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.

My stay in Galway was fabulous and the apartment was everything I expected it to be! The bedrooms were comfortable and it had everything we needed such as plenty of towels and sheets etc. Ruth was great in showing us how everything worked in the apartment and was easily reached if I had any questions. The location was perfect because it literally was like a 10 minute walk to all of the pubs, restaurants, and shops! It was a plus the weather was sunny and warm for my visit as well! I will definitely be back again :)

This place was amazing, and was part of the reason why we had a lovely weekend. It is certainly a place to come back on a future trip to Galway!

Excellent, well equipped house. We were warm enough even in February with just the lovely wood burning stove. Kitchen was good. Just a short walk to the city and very close to great supermarket and lovely cafe (Anton's). Good to have parking on site. None of us liked the electric shower though, especially getting into a bath to have shower. Great for a couple or 3 people, bit of a squash for 4. Would stay again (without kids!) and would recommend.

This apartment is very well centralized to the Salthill and downtown. Cozy in the winter with the gas stove. We felt very safe staying there. Quiet, clean and cozy

Staying at Ruth's place was about as perfect an experience as you an imagine. I truly don't understand the comments saying it was a long walk to town. It is literally only a few blocks from the wonderful west end, and I timed the walk to the Latin Quarter and High Street at just about 5 minutes! Really a great distance, as you can enjoy the quiet of being outside of the chaos of the center and at the same time a quick and easy walk to all the action. Ruth's place was cleverly designed to take advantage of the small space, with ALL the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. As a host, Ruth was attentive and kind, and despite her extremely busy schedule managed to meet us at the door as we arrived. The place itself is in a perfect location, quiet and close, and is warmly decorated. Everything worked great. Would certainly stay there again next visit! Thank you Ruth for your kind hospitality.

Ruth's Airbnb was lovely! Very clean, well stocked (we cooked a full turkey Christmas dinner), warm and cozy, loads of hot water for showers and central/walking distance to everything you need! Very close to downtown Galway! Great place for 2-4 people! Private parking in the yard if you need parking. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would highly recommend it! It was the first time we have stayed in an Airbnb and now we have a standard to look at booking future Airbnbs!
