Formerly known as Coogan\'s Forge, where horses were shod for over a century, The Forge has been tastefully transformed into a welcoming B&B and family home. Your hosts the OConnell family were finalists in Failte Ireland\'s Irish Welcome Awards.

The Forge has 3 cosy en-suite guest rooms and secure car parking. All rooms are centrally heated and are equipped with television and broadband internet access. An extensive breakfast menu is served in our cosy dining room and is included in the rates.

The Forge is just 2 minutes from Galway city centre, where there are numerous pubs, shops, clubs, galleries, restaurants and theatres. It is also near University College, Eyre Square and the hospital. Nearby Salthill is a huge attraction, with its beautiful sandy beach and leisure activities.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I stayed one week at the Forge b&b, it was the 2nd time and because of the last experience I decided to stay there again.
The location is not in the city center but it's only a 10 min. walking distance to it. A small car park is at rear but you can also park on the street for a limited time. The rooms are very nice, tidy and have everything you need.
Mr. and Mrs. O'Connell who own the place are one of the loveliest people ever and the breakfast is very delicious.
I would recommend this b&b to everybody who wants to stay in Galway.

This place was super, great location, we were able to walk everywhere from here. We really enjoyed our stay at „The Forge“.
We got everything we needed and expected. We had the best breakfast since we've been travelling through Ireland.
We’ve received valuable personal service from the manager. Dolores was absolutely friendly and helpful and her hospitality was amazing. She makes sure the place is cosy, and she is on top of every situation that comes up. She is so genuine, warm and courteous, and her disposition is great. We definitely rate this place, and would love to be back here again!

Diese Pension ist super, sehr gut gelegen in einer ruhigen Seitenstraße. Es ist bequem von hier aus alle Ecken der Stadt zu Fuß zu erreichen. Der Aufenthalt in „The Forge“ machte richtig Spaß.
Wir haben hier alles erhalten, was wir erwarteten und wollten. Unser Frühstück war das Beste während unserer Irland-Reise.
Die persönliche Betreuung seitens des Managers war beispielhaft. Dolores war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend, und ihre Gastfreundlichkeit erstaunte uns. Sie hat dafür gesorgt, dass wir uns hier sehr wohl fühlten und sie kam mit jeder Situation zurecht. Ihre Persönlichkeit, Wärme und Höflichkeit waren genauso gut wie ihre Flexibilität. Wir empfehlen definitiv diese Pension und würden jederzeit wieder hier kommen.

Ten pensjonat jest super, bardzo dobrze usytuowany przy spokojnej, bocznej uliczce. Stąd można dotrzeć wygodnie do wszystkich zakątków miasta. Pobyt w „The Forge“ był prawdziwą przyjemnością.
Tu otrzymaliśmy wszystko to, czego oczekiwaliśmy i chcieliśmy. Podawane śniadanie było najlepsze podczas naszego pobytu w Irlandii.
Osobista opieka managera nie miała równych sobie. Dolores była bardzo uprzejma i pomocna, a jej gościnność budziła nasze zdziwienie. Dbała o to, abyśmy czuli się tu bardzo dobrze i radziła sobie w każdej sytuacji. Jej osobowość, ciepło i uprzejmość mogła się równać z jej elastycznością. Definitywnie polecamy ten pensjonat i chętnie zatrzymalibyśmy się tam ponownie.
