Brain is an excellent host, super helpful getting us parked and checked in. The location is also great, a short walk from many of Galway’s main attractions. The room was clean, comfortable, and homey, the best night of sleep I had on my trip.

This home is located about 10-12 min walk to downtown Galway. We felt safe in the area, the room was clean, and Brian was quick to communicate with us. Short taxi ride to bus and train station as well. Thanks for the stay, Brian.
