Nice clean, comfortable house with no frills.
Lovely clean modern house. I booked a single and although the room was small the bed was a small double and very comfortable. Shower room a bit small but perfectly adequate.Breakfast was good and freshly cooked with toast but no yogurt or brown bread on offer. On the down side there was no tea making facilities in room. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would return.

The proprietor was very nice and obliging. We had to leave early for a flight and would miss breakfast. He offered to make us sandwiches to bring with us. The hotel was very clean, and the regular breakfast was excellent. However, we had the family room and it was extremely small. There was room for the beds and not much else. Very little room to move around. Additionally, the shower stall was very small.

Great hosts!
The hosts were wonderful. They were there to answer our questions and served a wonderful full Irish breakfast. If it were just for their hospitality, I would give 110% to this review. The downsides to our stay: The room and ensuite bathroom were quite small. It was difficult moving around while we were there. The neighborhood was noisy. There were crowds of people laughing and partying well into the night.

Very quaint little spot! The bathroom in our room was extremely small but it worked for what we needed! The owner was extremely kind and helpful. His breakfast was the best! The only thing I want to note is that a lot of people said it was within walking distance to city center and it was not, but the bus was €2 to get to town and we didn't mind too much. Also very close to Merlins Pub which was a great spot for a pint!

Decent B&B with good breakfast
We had a decent stay at the Branches. Our room was small but clean and tidy. The one thing that we didn't like was that our bathroom was not an ensuite, it was the room next to ours. When we asked if other guests would be using the bathroom, he said probably not as the other rooms all had ensuites. This was the only thing we didn't like about our stay. The breakfast was good, the price is decent, and it's about a 5 minute drive from downtown Galway. Note that parking in downtown is quite expensive (2 euro per hour) so factor that in to the price vs a downtown hotel with free parking.

A little small but great service.
Loved the venue and breakfast. The only reason the room comfort is a two is because it was a little snug. Will definitely return.

Small but comfortable
Although we were only here for a night, we enjoyed our stay. The B&B is outside of the city, but it has a few restaurants nearby, and it's easy to get to. The room was small but served its purpose -- the bed was quite comfortable, which is not always a sure thing. The bathroom, however, was almost too small to be comfortable -- when you sit on the toilet your knees are literally in the shower. Breakfast was delicious, and Mike was a gracious host and cook.
