! Our room was spacious and well appointed. The bathroom appeared to have been recently remodeled. The common areas were luxurious. The breakfast menu had many selections from which to choose; the salmon...

Our hosts, Frank and Joan, were the best hosts of all our stays in Ireland. So warm and welcoming. This is saying something, because we had so many great experiences in Ireland. Beautiful home, extremely well-maintained. Delicious breakfasts with many choices. We enjoyed our in-room: coffee & tea tray, ironing board, hairdryer, lovely linens. They have thought of and supplied...

Petra House is a beautiful B&B, in a convenient location in Galway. The owners, Frank and Joan, are charming and friendly. Breakfast choices could not be better! The rooms are clean, updated, and very comfortable. Our room had a gorgeous view of their beautiful flower gardens. They provide tea and coffee in the bedroom, with an electric teapot for boiling...

Petra House was the nicest B&B we stayed in during our 9 day trip to Ireland. The rooms were well appointed with a hairdryer, tissues, bar soap, shampoo and conditioner, a fan, and a top sheet (not just the duvet). These things were usually not found in the other B&Bs. The breakfast was outstanding--I had the salmon and bagel with...
