The space

This is a beautiful apartment in Galway City centre, built in 2007.
It is about a five minute walk to the Salthill Promenade and the ocean. It is an ideal location for day trips to the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands and Connemara.

It consists of two bedrooms, one double and one small single room, an open plan living room/kitchen and a bathroom with an electric shower. There is also a double futon in the living area and a single pull out camp bed. All linen and towels are provided, 1 bath towel & 1 hand towel is provided for each guest for their 3 day stay.
The beautiful light filled, cozy kitchen, is handmade, using natural wood for presses, and flooring throughout , with local Connemara marble worktops. The spiral staircase was also handmade on site. You're welcome to use all condiments from the well equipped kitchen.
The bathroom upstairs has an electric shower, with a tub/full bath/jacuzzi. The living room and back yard are south-facing so you get lots of natural light. The apartment has free private parking right outside the door, laundry facilities, hi speed wifi, 2 HD plasma TV's and JBL’s Xtreme Bluetooth speaker. Relax at night, watching a film on Comcast/Netflix or listening to music after a day's sightseeing.

The apartment is in a quiet residential neighbourhood, with a supermarket around the corner. It is also on the Eyre Square to Salthill bus route. The spiral staircase going up to the bathroom,which is located upstairs, means the apartment is not suited for guests with mobility issues.
Please note that the instant, hot, electric shower is positioned, european style, inside the bath tub, so you lift your leg, and step into the tub!

We had a lovely stay at Ruth's for three nights in Galway. The house was clean, comfortable, and cozy! There is a fireplace in the living room we made much use of, and it was so nice to come home to its warmth. Location is excellent, a quick ten minute walk to the city center, and five minute walk to excellent restaurants and pubs. (Recommend Kai Cafe!) Communication with Ruth was easy as was check in/out. We were a bit turned around checking in at night in the pouring rain, and Ruth came out and found us! (She had sent very clear and accurate directions, which I had just failed to read!) She gave us lots of great food/pub recommendations as well. There is also a washer and dryer to use which was very handy for us during a long trip. Highly recommend Ruth and her lovely home, so glad we had the opportunity to be her guest!

Ruth was an exceptionally welcoming host and gave us lots of tips about what to do in and around Galway and was always ready to help and prompt to get back to us. Ruth was also accommodating of around our checking in/out, which was great for us. The flat is really lovely, full of light in the living room and kitchen, with a lovely garden at the back. There is a large double bedroom and a small single bedroom, though there is also space to add another bed outside the single bedroom, which we used for our youngest child. For those who like/want to cook, the kitchen is very well equipped. The location of the flat is really great, it is within a residential area but about 2 minutes walk from a street full of great restaurants, cafes, pub (Sea Road), only about 10 minutes walk from the centre of town and 15 minutes walk from Salt hill, which is full of restaurants and has a promenade along the shore. There is also a supermarket right next to the house. Would definitely recommend staying at Ruth and visiting Galway.

This property is in a wonderful part of Galway. There is an excellent supermarket a two minute walk away. Three minutes of walking takes you to Ernies supplier of organic fruit and veges and fresh fish. We ate dinner at the French restaurant Rouge which was delicious and the service there was impeccable. On each of the three nights we spent in Galway we also enjoyed a Guinness at the Crane pub.

Ruth's appartment is perfectly located for a visit to Galway. There's a supermarket a few hundred metres away and the city centre is a leisurely 10 mins stroll. The appartment is delightful - light and airy with comfortable beds and a well resourced kitchen. Ruth is a brilliant communicator and even provided us with recommendations for what to do in Galway with two teenage sons. Thoroughly recommended.

The apartment is very well located both close by foot from Galway main activities and also quiet and calm for good sleeps. Also very practical with useful equipments, a supermarket just beside (just cross the street) and close from main road to Connemara. Ruth is a welcoming host, gives all the needed information on arrival and remains available to answer your questions.
