City Center view of bay and river.

Apartment - Private room · Dock Street, Galway, Galway, Ireland

The Space

You will love it. It is very close to the city center shops, restaurants, music venues and buskers. You get free parking. It is only a short driver from the Cliffs of Moher and Aran islands.

My 2 bed apartment, in my opinion, is the most amazing apt in Galway. Full stop. The penthouse view is something special to remember forever.

The room for rent has a king size memory foam luxury mattress and you will have your very own bathroom.

The apt is in the heart of the city and closest to the sea. And so not noisy at all.

I see my adventure on Airbnb more as a special home sharing experience with honest, truly interested people from around the world.

I am a not at all a B&B or hotel. But if you want to stay for a bit somewhere really lovely, a place that feels more like a home than a hotel, then mine is the place for you to enjoy just for a brief stay :)

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Really convenient walking distance to city center, beautiful apartment. Gary was helpful and friendly and even put eggs and milk in the fridge for us.

  • The Flat:
    I can say with some authority, this is definitely one of the nicest flats in the whole of Galway City.
    I know this because I have been in the market for some time trying to purchase a similar property. This would be my first choice if available.
    It is in a fantastic location with great views over the Claddagh Basin and Galway Bay. Sunsets (and sunrises!) are frequently spectacular.
    The decor, facilities and furnishing are all of good quality.

    There is no TV on offer and rather limited wifi access - but can I recommend you spend your time in Galway enjoying the city and surrounds. I enjoyed hunting down free wifi in many local bars and coffee shops.
    The bedroom can be a little chilly on a winter morning - In my experience, central heating is not great in any Irish apartments.

    Garry was a brilliant host. I have Galway origins and lots of family and friends who still live there but Garry introduced me to aspects of Galway life I wouldn't have otherwise experienced. His love of Latin style dance introduced me to new aspects of Galway social life.

  • The Place of gary is fantastic, nice view to the sea and very comfortable, the location is very good, really near to the city Center, the only problem is that there is No wifi in the rooms and that the place is quite cold all the time. Beside that all is good.

  • My stay with Gary was wonderful. He is a perfect host and he lives in a perfect apartment. It has large windows facing Galway Bay and the scenery is most beautiful. Gary is well traveled, so is very interesting to talk to. I highly recommend a stay with with him.

  • Staying with Garry was WONDERFUL! His apartment is in a great spot and has the most lovely views of the bay and city. The room was perfect, large clean and with an en-suite bathroom. Garry was a great host, very friendly and welcoming. We really did have just the best time and would 100% recommend staying with him - it could not have been a better few days :)
