Hi all we have a gorgeous 4 bedroom house just 3 minutes to the heart of Galway City, "Eyre Square," and there is a great double room En-suite available for you!
Your room is a double, with a very comfortable be, with beside cabinets and lamps. We have 3 double rooms available in our house, so if you need more space please check out our other listings, thanks!
In the local area you will find everything you need for a great stay; there are supermarkets, shops, cafes, bars and restaurants all within walking distance of the house. We are also just 3 minutes to Eyre Square and the shopping centre there, which is full of shops and restaurants. The city is also packed with loads of tourist attractions, including the Spanish Arch, originally a 16th century bastion, which was added to Galway's town walls to protect merchant ships from looting, or Kirwans Lane, one the finest medieval lane ways in Galway, and is home to many bohemian styles cafes, restaurants, bars and craft-shops.
As well as exploring the city you can also enjoy the beautiful beaches and scenic drives that Galway has to offer. The Aran Islands are located about 30 miles from the mouth of Galway Bay, and are home to many wild birds and 430 different varieties of wild flowers and plants, and are worth a visit too!
Arty and bohemian, Galway (Gaillimh) is legendary around the world for its entertainment scene. Brightly painted pubs heave with live music on any given night. Cafés spill out onto winding cobblestone streets filled with a frenzy of fiddles, banjos, bagpipes, harps, tin whistles, guitars and bodhráns (hand-held goatskin drums), and jugglers, painters, poets, puppeteers and magicians in outlandish masks enchant passers-by. Actors in traditional Irish theatre tread also the boards around town.
Galway’s streets are steeped in history, yet have a contemporary vibe. Students make up a quarter of the city’s population, while the remains of the medieval town walls lie between shops selling Aran sweaters, handcrafted Claddagh rings, and stacks of secondhand and new books. Bridges arc over the salmon-filled River Corrib, and a long promenade leads to the seaside suburb of Salthill, where at night the moon’s glow illuminates Galway Bay, where the area’s famous oysters are produced.
The city’s smorgasbord of eating and drinking options ranges from the market – where farmers in Wellington boots unload soil-covered vegetables – to adventurous new restaurants redefining Irish cuisine. Sprawling superpubs with wooden staircases serve frothy Guinness, Galway Hooker ale and Irish coffees.
Even by Irish standards, Galway is renowned for its rainfall. This is a city where locals don’t say ‘It’s forecast to rain tomorrow, ’ but rather more dubiously, ‘It’s not forecast to rain until tomorrow.’ To be fair, you can be lucky with the weather, and on a sunny day the city is positively hopping. But the rain scarcely dampens Galway’s atmosphere, which is exuberant at any time of year – and especially during its myriad festivals.
Galway is often referred to as the most ‘Irish’ of Ireland’s cities (and it’s the only one where you’re likely to hear Irish spoken in the streets, shops and pubs), but some locals lament that these may be the last days of ‘old’ Galway before it absorbs the effects of the country’s globalised economy. But for now at least, Galway remains true to its spirited roots.

Lovely house, great hosts and awesome breakfast. Really close to Galway city center.
Amazing! Beautiful Townhouse, elegant spread for breakfast (rivals Ritz-Carlton!) short walk to Center-City/Eyre Square shopping & music, & wonderful gracious hosts who took care of absolutely everything we could need-from laundry to wrapped cheese & crackers & scones for day-trips to Kylemore Abbey & Cliffs of Mohr. We loved it! Thank you Ken & Kev!
Ken and Kevin were extremely welcoming hosts, and made our stay in Galway comforting and enjoyable. My girlfriend and I stayed one night in the en suite room, which was very clean and thoughtfully apportioned (showering essentials, water on the bedside table, WiFi info, etc.). Breakfast included a range of options, and was quite tasty. The location can't be beat: quiet, but only a couple minutes' walk from the heart of the city. Ken and Kevin also recommended an excellent restaurant for dinner (thanks!). If returning to Galway we'd definitely try to stay here again.
Decided to stay with Kev and Kenneth after seeing all of the positive reviews. The stay surpassed every expectation. Received 5 star service from the moment we arrived. We were provided with a disk to park our car. Location was within three minute walk to Eyre square. The room was perfect. Everywhere was spotless and had a beautiful ambiance. Perfect for a couples retreat. Breakfast was out of this world and we could not believe this was included in the price as the selection and quality outweighed that of the majority of hotels. Overall a bargain. 5 star hotels would find it hard to provide such a service for such a good price.
Kenneth and Kev were great! The location of their home is perfect, 5 minute walk to the heart of Galway! Our room was lovely and all amenities were provided. Kev provided us with suggestions on where to go and visit as well as where we could hear traditional Irish music (which was fantastic)! Next time we are in Galway we will definitely stay there again!
We had a lovely weekend in Kevin and Kenneth's beautiful home. We were made to feel so welcome. Our bedroom was gorgeous, really comfortable and spotless. Breakfast was delicious and included in the price. We also had free parking which is such a bonus in Galway city.
Kenneth and Kev were wonderful hosts who made sure we had everything we needed. The location is perfect as it's close to the city centre, you can walk everywhere but it's really quiet. The room is stunning with no detail left unplannaed and the breakfast they laid out for us was incredible. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone.
