Tracey nous a très bien accueilli dans sa maison située dans un quartier calme, à 2 min de la mer et 5 min des restos. L'ambiance cosy de sa maison et de la chambre nous a séduit et c'est un très bon point de chute pour visiter Galway et ses alentours. Merci à elle pour sa gentillesse!
We arrived later and were met by Tracey who was going out. The unit was a little hard to find, 2 streets in 1 and signs a little hard to see. Tracey showed us to our room, the shared bathroom and gave an overview of the kitchen. Tracey has a number of cats that have adopted her and stay in the house. The house is close to the beach and parking is available a short distance from the house . Tracey offered us advice re entertainment in Galway and we had a great evening listening to an Irish band at one of the pubs.
Tracey's house is as charming as she and her kitties! Right by the beach and a short walk to Galway city center. Perfect place for everything!
We had a really nice and uncomplicated stay at Traceys house. Tracey was really friendly and easy to communicate with. She gave us a lot of good advices where to eat and what to see in Galway. I loved our little room and how everything was so lovely decorated.
Would definitely stay here again!
We didn't have a chance to meet Tracey in person but our staying was perfect. Tracey has lovely house with a friendly cat. House is located right next to the sea. Room is so gorgeous and so irish! The bed is really comfortable and overall atmosphere is great. I absolutely recommend this house.
Tracey was a great host. We arrived later than initially appreciated, however she waited for us. Great room and really nice place. Perfect for our one night stay. Nice micro-brewery around the corner too. Would recommend Tracey's place to others visiting the area. Cheers.
A friend and I stayed at Tracey's place for two nights. Her home has a nice cottage feel to it - complete with cute cats! We didn't get too much time to spend talking with Tracey, but she seemed to be really great for suggestions when we talked to her briefly. She was very nice. The room we stayed in was very quaint, the bed wasn't all too comfortable (you can feel the springs) but it did the job for our short trip. The house is literally a 45 second walk to the water, which is beautiful. It is about a 15/20 minute walk into the center of Galway, but it is very easy to find your way there and back. Overall it was a nice stay. My only suggestion is to let her know if you want to shower at night (or plan to shower in the morning). It is really not a big issue, but the hot water is on a timer and turns off in the afternoon. Tracey seemed more than willing to keep it on for us if we had told her but we didn't know to. Just something we were unaccustomed to.
