Beautifully restored Pre-Famine cottage. Listed on The Financial Times as a tranquil escape from the bustle of modern life. Rural setting surrounded by lacy stone walls, secluded gardens, and still on the outskirts of the cultural city of Galway.
“This is a unique place to stay that you will remember as a highlight of your trip. The host is friendly, quick to respond and goes out of his way to make you comfortable. He even baked a tasty loaf of gluten free bread for me. The cottage itself is exceptionally cozy and charming. Our visit coincided with miserable weather but that just added to the allure of sitting by the fire with a good book. In fact, the only downside of staying here is that you might not want to venture out to sightsee. The cottage is also located outside of town in a beautiful "secret" garden, so you have to drive to restaurants. That was only a small minus given the peaceful setting. The pictures can't possibly capture the quaintness of the place.”

Many of Galway's best restaurants and cafes are in the area, all doing take away menus until they reopen. Take away pints are available around the corner too! Supermarket and Spanish Arch 5 min walk. Salthill 15 min.
“Rebecca’s place was so nice, big and newly remodeled! She had everything we needing including a hair dryer, straightener and curling iron!! A real luxury on this trip. Not that the straight hair lasted long 😂. Also a washer/dryer combo. A few things we especially enjoyed about the area: the Galway west end is a lively area with many choices for dining. Crane’s pub is a wonderful local pub where we were treated to live traditional Irish music. We also enjoyed having a yoga studio right around the corner. However, the “family room” is big enough to do yoga. Rebecca has a nice big ROKU smart TV good for watching Netflix and other streaming services. Anyway, we highly recommend this place!”
Our place is located in Salthill, its a 5 min walk to the beach, cafes & restaurants. We are a 25 min walk to the lively city of Galway. This is a cosy private apartment with its own ensuite. It has its own private entrance and is attached to our main house.
“My partner and I decided on an impromptu night away during the week. We booked our stay the day of, and I luckily found Dolores’ b&b. She was hasty in responding and setting up our stay for us before we arrived that evening. The flat is a a bright and very charming, quaint and cozy space that is perfect for a couple or two people. We drove in and out of the city center within minutes and were right by the promenade which was so handy for our morning walk. I’m looking forward to booking this b&b for a future Galway stay. Thanks a million Dolores.”
