While the accommodation is slightly outside the city centre, this turned out to be a positive - we were able to see parts of Galway while walking which we would never have seen otherwise. The staff are lovely and conscientious, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay

This property is quaintly situated with an ocean’s view. I was sent an email by the owner before arriving with detailed instructions and helpful information. I took a 15 minute can that cost about 13 Euro. You can also take bus 402a. Upon entering the home I was greeted by the owner. The room was beautiful. Towels and chocolates laid out on the bed. Salt Hill is absolutely beautiful. About a 1/2 hr walk to the promenade. I would seriously consider moving to this beautiful part of the country.

Right by the bay. Wonderful staff and quaint b&b
This is a beautiful place but inconvenient without a car to wait on the bus and it drops you a 15-20 minute walk from there. Also $15 euro to the train station via taxi so city center may be easier for some also breakfast is $10 euro so not included but huge and delicious

This B and B is directly across the street from Rusheen Bay--part of Galway Bay and is an easy and fast taxi or bus ride from city center. Very friendly staff, excellent breakfast, including traditional Irish and beautiful rooms. I would definitely stay here again.

8/10 Very good

This is a beautifully decorated and well-maintained B & B, but a B & B where you have to pay extra for breakfast! When we first arrived early afternoon, the whole building was VERY HOT; then at night the radiator shut off and there was no heat! Of course, the rooms are small, which is fine; what I should state again for future travelers is that Rusheen Bay House is a B & B that asks for extra for breakfast!
