About This Listing
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.

We stayed only 1 night, but it was a great experience! Their house is more than beautiful and the ensuite we stayed in was extremely comfortable and cozy. The room was exactly like shown on the pictures, completely astonished for the cleaness and the amenities. We had a wonderful welcome, they gave us a lot of information about the city and they are very friendly and helpful. This is the BEST place to stay, and a very short walk to the city, five minutes. We have had a wonderful breakfast, with great quality and with a lot of choice. We will definitely return in Galway to visit Connemara National park and we will return back to them!
What a superb experience: a gem of house and insuite room in a top level neighborhood, very quiet and, at the same time, close (5 minutes walking) to Eyre square and the city center of Galway.
Ken was extremely kind in helping us with our luggages and providing all the info about the room, the house and the city. The room was cozy, spotless (maybe it just looks a little bigger in the picture) and perfect in every single detail. The morning after we had the incredible surprise of a 5-star superior breakfast: a classy dining room just for my girlfriend and myself, fully equipped with tens and tens of sweet and savory options to choose from: so astonishing that we had the feeling of daydreaming. I cannot imagine a better option for staying when visiting the vibrant city of Galway. Thanks!
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!
