Ard Aoibhinn is a short walk from the village of Spiddal in Connemara. This couple, Barbara and Tim show you every courtesy and kindness. I'll never forget my stay there. In the breakfast room you're surrounded by Eamon O'Doherty's illustrations from the book, The Northern Fiddler. He stayed in this house some years ago and gifted them with these stunning... More

This was our first trip to Ireland and about the fourth B&B we had been at, from the four this was the very best. Barbara was a sweet heart. We came in drenched from the rain and she took our jackets to put them to dry. We had brought in food from the outside and she generously allowed us to... More

This was a very nice B and B. Bathroom was roomy. Beds were comfortable and we had a heating pad too. Host was helpful and directed us to bank and restaurants and made breakfast to order. Convenient and easy to find location just outside Spiddal. I would recommend this B and B.

Excellent B&B. Location to town center, parking, room size and facilities, breakfast all very good. Very nice lounge area. Tariff for a "solo biker" was also very good. Other place gauge single travelers with higher rates. Not here.

I'm very sad to be sitting here writing this review. About a week ago, I was finishing up my honeymoon in the amazing country of Ireland. My wife and I stayed our final night in Spiddal. Barbara and Tim were great hosts. I was ready to sit around and relax for the day and not do a thing but with... More

We booked three nights at Ard Aoibhinn for our visit in and around Galway and the Aran Islands. Barbara greeted us very kindly and was nothing but friendly and helpful for our entire stay. However, we were disappointed in our accommodations. The room itself was clean, but very small and cabin-like. The bathroom was the smallest we saw in our... More

Large clean rooms. Spacious bath. Shower worked well and has supplemental air heat. Sitting room has books galore with many on Ireland. Great chats in the bright breakfast area. Spacious parking. Nose out until you can see when exiting the driveway. Great value. Not directly on ocean but Spiddal is a short walk and has a protective cove and great... More

JUNE 2014. We spent 2 days at Ard Aoibhinn B&B. Barbara and Tim were very friendly and received us with a warm welcome including coffee and biscuits. B&B has a stunning view on the ocean. Very good location as starting point visiting Aran Isles and town Galway. Pubs and restaurants shops and Roman Catholic Church along with beaches nearby. Barbara... More

We were travelling as a family and needed two rooms. On first blush, the rooms looked great. The fixtures in the bathrooms were a little dated. The light over the sink in the room I had was intermittent, and you couldn't tell if it was on or off. Of course, it came on in the middle of the night, cause... More

We were here in early June, 2013 while exploring the Connemara and Galway City. Barbara was very friendly and helpful with maps, suggested routes, etc., and even let us check in early, which really helped. The breakfast (and sunny, spacious breakfast area) was lovely, and our two rooms were comfortable. Unfortunately, the weather that day wasn't great, and the next... More
