Corrib House awarded the McKennas’ Guide 100 Best in Ireland for 2024

We were all absolutely delighted here at Corrib House to receive this prestigious award for the 4th year running and to be listed in the top 100 places to stay on the Island of Ireland for 2020 -2024 .

We were delighted to be featured in a fabulous article by Rosita Boland recently in the Irish Times, Rosita called in for a cuppa and a chat on her 36 hours in Galway. Article below..

Corrib House in Woodquay is a beautifully restored and listed Georgian house that is now a five-bedroom guest house, with a lovely tearoom downstairs. With gorgeous views out over the Corrib, it gets my vote for the best located cafe in a city not short on good cafes.

Couple David and Victoria Bohan bought the house in 2010, at which point only two of its many rooms were being lived in. “When we were doing renovations, we discovered one bedroom wall had been filled with turf,” David says. “There’s a bag of it up in the Galway Museum now.”

They lived on site for the two years it took to restore the house. Their guests include judges sitting at the nearby courthouse, artists visiting festivals and many repeat tourists. They were full the previous night and have 95 per cent bookings for the rest of the summer. It’s very much a word-of-mouth place. “People tell us there is something very calming about the house,” Victoria says.

The tearooms used to be open seven days a week, but now are Wednesday-Sunday, in common with several other restaurants in Galway, and around the country, despite the fact it’s high season. “There’s a chef and staff shortage,” David says
