2 double rooms in cosy family home

House - Private room · Newcastle Park, Galway, Galway, Ireland

Our spacious, recently renovated home has two double bedrooms available both with own bathrooms and wifi access. Parking is available along with access to large kitchen. 5 minutes walk to NUIG/UHG and just 10 minutes walk to city centre.

The Space

The house was built in the 1950's originally and then extensively renovated and extended in 2011. Old meets new in a spacious yet cosy family home. Parking is available but you won't need your car as all the main Galway attractions are within easy walking distance of the house.

Guest Access

There will be fridge, freezer and cupboard space made available in the kitchen for guests. You are welcome to cook in the kitchen as long as you clean afterwards! Lots of Books, DVDs and board games available for you to use during your stay. You can enjoy the garden space too if the sun shines on your visit.

Interaction with Guests

During the week I will be at work during the day but home most evenings to advise guests on activities to do in and around Galway.

The Neighborhood

The neighbourhood is a great mix of older residents, families and some students during the academic year. Everyone gets along well in this safe, friendly neighbourhood. You can walk to all the main attractions that Galway has to offer. There is also a great selection of places to eat near the house along with a small supermarket, butchers and late night pharmacy. There is a gym in the university grounds with pool, sauna, steam room and squash courts - you can pay to use facilities at designated hours.

Getting around

There are bus stops very nearby for the local city bus networks. The bus and train stations in eyre square are a 20 minute walk away or 5 minutes by taxi. There is a taxi rank around the corner from the house. There is bike rental close to the house too.

Other Things to Note

There is so much to do in Galway that you will find it hard to fit it all in! There are loads of festivals - the arts festival, the oyster festival, the races, comedy festival, film fleadh, visual arts, sailing and more. Entertainment options include the theatre, cinema, live music, dance classes, sporting activities, comedy nights, free talks and lectures and of course the great pubs and clubs the city has to offer. You can walk or rent a bike to explore the cities trails and head out to salthill to kick the wall.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Wonderful place to stay. Joanna was so nice and welcoming, her house is beautiful, clean and very spacious. Bedrooms are great size and very clean. Joanna was so nice and very easy to talk to. She was very helpful in giving us directions and giving us ideas on what to do/see. House is walking distance to city centre (10 min). I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Fantastic Host

  • We stayed at Joanna's place for about two days and it was absolutely wonderful. She was so nice and obliging to us. Her house is wide open and the rooms are very inventive - especially the bathroom with its big bathtub. She helped us with all our questions and is a great person. The house is just a few minutes away from Galway-City. We can highly recommend Joanna's place to everyone.

  • Joanna's place is fantastic! She wasn't able to be there when we arrived but check in was very smooth through her friend Liz. The place is huge and has an amazing kitchen. Also, the bathtub is a true treat. We highly recommend staying here!
