    Our journey started with a warm welcome with homemade muffins and scons and tea in this very nice B&B. Rooms are nicely decorated, calm and have an exceptional view on the bay. A good place to enjoy Galway. In addition, you get a gourmet breakfast with quality food. Herons Rest, what else!

    Nothing negative to say about this accommodation. The price might be a bit high, yet you get good value for it.

    Staff were wonderful - warm, friendly and helpful. Our room was charming

    Nothing really. Could hear neighbours slightly but no big deal

    What a beautiful place. A lovely cuppa when you arrive, what a nice welcome. Lots of advice on what you can do in the area. Friendly, welcoming staff who do their very best to accommodate your needs. Breakfast was delicious, all home cooked by the landlady, locally sourced and organic. Good location, near the sea and the town, it's a lovely walk in the evening.

    Be aware that the local clamping company are a zealous lot here and will clamp your car pretty much straight away, so it makes sense to pay for the passes that the Herons Rest provide. No need to worry then about tickets running out etc. Also be aware of the week that you are booking, if you are looking for a peaceful break away then booking in Galway Race week is not the best idea. These are by no means faults of the Herons Rest who went above and beyond to make my stay as peaceful and comfortable as possible but it is a consideration when booking your stay.

    Quayside views. Spotless large ensuite room, with great quality furnishings, even down to a decanter of port, locally made soaps and shampoo, and binoculars and deck chairs. Breakfast unlike anything we have had in a B&B before - no fried full Irish here ! Variety of freshly cooked sweet or savoury breakfast items including muffns, scones amongst many other things. Service from Sorcha and her team is excellent, nothing is too much trouble. 90 minutes from Knock Airport by car. Parking is easy - practically right outside the B&B. Hire a parking permit from the B&B, it is so much easier and cheaper ! Sociable city with great food and drink opportunities. Trad Irish music in many of the colourful local pubs. Great market. Easy to get to the spectacular Connemara coastal scenery by car. Aran Islands can be easily reached by shuttle bus from the city to the ferry. The International Arts Festival was on at the time which was of a high standard, and so much fun.

    The staff and property were lovely!

    I would suggest reserving the private en suite option if possible. The staff kept the shared toilet clean, but the other guest did not.

    Breakfast was very nice.staff great, close to centre, parking easy out the front, watching the birds, seals,fish,swans.nice view from room.

    We are seniors and were given the top floor room, which was small but ok. The trouble was carting all our heavy luggage up 3 flights of steep steps and up and down when needed. From now on we are making sure we order rooms on ground or 1st when there are no lifts. We did get help with 1 bag. Peter, Sydney.

    location, so close to city and lovely views, Lovely menu for breakfast and just a little bit quirky.

    Maybe a little bit small if you wanted a romantic holiday as we all sat at a big table for breakfast but that did not bother us and were quite happy to chat with other guests.

    Excellent breakfast choices, all beautifully prepared. The two girls were an absolute delight and obviously enjoyed their work!

    The attention to detail and quality is great. The room was very comfortable, the breakfast very good and the view onto the river lovely. Very well located and an easy stroll into town.

    Finding the place by car was difficult. Get to the Spanish Gate and then walk a bit downstream and you are there!!

    Downtown location

    Information about parking from was not strictly accurate. There is no free parking nearby and the only realistic option for overnight parking is the multi-storey parking station about 600 m away.
