Friendly generous hosts. A spotless room and amazing food. Mike and Breida go above and beyond in every situation. I stayed 5 nights at Ardawn. The only difficulty was proximity to the greyhound track. As an animal lover, it was difficult to see that from my window. Otherwise a great neighborhood proximate to shopping and dining.


Excellent accommodations with generous hosts and a very good Irish Breakfast. Very convenient to City Center. Comfortable room with plenty of space. They were able to accommodate us last minute and were the only place the Tourist Center downtown would recommend.


We traveled all around Ireland and stayed at the Ardawn House in Galway for 2 nights. We had a great stay and the main reason was because of the people. The owners were by far the nicest people we met in Ireland (and that’s saying a lot because all the people we met in Ireland were amazing!).
