The stay here was the highlight of this trip to Ireland. The thatched roof, bog fire, scones, etc. Nancy was the perfect hostess. Our lives were enriched by the stories she told. We felt at home here. Really did not want to leave. Don't miss the opportunity to stay here.

Everything about our stay here was delightful. The rooms are comfortable and well taken care of, the breakfast was the tastiest we had in our two weeks on the island, and the hospitality was as warm as can be. This was a model of hospitality and we will remember it as our favorite place of the trip. Thank you for...

This is a great little cottage. Nancy is a wonderful host. We spent a night away, and she double checked to make sure we were ok! Very thoughtful. This cottage is a little out of Galway, only about a 15 min. drive, not far from grocery/wine stores or little pubs. We walked into Spiddal for dinner one night. There is...

This is one of the best b&bs we have stayed in. Nancy and Tom are great hosts, they have a wonderful, friendly charm and really care about their guests. Nancy will not let you go without either freshly based cake or bread every day, that's on top of the tasty breakfasts - you have to try her crepes at least...

The thatch provides the first clue. The peat fire welcomes you to the common room. And Nancy & Thomas complete the old time hospitality that we wish were more prominent elsewhere. What a lovely stay! The room was super and the breakfasts the same. A true treat to share their space with them The only regret? Not having more time...

Four of us stayed with Nancy and Tom for three nights on our tour of the Wild Atlantic Way, and they made us very welcome.

Thomas and Nancy were absolutely the best b&b hosts we have ever had. They were so welcoming and friendly that it felt like coming home to family. We stopped in the area at last minute looking for a place to stay and were lucky to have found this place. The wifi in the common seating area is nice as you...

We have stayed with Nancy three times in the last eight years and hope to return again. The thatched cottage is beautiful and authentic, but has all modern conveniences -- including wifi and en suite bathrooms. Nancy's cooking is delicious, whether it's the traditional full Irish breakfast, delicious apple crepes or her bread, baked over the open fire. Ocean views...
