Welcome to my beautiful home. Relax in wonderful surroundings, luxurious bedrooms and a delicious breakfast. My home is situated in a quiet, tree lined street just minutes from Salthill promenade or a short bus journey into Galway city. Sleeps 5
Welcome to my beautiful home where you will find all the comforts of home from home. My home is situated just 5 minutes walk from the beautiful Salthill Promenade. The bus stops outside my home which will take you to the city center in 10 minutes, or alternatively you can walk along the sea front and breath in the fresh invigorating Atlantic air!
So why not come and sample the delights of a truly unique city.....and a very warm welcome from Kathryn!!
I offer a complementary breakfast of juice, fresh fruit, eggs, cheese, meats, tea/coffee with homemade scones and preserves. There are laundry facilities available at a moderate fee. Although my calender may look as though I am booked, I have a second bedroom of the same standard which can be viewed in my photo lineup, so please contact me regarding availability. In addition, I have a single bedroom which is available for an additional guest/child in your party.
Interaction with Guests
I am at hand daily to help you with your vacation. I will supply you with maps, brochures and local knowledge. I also will tell about about the hidden gems of Galway known only to the locals!
My home is situated in the village of Salthill which has an array of coffee shops, restaurants and nightlife. The beautiful promenade runs to the oldest part of Galway, the Claddagh and from there to the Spanish Arch and the Latin Quarter of Galway.
The City offers a wonderful eclectic mix of restaurants, coffee shops, pubs and shops. In addition it is a medieval city with numerous walking tours, theaters, art galleries and all that Galway as the cultural capital of Ireland has to offer. At the weekend it hosts a farmer's market in front of the medieval St. Nicholas Church where you can meet the locals and tourists, the famous and not so famous in search of artisan food, jewellery and crafts.
For those looking for a more rugged landscape, Galway is the gateway to Connemara, renouned for its wild, beautiful and romantic scenery. There are many bus tours to take you to Connemara and the Arran Islands so a car is not a necessity. The cliffs of Moher are another 'must' and the tour bus company will collect you at my home. From Dublin Airport/City a non stop bus will get you to Galway in under 3 hours.
Other Things to Note
I have off street parking available for you.
This is a non smoking home. However, you may sit outside in my beautiful back garden if you wish to smoke...of on a wet day, the garden shed!
Please be respectful of other guests and my neighbours and keep noise at night time to a minimum.
Out of respect to my other guests and my family, please do not take showers after 11.00 at night as other people are sleeping!
Kathryn invited us into our home even though she had to go to her daughter's graduation. Everything went off without a hitch. The room was very nice. Would recommend.
Wir hatten diese Unterkunft relativ spontan gebucht und wussten deshalb nicht genau, worauf wir uns eigentlich einstellen sollten. Vor Ort erschien uns Salthill erst mal als eine ziemlich ruhige Gegend, fast ein bisschen zu ruhig. Aber dank Kathryns Tipps für Unternehmungen und Ausflüge, die wir gleich direkt nach der Ankunft bekamen, wurde es nie langweilig, die zwei Bustouren die wir machten starteten auch alle direkt vor der Haustür.
Die Unterkunft war wirklich schön, sehr gemütlich eingerichtet, und auch dass es zwei Bäder gab war für eine große Mädelsgruppe natürlich nur ein Vorteil ;)
Mit dem kleinen Hund freundeten wir uns auch sofort an, und auch das Frühstück war wirklich jeden Tag super lecker.
Außerdem war es echt cool, dass wir nach Anfrage auch zu sechst kommen durften!
Insgesamt hat es uns super gefallen und wir würden die Unterkunft auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen.
Liebe Grüße, Cathi, Ali, Ina, Mona, Wanda und Anja
This was the second time we had stayed with Kathryn - again a most delightful experience! The bedrooms and bathrooms were spotlessly clean, as well as nice and warm. Kathryn welcomed us most graciously and also made a delicious breakfast for us the next morning. If you're looking for a comfortable place to stay in Galway with a great hostess, stay with Kathryn!
Kathryn had a great home and was very helpful when we were making plans. She lives conveniently next to a bus station which made going into the city center really easy. It was a pleasure to stay with her and definitely would again!
The reservation was canceled 119 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

Hi my name is Kathryn! I am a mature student at my local University. I love to walk our beautiful promenade, hike in connemara, cycle around the city and attend my local gym. Galway is the cultural capital of Ireland and I am an enthusiastic follower of the theatre, the wonderful music scene and all that the arts have to offer. In my down time I cook, bake and spend enjoyable hours in my garden. I love to meet new and interesting people. My home is warm, welcoming and open to you. I look forward to meeting you, hearing about your life and culture...please come and visit and share your experiences with us!
