Our house, in an old neighbourhood surrounded by nature, lies in the heart of the city, with the Townhall Theatre around the corner and within sight of the Salmon Weir. Ideal location for exploring Galway's shops, pubs, restaurants and nightlife, also the University campus, NUIGalway and Black Box Theatre.

The space

This location is also an ideal starting point for a riverside walk all the way to the famous Salthill Promenade.
The room is a bright single room overlooking a small park. Character and charm, with comfort and a great location.

Guest access

Facilities include wifi, street parking, cooking facilities (vegetarian kitchen only). Help yourself to tea/coffee, cereal, bread, fruit etc. In the evening if you wish to stay in, you can warm up by the turf stove. The bathroom is shared. There is a wide range of books and magazines for you to enjoy.

Interaction with guests

I am happy to tell you some local history of our beautiful city and the river. Galway has some wonderful restaurants such as Ard Bia at Nimmos and Kai Café within easy walking distance, while Tigh Neachtins and The Beirhaus are great for a pint. The Galway Market beside St Nicholas Church is worth a ramble through on Saturdays.

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.

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.
