Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great time at Geraldine's place - the room and ensuite were perfect (clean, tidy with modern amenities), very quiet and the breakfasts were fit for a king, we felt so spoilt. Her and her husband provided us with great advice and directions for travelling to the Aran Islands and Connemara and we enjoyed some lovely chats together. Geraldine was also happy for me to use her kitchen one evening. Would recommend this place to anyone and we will definitely stay here again if heading to the Galway area in future.

    Response from Geraldine:

    Thank you so much Helena for the lovely review . We really enjoyed hosting yourself and Dom

  • We had a most enjoyable, if brief, stay with Geraldine and Noel. Their home and our room was very comfortable, and most important of all, in a cold November, warm. With that wonderful big Irish breakfast, it felt like going home to “Mammy”. They were both very helpful in suggesting places to eat as we got in quite late. Thank you, Geraldine and Noel, for your warm welcome and hospitality.

  • We stayed with Geraldine and Noel in his home for a night. They are really friendly and attentive. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated and the bathroom was magnificent and spacious. Everything was really clean.

    But best of all was the hospitality of Geraldine and Noel. We were advised of a lot of places to visit and our conversation was very pleasant morning over breakfast with them talking about different subjects, although our English was hard to understand :)

    The breakfast was delicious with a lot of food. I will not forget the delicious chocolate muffins that Geraldine prepares herself.

    Without doubt the best accommodation of our stay in Ireland. We will stay with them on our next visit to Galway.

    Thank you for your hospitality.

  • We loved staying with Geraldine and Noel. We stayed two nights. They were so kind and helpful going out of their way to help us in a range of specific little ways that I won't go into. But I'd like to thank them publicly here because it made everything much easier.

    It's very reasonably priced too. Breakfast was great.: varied and plenty.

    It helped that we had a car. The GPS had the Rd built in so that was good. It's really easy to get to town from there... Specially with Noels fab directions about where to park. It's not too far with a car.

    But I can't imagine any place being better! Thanks Geraldine. And by the way we found real live rellies down Roscommon way. Not too far from Athlone! And the house where my great grandmother was born.
    Thank you.

    Hi Margaret , delighted you found some relatives :). Was your great grandmother born near Athlone ?
    We both loved hosting you and Joseph . Hope you will come back !
    Best wishes

  • We had a wonderful couple of days with Geraldine and Noel - fantastic, warm and thoughtful hosts - down to the last details. Room was great, spanking clean and spacious bathroom, scrumptious breakfast. We can easily and whole heartedly recommend them for a stay in the Galway area if you want a bit of peace and quiet.

  • We had a wonderful two-night stay in the Brett's home. Geraldine and Noel were terrific hosts - warm and hospitable. They really went out of their way to advise us on places and routes to take. The breakfast was amazing and the room/bathroom was spotless and very comfortable. We would have no hesitation in recommending them as hosts to anyone staying in the Galway area.

    Thanks Dave and Gail . Really glad you enjoyed your stay here .

  • Honestly, one of the best airbnb experiences I have had. Geraldine and her husband are amazing. We had to reschedule and they were extremely helpful and understanding with no extra cost. Everything was clean and spotless, location perfect for salthill and city and a day trip to conemara. The best part however was her own homemade buns and the unbelievable breakfast which consisted of fruit from their own garden and of coarse an amazing fry-up. I left the place feeling guilty and wondered should I have paid more. It seemed like these ppl genuinely do it to meet people. Amazing experience, thank you

  • Extraordinary stay at Geraldine&Noel's house!
    The home and the room were just perfect, with an ensuite bathroom.
    Geraldine made us amazing irish breakfasts...
    Everyday we talked a lot with Noel and Geraldine, they gave us indications for the places to visit and talk a lot about Ireland.
    We felt at home!
    It is the place to go in Galway (because it's really close to the centre)!

  • We had such a great time at Geraldine's home. Everything was perfect : the room, the brand new private bathroom, the location (really quiet but 5 min from the center of Galway) and Geraldine's amazing food! She made us cupcakes to welcome us and cooked us a great breakfast. Plus, her husband and her are very kind and friendly. We really felt like home.

    We highly recommend this place to everybody.
