Welcome to my beautiful home where you will find all the comforts of home from home. My home is situated just 5 minutes walk from the beautiful Salthill promenade. The bus stops outside my house which will take you into the city center in 10 minutes or alternatively you can walk along the sea front and breath in the fresh invigorating Atlantic air!
I offer a complimentary breakfast of juice, fresh fruit, eggs, tea/coffee with homemade brown and white scones and preserves There are laundry facilities available at a moderate fee. Although from the calender it may look as though I am booked, in fact I have a second room of the same standard which can be viewed in my photo lineup, so please contact me regarding availability. In addition, I have a single bedroom which is available for an additional guest/child in your party.
My home is situated in the village of Salthill which has an array of coffee shops, restaurants and night life. The beautiful promenade runs into the oldest part of Galway, the Claddagh, and from there to the Spanish Arch and the Latin Quarter of Galway.
The city offers a wonderful eclectic mix of restaurants, coffee shops, pubs and shops. In addition, it is a medieval city with numerous walking tours, theaters, art galleries and all that Galway as the cultural capital of Ireland has to offer. At the weekend, it hosts a farmer's market in front of the medieval St. Nicholas' Cathedral where you can meet the locals and tourists, the famous and not so famous in search of artisan food, jewellery and crafts. For those looking for more rugged landscape, Galway is the gateway to Connemara, renouned for its wild, beautiful and romantic scenery. There are many bus tours to take you to Connemara and the Arran Islands so a car is not a necessity. The Cliffs of Moher are another 'must' and the tour bus will collect you at my home. From Dublin Airport and Dublin City a non-stop bus gets you to Galway in under 3 hours! So why not come here and sample the delights of a truly unique city...and a very warm welcome from Kathryn!!

Kathryn est très accueillante, agréable et patiente pour communiquer malgré notre Anglais médiocre. Sa maison est très belle et idéalement située pour visiter Galway et sa région. Les petits déjeuners sont bons, copieux et servis sur une très belle table Irlandaise. Très bons conseils pour les visites.
A réserver sans hésitation.
We had a great stay at Kathryns place! She is very friendly and easy going and helped us out with every question we had! She also gave us great advice for our further travel. The house is beautiful and the room and bed very comfy. I highly recommend to stay at her place!
Kathryn's home is very welcoming. House is located in the western part of the town a few blocks from the beach. You can walk to city center probably in 20-25 minutes as well. It is very convenient for families as well.
Kathryn is very responsive and helpful during our stay.
Kathryn was a very gracious host and provided us with lots of information on local attractions, restaurants etc. She was a delight to deal with. The house was very comfortable and in a good location. Breakfast was delicious. We very much enjoyed our time at Kathryn's lovely home - our only regret was that the weather wasn't better so that we could enjoy the lovely backyard!
Kathryn was a wonderful host and the house was just beautiful. Highly recommend. She is very knowledgable of the local area and brekkie was lovely. Make sure you say hi to Maude the dog too.
We loved our 3 night stay with Kathryn in Galway. Great hospitality, quiet area, comfortable room and a wonderful breakfast to start the day. Good location with bus stop outside the front door. We enjoyed our conversations with Kathryn.
