We were perfectly happy with this accommodation. It is not too central but so close to the beach and it's no problem at all to walk to the city center. The atmosphere was very friendly and you just had to feel like home especially with this nice breakfast! We'll definately come back.

We had a lovely experience staying at Roncalli House. The bed was amazing - so comfy, and our breakfast each day was delicious - french toast was my highlight! It's about a 10 min walk along the bay into the centre of town, with lots of free parking if you have a car.


Carmel was a delightful hostess, very warm and interested in what we were up to, and provided all help as needed. Breakfast was very nice and the room was comfortable. The location was good as it was 10mins to walk to the closest restaurants and shops, although we drove downtown one night and parked in the car park as it was just too cold and wet to walk. Overall very happy with our stay I Galway- a good position to have day trips to the surrounding areas.
