The Herons Rest B&B in Galway Ciy is in a very convenient location and its situation on the water makes it a great place to return to at night and to walk out the door in the morning. The staff are wonderful too and the food was excellent. Can't emphasize that enough - Sorcha, Mark and Mike are quite good in the kitchen. I'd recommend anyone to stay there - a view of the water from your room, a fabulous breakfast in the morning, and then a day in the west of Ireland.

Detailed touches (bar of dark chocolate, decanter of Port in the room, Irish Times each morning, - over and above the usual tea and coffee making facilities,) were very welcome. Breakfast gorgeous. Lots of towels and slippers. Disappointed that the bar of chocolate wasn't replaced the next day. Disappointed no soap in shared bathroom. Room over front door, which banged every time a guest came in for breakfast. Woke me up from approx. 7am. each morning. Excellent location!
