The Space

Situated on a tree lined street, 10 minutes walk to the city, and Salthill seashore with its stunning prominade. The house has been renovated and designed by Maria using salvaged materials and antiques from many parts of Ireland, France and Italy, giving charachter and an eclectic atmosphere. Guests say it has the old world charm of an Irish country house, mixed with the quaintness of an old Parisian Hotel. Most rooms have a fireplace, and there is something mystical about soaking in an old clawfoot bathtub in front of an open fire, whose windows look out on the ruins of an old convent.

Guests can enjoy the privacy of their own lounge and small library where a full breakfast of their choice is served. However, most guests like to sit with us at our 9ft old pine kitchen table, having tea and homemade scones in front of the wood burning stove.

If the calendar is booked, it it just for the room listed which is a double, however, I have a second double which is in the photo line up. Mail me and I may be able to facilitate you. The facilities include multi-jet power shower's, wireless internet, with the use of a big-screen computer which doubles as a tv (supply of movies). There is a state of the art sound system which runs throughout the whole of downstairs.

Location is another key factor when staying at this beautiful home, as it is just 10 minutes walk to Salthill Prominade and also 10 mins walk to the restaurants and bar area of the city, (latin quarte etc)). Eyre Sq. and the centre is a 20 mins walk. Taxi's are widely available, are inexpensive and take 5 mins. The bus stop is close by and runs every 20 mins. I am also within easy walking distance of our wonderful university, and local golf club.

Galway is rrenowned as a cultural landmark, not just in Ireland but throughout the world. We host many festivals each year in literature, theatre, film, and have ongoing art exhibitions. As well as a wonderful museum, we have famous connections with James Joyce, and W.B.Yeats, and many hollywood movie stars have been spotted having a quiet drink and enjoying our wonderful traditional
music. For the brousers we have a vibrant open air farmers market, displaying the best of local produce and local arts and crafts. This is held outside the medieval St. Nicholas's cathedral.
There are day trips to the Cliffs of Moher, and the Aran Islands, Connemara and the Burren, which are truly worth a visit and will linger in your memory long after your trip.
