Interaction with Guests
Guests will be welcomed on arrival and made to feel at home. While the apartment is a self contained unit,we live in the main part of the house. I will be available at all times during guests stay.
Our neighbourhood has a significant amount of wildlife to be seen despite its proximity to the city centre. A pair of swans build their nest each year in the nearby river. A resident heron also is to be seen here at all times of the year.
Getting around the city is no problem as we are situated so close to the centre. To see the surrounding countryside there are a number of companies operating daily tours. Information on these is available in the apartment.
It was great. We were there for Saint Patrick's day and the location was perfect. William our host was even kind enough to accommodate a late checkout. Great host, place, and location!
Cozy, well furnished, very relaxing place to stay. Less than five minutes walk to city center and the Latin Quarter, walking distance to the train. We walked up, William welcomed us and showed us the Wool Shop, pointed out a few pubs, and we were set for Galway.
El anfitrión nos trató muy bien, vino a preguntarnos si necesitábamos algo. La verdad es que tuvimos un trato excelente y la casa es como se ve en el anuncio. La casa está cerca de la zona central, 5 minutos caminando o menos!
Bill was very nice, and provided all the amenities we needed. It was a great little place in a perfect location ideal for walking around the Galway City Center.
I had a great stay at The Old Wool Shop! The apartment was very comfortable and the location couldn't be more ideal. Even though it is close to everything in town, the bedroom is very quiet and cozy.
Excellent location-- less than 5 minute walk to Shop Street, with the train station was less than 15 minutes away. Very quiet place--the bedroom backs up to academic buildings and a historic canal, which was ideal for peaceful slumber. A particularly comfortable place to spend the night.
Place is modern, with a lot of amenities--including nice coffee, and soft linens and towels. William, the host, was excellent to work and everything was better than promised. Definitely makes the go-back list!
What a great place to stay and see the city. Quiet street and close to everything, cozy little place with everything you need. Michael was very nice and quick to respond and help with things.
