Sheila is such a welcoming and friendly person. I felt totally comfortable and at ease. Really helpful even offering to pick me up from the station as it was raining and going out shortly after I arrived to buy some ginger tea as I'd said I liked it. She also has a tremendous local knowledge. The room is cosy and overlooks the park. I was very comfortable. The location couldn't be more central. Everything is within walking distance. I absolutely loved it and would highly recommend.

Sheila is a fantastic hostess! She has a lovely house in a great location for visiting Galway. The room is small, but clean, neat and more than adequate. The personal attention to meeting the needs of her guests is great! She got up very early and went out of her way to make sure I got to the bus station safely in the rain. I would definitely stay there again!

Lovely warm house just metres from the river, but walking distance to restaurants and pubs. Delicious breakfasts. This was my first airbnb stay and I felt as comfortable as in my own home. The cosy bedroom has everything you need to settle in, and the nights were quiet and restful.

I had a very nice stay at Sheila! She was very accomodating, caring and friendly. Her house is authentic and very well located for the city centre and the University. I will come back for sure!

This place was great. It was close to everything. It was clean and the house was quiet, which is all I need. Being close to the city center there were some loud people outside, but that's not Sheila's fault. Breakfast was also very nice.

Hi, I’m Sheila and I was born in this house, built by my great grandfather in 1887. Though I have a degree in Textile Design and teach art, my passion is
ecology/environment. I am co-founder of Green Sod Ireland, working to establish WildAcres across Ireland to create safe habitats, vital for biodiversity. I am vegetarian, an animal lover and though I’ve always had dogs I how have two rescued cats. I love the Visual Arts, reading and good food…… I’m easy-going and enjoy meeting new people, so looking forward to welcoming you to Galway. It’s a lovely city, more like a small town, full of culture and craic.
