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. 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... 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 was very welcoming. The house was lovely, clean and very comfortable. She also gave us great food suggestions and helped with reservations.
schönes Haus nicht weit von der City Galway! Die Übernachtung war mit Frühstück (bis 10 a.m.)! tiptope, saubere und schöne Unterkunft für sightseeing in Galway
Très agréable séjour chez Kathryn. Elle nous a tres bien accueilli, la chambre correspondait tout à fait à la description. Super petit déjeuner avec des petits pains faits maison et même du saumon.
Kathryn hat ein wunderschönes großes Haus. Mit dem Bus braucht man nur ca. 10 Min ins Zentrum von Galway. Wir wurden herzlich empfangen. Kathryn gab uns einen Stadtplan mit wertvollen Tipps für Besichtigungen, Essen und Musik.
Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und nett dekoriert.
Kathryn's house is a great place to stay, really close to the bus stop for the city centre. The room was big and clean. Recommended!
We stayed for 2 nights and had a great time at Kathryns place! She is very engaging and helped us with a lot of tips and documentation. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful. From the house, it's an easy walk of about 20 minutes along the seaside to the town center. And our daughters loved Maude, the dog :-)
