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 centre in 10 minutes or, alternatively you can walk in 30 minutes along the seafront. On arrival, I will endeavour to collect you at the bus/train station.
The house has wifi, cable tv and off street parking. My guests have access to the kitchen and all living areas. Also, if the sunshines you are more than welcome to use the BBQ. I offer a complimentary light breakfast of tea/coffee with homemade brown and white scones with preserves. There are laundry facilities available at a moderate fee. I have a second room of the same standard which can be viewed in my photo line-up so please contract me regarding availability.
My home is situated in the village of Salthill which has an array of coffee shops, restraunts and night life. The beautiful promenade runs to the olders part of Galway, the Claddagh and from there to the Spanish Arch and the Latin Quarter of Galway. The citry offers a wonderful eclectic mix of resterants, coffee shops, pubs and shops. In addition, it is a medieval city with numerous walking tours, theatres, art galleries and all that Galway as the cultural capital of Ireland has to offer. For those looking for more rugged landscape, Galway is the gateway to Connemara renouned for its wild, beautiful and romantic scenery. There are many bustours to take you to Connemara and the Arran Islands so a car is not essential. The Cliffs of Moher are another 'must' and the tour bus will collect you in Salthill.
From Dublin Airport and Dublin City a non-stop bus get you to Galway in under 3 hours! So why not come and sample the delights of a truely unique city and a very warm welcome from Kathryn!!
Guests have access to my kitchen where a beautiful breakfast awaits them each morning. In addition, they may sit in my sun room or in my lovely garden.

Kathryn a mis à notre disposition son agréable intérieur... "very cosy", associé à une belle touche décorative.
Hote sympathique et attentionnée, Kathryn nous a fait regretter de ne pas avoir consacré plus de temps à Galway et ses alentours qui méritaient mieux que notre courte halte.
Mer et restaurants à proximité.
Das war der mit Abstand beste Aufenthalt, den ich je irgendwo hatte!
Kathryn war immer seeehr zuvorkommend. Sie hat mich vom Bahnhof abgeholt und mir auf dem Weg nach Hause gleich eine kleine Stadtführung mit den wichtigsten Dingen (Bushaltestelle, Toristen Inforamtion, Orientierungspunkte, Weg in die Stadt, Gasthäuser, Einkaufsläden...) gegeben. Bei ihr angekommen bat sie mir gleich Tee und Weihnachtskekse an. Dann versorgte sie mich mit einem Plan von Galway, auf dem sie die wichtigsten Orte anstrich und mir nochmals den Weg, den wir gerade gefahren waren und all die genannten Dinge zeigte, auf die sie im Auto hingewiesen hatte. Darauf notierte sie mir auch gleich ihre Adresse, falls ich einmal mit dem Taxi nach Hause käme. Ich bekam noch weitere Prospekte von Sehenswürdigkeiten und Orten, die ich besuchen könnte.
Kathryn hat mich sogar einmal zu einer Apotheke gefahren, da ich starken Husten hatte und Medizin kaufen wollte. Am Abend zuvor hat sie mir auch eine Vitamintablette von ihrer Hausapotheke angeboten.
Ich verbrachte Silvester bei ihr und ihrer Familie. Kathryn hat mich zum Essen eingeladen, was mich sehr überrascht hat. Später hat sie mir erklärt, dass ihre Gäste nicht nur ein Bett und ein Frühstück bekommen, sondern eigentlich praktisch in ihre Familie "einziehen". Das ist auch spürbar. Nachdem ersten Willkommen fühlt man sich tatsächlich als Familienmitglied. Man kann tiefsinnige Gespräche führen, ihre Küche und Waschmaschine verwenden, einen Abend mit ihr vor dem Fernsehr verbringen und sich wirklich wie zu Hause fühlen.
Kathryn ist eine unglaublich nette, hilfsbereite, herzliche, liebenswürdige, kümmernde, interessierte und gelassene Frau.
Falls ich irgendwann nochmals nach Galway gehe, werde ich ganz bestimmt wieder bei Kathryn anklopfen!
Kathryn was a wonderful host. Her home was beautiful, and she cooked us a great breakfast in the morning. She also helped us figure out travel arrangements for the rest of our trip and gave us great directions on how to get to town and what to do when we were there. She was incredibly helpful and generous to us during our entire stay.
We had such a lovely time in Galway. Kathryn took a very last minute booking and she was so accomadating. The house was perfect. We were close to salt hill prom where we enjoyed walking in Saturday afternoon. It's a perfect spot to enjoy time in Galway city.
It was so nice to meet and stay with Kathryn! She was extremely welcoming, really friendly, and great to talk to. She also has a very sweet dog who was fun to play with! Her home is really lovely and is in an excellent part of town. It was only about a 5 minute walk down to the ocean where there were lots of great restaurants. And it's only a few minutes drive into the Galway City Centre. It was fantastic! I was only supposed to stay there one night but I enjoyed it so much, I ended up staying for two! Kathryn is very accommodating and a wonderful host. I would absolutely stay there again!
Great location in Salt Hill, 40 minute beautiful walk along the water to the city center. Room was clean and Kathryn was a great host!
Kathryn and her daughter Debbie were perfect hosts. It was great pleasure to stay there and get help when it was necessary. Everything was like in the description. Quiet place, near wonderful promenade. Best place to take a one day trip to Mohers, Connemara or Aran Islands. Moreover Kathryn was very kind and helped us to chose and order them. What is very comfortable, the trip operators could ease collect you from the place opposite her house.

Hi my name is Kathryn! I am a mature student at my local University. I love to walk our beautiful promenade, hike in connemara, cycle around the city and attend my local gym. Galway is the cultural capital of Ireland and I am an enthusiastic follower of the theatre, the wonderful music scene and all that the arts have to offer. In my down time I cook, bake and spend enjoyable hours in my garden. I love to meet new and interesting people. My home is warm, welcoming and open to you. I look forward to meeting you, hearing about your life and culture...please come and visit and share your experiences with us!
