Galway is one of the most chilled out spots in Western Europe. Despite being a city, it feels like a big town with its easy attitude and cool bohemian vibe. Known as the City of the Tribes, after the 14 affluent tribes who ruled during the middle ages, this thriving city is the most westerly in Europe and enjoys a strong artistic heritage and a flourishing arts, music, theatre and film scene. Summer in Galway is a never-ending stream of excellent festivals, with eating, drinking and entertainment all taking place outdoors in the balmy air of this warm-hearted city. Enjoy the atmospheric pubs in this West of Ireland city with its beautiful location at the edge of Galway Bay, its pretty medieval streets and its lively weekend markets for a city break you’ll never forget.

  • Geraldine was a lovely host! She was pleasant and hospitable, and even provided breakfast in the morning! Geraldine made me feel like Galway was a home away from home! The bus system also made it easy to get from Geraldine's home to the center of town.

  • I do not have enough positive things to say about my experience! Geraldine is a perfect host... From being welcomed with tea and scones to being offered breakfast each morning to all the little conversations in between... I felt like I was part of the family.

    As a female, solo-traveler, I could not have asked for a better way to spend my time in Galway!!

    The house is a 2 minute walk from the bus that goes right into the heart of Galway, making it easy to see everything I wanted during my visit.

    Thank you, Geraldine!

  • Geraldine and her family have been WONDERFUL! I couldn't imagine a better place to stay in Galway.
    They've been so welcoming and so present for me during my time there!
    The house is very clean and quite close from the city, in a calm area, which is perfect.
    I felt secured and surrounded, thanks to her and her family. If I need to come back to Galway, I would definitely sleep here.

    I would recommend this place to everyone, without any doubt.

  • The welcome was very warm, I have immediately felt very at home. All I wanted to know was explained to me and shown. I was spoiled and we had a lot of fun together. I have made ​​friends.
    I will definitely come back again.
    The bus service in the city is very good, so you can do and see without a car lot.
    For me it was also important to Barna Woods and to be able to reach the sea on foot, and that was very possible.

  • Geraldine was a wonderful host. I hadn't been to this part of Galway before so was pleased to spend a few days there. Geraldine was very welcoming and made me feel at home and relaxed right away. We found out that our sons were in to music so talked about that (two proud parents) a good deal and even got so meet her son - who I am hoping to see perform this week. Yet again a great AirBnB experience.

Hi my name is Geraldine and I'm from Ireland. I love travelling and learning new languages and about new cultures. I have been all over Europe and also to Chile in South America, which I loved. I like all types of sport especially golf, which I play. There are great golf clubs nearby that I can give you information on. It is also a musical household, my son David plays several instruments and is involved in a local band. My children are grown up now so I have a couple of spare rooms in my house and thought I'd give Airbnb a go because I've heard great things about it. I hosted foreign students for years and really enjoyed the experience. Our household is happy, friendly and easy going. I would be delighted to have you stay with me and my family and to give you travel info about Galway and Ireland.
