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.

Amazing!!! Lovely hosts. So friendly and welcoming :) the house is lovely, luckily we both like red .
The breakfast was Out if this world! So much food and choice , was a lovely extra to the stay.
Would recommend to anyone!!!!
Had a quick but lovely stay with Kenneth and Kevin. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas and was very welcoming. Loved how close the house was to the center of town and they were very helpful in providing maps and directions to the best areas to explore.
We were running late for a tour the first morning but made sure to make time for breakfast the next morning. Glad we did as there was a lovely spread for breakfast and a great kitchen to enjoy it in.
Really nice location; peaceful and close to the city center. Room was perfect - even our own bed is not as comfortable as the one we had in this room. I personally had one of my best sleeps ever :) We stayed just one night but I'd gladly spend more nights there.
Also, our host, Kevin was really nice and helpful to us - he even picked us up from where we were when we had some confusion to find the correct address of the house.
Our two nights at ken and kev's home was incredible. Clean. Comfortable, and the holiday decorations got us in the mood for the season. We were greeted warmly, and were given details about where we were and where to go. We were a little leery of the private room experience, but this was more of a BnB experience - and as noted in other reviews the breakfast was out of this world. Great location highly recommend!!
I went to Galway with an old friend for a couple of days. My stay at Kenneth's and Kev's was absolutely fantastic! The location of this house was right off the main square in a quieter section. This was great for sleeping at night. It was a quick wall from the bus station and the town center of Galway. The house was extremely clean, smelled incredible, and had a nice homey vibe. Kenneth was easy to get in touch with prior to our arrival. He offered recommendations on where to go and had fresh water waiting by the bed for us. He even provided us with an umbrella for the unpredictable befall weather in Galway! We met Kev briefly who was equally as welcoming. I cannot even begin to describe the fantastic breakfast that awaiting my friend and I every morning. It was a beautiful spread of any food and beverage you could want. The music and the decor provided an atmosphere that allowed you to feel you were really on vacation and treating yourself. It was truly incredible. I recommend this place to anyone wishing to go to Galway or to do day yours around the area. You will not be disappointed!!
The room was exactly like shown on the pictures. The whole house was very clean and we really enjoyed our stay at Kevin and Kenneth's house. The breakfast was amazing and manifold. Thanks a lot guys.
We really enjoyed our stay at Kenneth and Kev's.The room was not large but perfectly adequate. It was very pleasantly decorated and water was left on our bedside lockers which was a nice touch. The house is located in close proximity to the city centre which is always a plus. We enjoyed a continental breakfast with ample choice of tasty treats.
