The Space

Our appartement is idealy located in the heart of Galway, where all the "craic" is. The large window in the living room looks right out onto High street, it gives the flat a very special atmosphere. Street musicians playing and people passing by all day long, you will never get bored with listening and watching them! More than one got addicted!!!

You will appreciate the proximity of sightseeing, shopping center and pubs. Despite that you will be surprised not to hear lots of noise from the room, a moment of rest is always welcome after everything you are going to do!
You need to be aware though that we live right upon a busy street so if you are looking for peace and quiet it's not the right place for you!!! :)

You will stay in a double bedroom, ideal for couples or friends, that means complete privacy day and night time if you need it. The bathroom will be shared though. Feel free to use what you need like the kitchen (coffee and tea available as well) or chill in the living room, we'd love to know your story and share a glass of vino!

If you have any questions, we'll be happy to give you as much help as we can to have a fabulous time in this lovely little town. We have our favourite places and we will be delighted to share them with you!

  • Had a great stay! Amazing location, right in the center of anywhere you'd hope to be. Emilie was out of town during our stay, but Daragh (email hidden). Made us feel right at home!

  • Emilie and Darragh are delightful. The location can't be beat, especially if you're shopping and want to occasionally return to put down your stuff, then go out for more craic (good times). We recommend their place highly.

  • Darragh and Emilie are excellent hosts. They have a lovely flat, in great central location and are both very generous and welcoming people. The apartment is very clean and well set up and in their living room there is a wonderful nook to sit for hours and watch the activities down below! Claddagh Bay is only a 10 minute walk from here, which is well worth the visit. If we had the opportunity to visit Galway again we would definitely choose to stay with them. Thank you so much for your hospitality- you are definitely what one hopes for when staying with AirBnb!!

  • El apartamento está situado en un lugar muy céntrico de Galgway, pudiendo trasladarte a pie por toda la ciudad. Galway es una ciudad bonita y el apartamento agradable y tranquilo. Hemos pasado unos días estupendos y la acogida y el trato de Emilie y Darragh ha sido inmejorable. Son simpáticos y amables. Muchas gracias por vuestra atención.

  • Emilie and Darragh were lovely hosts of this beautiful apartment in Galway! The location is probably the best that you can find if you were looking for a place to enjoy the busy night life of a small Irish city. Really great place to stay for a few nights, with super friendly and respectful hosts! Highly recommended!

  • Great location to see and feel (website hidden) is as described. Emilie and Darragh were available when needed. I recommend a visit to the heart of Galway city center.

  • My son and I stayed with Emilie and Darragh for a couple nights at the end of May. Emilie warned us that the room and double bed were small, but despite the fact that my son and I are both over 6 feet tall, we managed to sleep comfortably in the spare room.
    Emilie and Darragh were warm and friendly hosts and we enjoyed our conversations with them in the mornings. They also provided good advise on things to see and restaurants and pubs to visit. The apartment location can't be beat if you are looking to enjoy the vibrant night life of Galway.

  • We had a very nice time in Emilie's place. She even left pastries for us in the morning!

  • We didn't really enjoy our Stay in Emilies home. In this three day when we were in Galway, we only saw her once for about two minutes. The flat smelld of joint smoke. In the evening the house was full of very drunk and noisy friends. It wasn't really comfortable.

    We loved the city Galway, thats why we loved our Stay anyway.

    Sorry Emilie to say that.

    Response from Emilie/Darragh:

    Wow! what a terrible review :( I feel like I have to answer to that... Like I say in my profile Galway is the best city to live in, it's full of joy, happiness and fun! And most of people around the world come here to find that :) Sorry you couldn't find it with us.. I'm sorry as well about my friends on the Friday night of your stay but they came over to celebrate my birthday, it was a nice surprise! (until 11pm though I was working at 6am the Saturday!) and I would have been so glad you joined us to share this moment... but it's very difficult to interact when the guests seem to want to keep their privacy staying in their room, I totally respect that though. Concerning the smell of smoke I've never hidden that I allow people to smoke (even if I don't myself) and in total fairness some people I chatted with prefered to find somewhere else to stay, no big deal, it's understandable :) Thank you because I've learned now that I will be more careful and insist on these points with my future guests and on my profile!!
