Cosy en-suite double bedroom in our quiet family home. comfortably fits two ,near to galway city centre , Salthill beach and Connemara .

The Space

En-suite double bedroom in our quiet smoke-free family home , located in a rural cul-de-sac on the outskirts of Galway city ..Just 5 minutes drive from Galway city centre / NUIG , also 5 minutes from Salthill . Ideally located for exploring Cliffs of Moher , the Burren , Connemara , the Aran Islands and west of Galway .
The room is located at the back of the house , it has a garden view . We have a half acre of well maintained garden and have free, private , off-street car parking ,and free wi-fi .
There are no street lights , so on clear nights you can enjoy viewing lots of stars . Our road overlooks Lough Corrib , and there are wonderful panoramic views .
There are no shops, restaurants or pubs on our road but these are all available a short drive away . As it is so peaceful you can be assured of a good night's sleep .
There is no convenient public transport , so a car is advisable
If you do not have a car , please contact us and we will arrange to collect you.
We also have a bedroom that would suit 2 children , and a wooden cot is available .
I bake my own bread , and can suit wheat-free and dairy-free diets , also vegetarians .
The family pet is a very friendly, affectionate cat .

  • Geraldine & Noel were wonderful hosts, friendly, welcoming, and generous with their hospitality. We stayed two nights and were greeted on arrival with a "cuppa", delicious home made cake, and a lengthy chat. Geraldine and Noel have good local knowledge and provide useful information on what to see and do.
    Our room was large and comfortable with ensuite included - both were immaculately presented. A great breakfast was provided too.
    Thanks for a most enjoyable stay, we both enjoyed your company.

  • Our stay with Geraldine and Noel was one of the best Airbnb stays we have ever had. We knew that the Irish are hospitable and welcoming but Geraldine and Noel take that to a new level. We were treated almost like royalty, nothing was too much trouble. Their home is comfortable, spacious and well appointed. They gave us excellent local knowlege on the best places to explore, Galway and the west coast was our favourite area in Ireland. We highly recommend a stay in their lovely home. Try their full Irish breakfast!

  • Geraldine and her husband Noel were wonderful hosts and were able to accept us at short notice which we were grateful for.

    When we arrived our room was freshly prepared (it's comfortable and quiet) and afternoon tea was ready for us in the sitting room, where we sat and had a nice chat and swapped travel stories.

    Zoe the cat is a sweetie and so are the hosts. We were thankful to have met them on our travels. Hopefully you're lucky enough to do the same!

  • Geraldine und ihr Mann sind ganz ausgezeichnete Gastgeber. Man fühlt sich gleich wie zuhause. Das Frühstück ist ausgezeichnet. Es gibt immer frischen Obstsalat und auch was Herzhaftes. Die beiden sind sehr freundlich und helfen einem bei der Reiseplanung, solange diese nicht vollständig ist. Auch Extra-Wünsche wie z.B. ein Handyladekabel oder Karten für den Connemara-National Park werden ohne wenn und aber bereitgestellt. DIe Austattung des Bades ist sehr modern und hochwertig. Besser als in manchen Villen in Dublin! Wir hatten wirklich einen unterhaltsamen, netten Aufenthalt :)

  • My husband and I had a wonderful stay with Geraldine and her husband. They were incredibly friendly and gave us wonderful suggestions for our night our in Galway. The room was clean and inviting. Also, the breakfast the next morning was delicious! We highly recommend staying with the Bretts if you find yourself near Galway.

  • We had a wonderful time with Geraldine and Noel. They are very welcoming and helped us a lot planning our visit to Galway and the Connemara.
    Their place is lovely and just a few minute drive from the center of the city. We highly recommend them to everyone who’d like to stay in Galway!

    Nous avons passé un excellent moment avec Géraldine et Noel. Il sont tous les deux très accueillants et nous ont beaucoup aidé à planifier notre visite de Galway et du Connemarra.
    Leur maison est ravissante et seulement à quelques minutes en voiture du centre ville. Je les recommande chaudement à tous ceux qui souhaitent se loger sur Galway!

  • Geraldine and Noel are wonderful hosts!
    Their place is nice, clean and cosy. They are very welcoming and gave us many advices about our journey in the Connemara and around the Cliffs of Moher (paths, sightseeings, where to eat or drink in Galway...).
    We enjoyed great conversations with them and their irish breakfast is perfect!
    We recommend them if you stay in Galway!
