BED & BREAKFAST's

There are numerous good Bed and Breakfasts in and around Galway that offer very comfortable yet affordable accommodation. Most B&Bs are willing to negotiate prices depending on the time of year, number of people and number of nights. Not surprisingly, peak times are around the various festivals occurring throughout the year. Notable areas for B&B accommodation are: College Road; Cashel Mara (on the Coast Road); and Lower Salthill.
