We enjoyed our two week stay in this house. It's a bit older but well kept and supplied. The location is excellent for coffee, grocery and public transportation. If you have kids there is a lovely playground a block up and over. It is also quiet and calm but very close to just about anything you need. Gergely was great, quick to respond and was easy to work with (we missed our flight and arrived a day late and spent two extra nights). I would suggest staying here, or in any rental he has, if you're in the area!

We loved to stay in Gergely house, it's very big and with all the amenities. Very flexible with the check in hours. We had a car which made access easier as the house is located about 10-15 minutes drive from Galway city centre. Gergely was very helpful even outside the country.

Hi - myself and my 2 friends stayed at the 'House in the Green near the Sea' for 2 days during the Galway Races this year. Obviously it was next to impossible to get a hotel room in Galway that week and the prices were unbelievably expensive so a friend suggested AirBnB and we found Gergely's place straight away. I found Gergely to organised and friendly and ended up meeting him out at the house in Knocknacarra to pick up the keys. The house is very comfortable and spacious with 3 bedrooms and has a nice backyard plus a beautiful little wooded area out the front that I am sure any child would love to run around and explore! The house isn't too far from Salthill prom and is in a nice residential area of Knocknacarra. It's just behind a row of small shops and is actually really secluded from the normal hustle and bustle of Galway! There is a nice supermarket around the corner called Joyce's and I made an epic breakfast the morning after Ladies Day with some of their homemade sausages and eggs so all my friends are welcome for that act of selfless generosity on my behalf! Leaving wasn't an issue either as Gergely called back to the house on the Saturday morning at 12noon (a time that suited us all) so yes I would highly recommend the house to anyone hoping to stay in 'City of the Tribes'!

Stayed at Gergo's house for 3 nights. Comfortable home with all amentities. Communication with Gergo was very easy by mobile phone or via airbnb. We had a car which made access easier as the house is located about 10-15 minutes drive from Galway city centre. Local pub is great!

We stayed at Gergo's placce during the Galway Races, when the town was a mad house. We were glad for a place to stay, and Gergo responded very promptly to our request. Extra kudos that he stayed on top of our communication exchanges while he was out of the country. Gergo's home is of an older vintage in a quiet neighborhood very close to the center. We recommend taking the bus to the center and back. The bus stops are very near to the house, and you avoid having to deal with parking. Gergo couldn't be nicer to deal with. He was extremely responsive and genuinely concerned about our well being while were his guests.
