Aoife was a great host! She was the perfect balance between helpful and hands off. Her apartment is beautiful, clean and central to shops, nightlife, dining and attractions. My husband and I ended our honeymoon at Aoife's place. Her apartment in Galway was the perfect place to end our magical trip!

What an amazing spot in one of my new favorite cities. Aoife communicated everything clearly out was able to answer any questions. quickly. This is a great spot if you are looking for a quiet place to rest your head after a late night or adventures day. Secluded but directly located near all the things to see and do in Galway.

Excellent location, wonderful host. Aoife was so helpful and very quick to respond, especially when we had a mishap checking in. We somehow had the old code for check-in (some weird technological glitch where the information differed from the app to the website); but Aoife handled it so well and was so lovely about it all! So close to the main streets of Galway for restaurants/bars/shops while also being far enough away to be secluded and quiet. Would recommend!

Aoife's place is great. As someone who once lived in Galway, this is not only an ideal location, it's the perfect place to feel like you're really at home during your stay. Will be returning to this great apartment when we return next time.

Aoife's apartment is in the best location in Galway. The small apartment complex is nestled right along the water as the photo shows, with coded-entryway and a lovely, landscaped courtyard. It was very quiet, yet was right in the heart of the Galway waterfront. Aoife was attentive, left us with breakfast fixings and even offered to drive us to my grandmother's birthplace when I told her about our plans. The apartment is very much as pictured. The shower was lacking in water pressure, but a bath was easy to draw and use. There was plenty of hot water. We would have appreciated more shelf space in the bath and bedroom.

Aoife's place is ALMOST everything you need for a great stay in Galway. The flat was very clean and though the furnishings were a bit well used, they were comfortable. The bed ... we Americans are surely spoiled by our massive beds,but the double bed in the flat was small. To be fair here, I am 6ft. 3inches tall. We ended up taking the mattress from the fold up bed in the closet and laying it on the floor next to the "double" bed. Problem solved. We were happy and slept well! The neighborhood was great and the sea wall adjacent to the delightful court yard where the apartment sits....was awesome. The location would be hard to beat. Just a very short walk and you are strolling Quay/High Street listening to the best "buskers" in the known world. Countless restaurants, pubs, and shops await and the magic that is Galway is at your command. We would highly recommend Aoife's place and we would stay there again, and we hope to, in the future!
