We loved our brief stay with Geraldine and Pat. They are such warm, generous people and they made our short stay in Galway wonderful. Highly, highly recommended!
Geraldine lives in a nice and quiet neighborhood. As we had a rental car it was no problem for us to reach Galway city in about 10 minutes. Parking was neither a problem.
Geraldine´s house is nice and cosy like you expect and Irish home to be. We loved and enjoyed our stay with Geraldine. She made us felt the most welcome.
!!! She is the best host we have met so far because of her great personality !!! and we are so thankful, that we had the opportunity for some chats with her. Geraldine and her boyfriend Pat are the most lovable and most welcoming persons we have met on this island so far.
So we can totally recommend staying with her.
Everything whas perfect at Géraldine's house . Géraldine and Pat are verry friendly. The house and the bedroom are nice and confortable . Géraldine made un Irish breakfast every day for us with bacon, eggs, saussages, black and white pudding and it was verry delicious .Thank's a lot for thoses nices days.
Excellent séjour chez Géraldine ! Une belle rencontre avec une personne joyeuse et accueillante. Le petit déjeuner qu'elle prépare avec soin est varié et très copieux. Elle est toujours prête à aider pour trouver pubs, restaurants, spectacles et donner des renseignements pour les visites. La maison est située dans un quartier calme et bien situé pour la découverte du Connemara, la chambre est confortable et douillette. Elle fait son maximum pour parler français (nous ne parlons pas bien anglais). Ce séjour restera un très bon souvenir. Merci Géraldine !!
Hôtes très accueillants ! La chambre est spacieuse , la salle de bain également . Nous avons passé un très bon séjour.
Le logement dispose d un parking et se situe dans un petit quartier tranquille . Bref je conseille!
Our arrival was a bit difficult as it was late in the evening and it was raining cats and dogs. But finally we found our way to Geraldine who was waiting for us. The welcome was warm and we had a nice chat over a cup of tea.
The room was clean and nice, shower and wc just next to it. Enjoyed our sleep, as the neighbourhood is very quiet.
We got so many good tips for the next day which we spent in Connemara. Geraldine was really very helpful and gave us maps that helped us on our day trip in the lovely Connemara.
We felt very much at home and enjoyed our stay. We were especially thankful for all the kind attention Geraldine gave us.
Geraldine's guest house is a nice communal experience with plenty of privacy as needed. Her breakfast is fantastic! This location is perfect for enjoying the waterfront and the downtown area.

About the Host, Geraldine
Hi my name is Geraldine and I'm from Ireland. I love travelling and learning new languages and about new cultures. I have been all over Europe and also to Chile in South America, which I loved. I like all types of sport especially golf, which I play. There are great golf clubs nearby that I can give you information on. It is also a musical household, my son David plays several instruments and is involved in a local band. My children are grown up now so I have a couple of spare rooms in my house and thought I'd give Airbnb a go because I've heard great things about it. I hosted foreign students for years and really enjoyed the experience. Our household is happy, friendly and easy going. I would be delighted to have you stay with me and my family and to give you travel info about Galway and Ireland.
