The apartment is a seven minute walk from the 'Latin Quarter' where many of Galway's most popular bars and restaurants are located. The Druid Theatre is also close by.

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!

There is a 3 day minimum stay. If 2 days are free, in between 3 day minimum bookings (during peak season), we have made that available (plus cleaning €30), for the 2 day booking.

The apartment price will go up to 125 euro per night (base price) for July and August.

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's home is truly a (URL HIDDEN) is Ruth! The home is in a wonderful location, close to water, the downtown area, the Crane Bar, etc. Ruth is a wonderful host that took the time to be sure that we were settled and had all that we needed. She also took the time talk to us about things to do/see, during our time in Galway. The home itself felt safe and warm. We were sad to leave!

Excellent location, beautiful townhouse. Close walk into the Latin Quarter as well as Salthill. Ruth was so accommodating, even providing a travel cot for our ten month old. She gave us lots of family-friendly recommendations, as well. Would absolutely stay again!
