I cannot rate this bnb highly enough, Two of this nicest people I've stayed with, I spent 4 days and will surely come again. Very helpful and funny. The rooms were tidy and bnb is located a short walk from both Salthill promenade and the heart of Galway city. Thank you Jimmy and Patricia. hopefully see you again soon.
