The Space

Duplex apartment located conveniently in the city centre. We live on the second floor, no elevator unfortunately but we don't think it's that bad! The room being let has a double size bed and even comes with a sink!? :) There's also a makeshift balcony that's nice for chilling out on and watching the water, drinking a cup of coffee or just people watching.

Salthill and the sea is ten minutes from the apartment and eyre square is ten minutes in the other direction!

We have all the standard kitchen utensils. If you're into juicing, we recently bought a juicer you're more than welcome to use. Washer and Dryer is also available for your convenience.

Because we're located behind the Roisin Dubh it can sometimes get a bit loud. However we're not very loud people and we can sleep fine with it but just thought we'd mention it.


We have immersion heating which stores up the heat for the shower- Most times there's enough hot water for anyone to have a shower. If there isn't you just need to flick the booster switch and in about half an hour you should have some nice hot water.


The apartment is located conveniently in City Centre. All shops, amenities and supermarkets are located within walking distance.

Trendy bars are located along the street we live like the Roisin Dubh, Massimo's, The Blue Note, The Salt House and The Bierhaus. There's a lot!

There are also a lot of cool restaurants located on the street like Creole (Cajun food) Rouge (Great french place where you can get a really good steak dinner for 15€ and some tasty appetizers. Might sound too cheap and maybe awful, but trust us its wonderful!), Petit Rouge (Rouge's sister restaurant that is just a appetizer and wine bar). Dela is a Norwegian tapas place that seems to be doing really well.


From eyre square you can get buses to the outskirts of Galway or get transport direct to the airport in Shannon or Dublin

House Rules:

Suppose it's just like any other house- We don't like having to clean up after other people so don't trash it! :D Also we work on weekdays and even though it might get loud outside we definitely don't like it being too loud in the apartment when we have work in the morning.

  • Had a great stay at James' apartment in Galway! He introduced me to some of the best spots for drinks and food. It is a central location with easy access to everything. I recommend it, especially if you are looking to enjoy the Galway nightlife a bit!

  • James was an excellent host, providing helpful restaurant recommendations and taking us on an evening walk along the shore during which we had a very pleasant conversation. The accommodation was fine, and the location in the heart of Galway was ideal for visitors wanting to experience this area of lively streets adjacent to scenic river channels and streams bordered with thriving plants and flowers, ornamented by birds. Though there was some late night noise from a nearby pub, we did not find it a problem. I wish we could have spent more than a single night here, and hope to return.

  • I had a great stay at James and Andrina's home. The room was comfortable and clean, had a cool view towards a river. Since the apartment is located in the city center, I was able to get everywhere really fast.

    But what I really enjoyed were the fun conversations, cool tips and the feeling that I was welcomed :-)

    I can definitely recommend this place and would go back a second time!

  • This is a great spot right in the middle of all the action in Galway.
    James & Adlina greeted me at the station and helped me with my luggage which I really appreciated. The two of them were really friendly and knowledgable about Galway, the pubs, restaurants and venues. Highly reccommend.

  • James is an excellent host and really nice and friendly. He was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and finding a place to park our car. The apartment couldn´t be in a better location. Everything is in walking distance and you find plenty of good restaurants and bars on the street. The noise from the pub was a bit loud but when you leave the windows close at night it´s not such a big problem.

Fairly relaxed, easy going and into travelling. I enjoy reading, playing music, cooking, learning about technology. I live with my girlfriend Andrina. We were both born in New York, I moved to Ireland when I was 13 and she's just moved recently. We both love traveling and trying new things. Andrina is a photographer; fluent in Romanian and a bit of Spanish. We've both just started to use airbnb and decided to set up our own profile to host and meet new people. Our flat is quite homey and cosy. We love cooking, playing music, and going out. We look forward to hearing from you!
