Ontario House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #99 of 189 Galway B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 June 2017

Nice stay at Ontario house. Simple, clean and comfy accommodations and generous kind hosts. Short walk into Salthill and we found it easy to walk into Galway as well. We stayed in a room without an ensuite but it wasn't a problem. Delicious Irish breakfast. Would stay here again for sure!

I stayed at Ontario House for one week.
John and Anne the hosts are so welcoming, warm and friendly. The room is very clean, spotless. The bed is very comfy. Excellent wifi. I really felt at home. Five out of five. A big thumbs up.

We used this B&B as a stop-over. We did not visit Galway but it looks like it's located somewhat outside of the centre.
We had the family room which is quite small for 4 people. If you place your suitcases on the floor there's not much place to move around.
The bathroom includes the shower and toilet, the sink is located in the sleeping room.

Breakfast was good. Continental is included in the price, Irish is available with an extra charge.

There are parking places behind the house and it's recommended to park a larger car in driving direction to leave the car park.

Comparing to other B&Bs, this was the most expensive for a family room this size.

Sorry for the minor inconvenience with your suitcases, but some people do carry extra large suitcases, for a 2 week holiday. Europeans have never complained about the size of the room. This is my home not a hotel. Hotel rooms cater for people with lots of luggage and the rooms are there fore larger. If you require a larger family room, stay in a hotel, its more expensive, but you get what you pay for.

We booked this guest house well in advance of an upcoming wedding in the Salthill Hotel. Plenty of parking at the rear of this well kept Guest house. Hosts Anne and John were very nice and friendly. Bedroom has ensuite but it is on the small side when a double bed is in the room. Place clean and spotless which is a credit to the running of this place. Breakfast was served between 8.00am and 10.00am and check out was at 11.00 am which I thought was early for a B&b. We have stayed in other bed and breakfasts where they would operate a later check out. That is my only gripe. We were very tired and left right after breakfast. The walk to the Salthill Hotel took us fifteen minutes to get there and we walked pretty fast as it was all downhill getting there and back it was uphill and took us twenty minutes. I have no hesitation recommending this bed and breakfast and our stay was short and pleasant.

Anne and John were wonderful hosts and very accommodating. I was travelling with my father, and we made reservations only a day in advance for a five-night stay. Our first night was in a room that wasn't ensuite, but Anne moved us to an ensuite room for the remainder of our stay. Both rooms were quiet and very clean. We enjoyed breakfast in the mornings, and the ample parking was very handy. It was easy to get into and out of the city from here.

Salthill is a beautiful walk along the water from Galway, but if you're not up for exercise, then there is a bus that drops close by. Definitely take the time to walk the promenade, however. And stop into O'Connor's for a pint.

Room Tip: Some rooms have sea view, although you're far enough from the sea that it won't matter eithe...
