Had just one night at this B and B and thoroughly enjoyed. The location is a little out of town - but that's what we loved about it. Overlooked the Bay and the sunset was absolutely stunning. Everything was clean and organized and we were even greeted by the owners' dogs. Room was large and clean and water pressure and...

We had a wonderful stay. The Owner/Hostess was charming. Loved the honor bar and outside patio. Room very comfortable. The town of Ballyvaugn very quaint. Went to Monk's local restaurant for drinks nerd and had great fish n chips.

I really wanted to like this property. But unfortunately this was our worst experience in Ireland. The property is the furthest out of town yet I was ok with that. It's is beautifully designed However If you are looking for the kind and genuine Irish hospitality you may not find it there. The place is run by a German couple...

My family and I stayed here for one night in a family room. It was a same day telephone booking and while the guesthouse was almost full (12 rooms total), Bernadette was able to reshuffle some other reservations to allow us a room with an extra bed. The guesthouse is fabulous. Overlooking the bay. Walking distance to the beach and...

This was our second visit to Drumcreehy Country House and I'm sure it won't be our last. Our bedroom was lovely and the breakfast provided was a fabulous spread along with a delicious choice of cooked food from the menu. Our hosts were charming and made both us and our dog very welcome.

A good location between the Burren and the sea, friendly welcome and service, comfortable bedroom and public rooms, attention to detail of the decor, lovely sea view over Galway Bay. Truly superlative breakfast buffet and excellent range of real teas to make yourself whenever you wish. Did miss the convenience of a kettle in the room though. Dog friendly.

Ballyvaughan is a tiny town on the gorgeous west coast of Ireland. The scenery is spectacular, pace of life very quiet. I was here to see my child at the Burren College of Art; otherwise would probably never have heard of this corner of the world. The Drumcreehy Country House could not have been more lovely. The hosts were extremely...

Coming highly recommended, we decided on a one night trip to Ballyvaughan and Drumcreehy House and it lived up to our expectations. The owner, Bernadette could not have been more welcoming.
