We had a great stay in this lovely b&b, our hostess was friendly and kind! We were 2 couples. It's a bit of a drive to the city center, I recommend going there if you have a car. Overall great time and decent price.

Nice area, away from any noise and surrounded by fields. The house is in excellent conditions, rooms with a lot of space and very clean, with bathroom included. It is located in a lovely place. The owner was really nice. Strongly recommended

We stayed in Carraig B&B in a double room for one night and highly enjoyed our stay. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean, and the bedroom was well equipped with a tv and tea/coffee making facilities. The host was very welcoming and helpful, providing us with information about Galway city centre and a delicious full irish breakfast. I would...

We started our Ireland vacation with 2 days at Carraig B&B and we couldn't have had a warmer welcome! Mary, our hostess, was absolutely wonderful -- she took the time to get to know us, gave us great tips for Galway, and made sure we felt completely at home in her house. The rooms were very spacious and spotlessly clean,...

Top notch B&B with a great morning breakfast service. Rooms spacious, clean, modern, warm and good shower. We needed to get back into Galway city and the woman ordered our taxi for us and asked us what time we like breakfast for in the morning. What more can you ask for! I would recommend it for sure :)
