Geraldine is a most charming and welcoming host. A cup of tea and home made scones after a long day's driving really makes you feel at home. Breakfast was great, bedroom clean and cosy. Great place to stay.
To start: The decision to stay the days between Christmas and New Years Eve with Geraldine in her home was the best I ever experienced. In spite of mostly bad weather during these days we felt completely warm in both meanings: the welcoming and hearty care, which let us feel like part of the family - and the cosy fireplace, which awaited us after a day with rain and storm.
To continue: The room and private bathroom were great and according to the description.
We had every morning a table prepared with lovely breakfast and all items we needed. We enjoyed the chats over a cup of tea including fresh scones, accompanied with "homemade" music, the lovely cat, the fantastic deadpan humor of Pat.
To end: I recommend this home entirely.
We were met with the warm Irish welcome we had hoped for.
Staying with Geraldine, Pat and David was like staying with long lost family. The room and private bathroom were great and we felt very much like we were at home.
Lovely breakfast and great chats over a cup of tea, including fresh scones. A real stand out host and experience.
Galway is gorgeous, we had great recommendations from our hosts and loved having a car to easily access the city and cruise around the cost.
Highly recommended! !
My stay with Geraldine was just perfect! My travel partner and I could not have asked for a better stay. We had to book last minute due to unforeseen complications and Geraldine responded very quickly. I felt completely at ease in her home and she truly showed us a fantastic time in Galway. We had a lovely time chatting and getting to know each other! I would recommend Geraldine in a heartbeat.
Geraldine is just the perfect host. Very nice and friendly made us feel at home in the beautiful city of Galway. The room is cozy and very well equipped (There is water pipe in the bedroom, very useful! :) . Breakfast was delicious...
Geraldine was a wonderful host. She was very friendly, welcoming and she told us about some nice places to see. We enjoyed the breakfast and the conversations with Geraldine and her family. The house was beautiful and clean and near the city center.
We had such a nice time in Galway and we would highly recommend this place.
C'est surement l'endroit que nous avons trouvé le mieux. Géraldine est une femme au grand cœur, genereuse, accueillante, d'une gentillesse exceptionnelle. Maison impéccable, agréable , dans un quartier calme. Les petits déjeuners sont tres copieux et bons et en plus elle fait de gros efforts pour parler notre langue. Super Géraldine !!!!!!
Staying here was like staying with family! We could not recommend staying with Geraldine any higher.
Geraldine was a wonderful host. She and Pat stayed up late into the night to accommodate our check-in (our plane arrived pretty late). Then, the next morning they got up early to get us gluten-free food because the previous evening we mentioned a gluten allergy. They really went above and beyond to make us feel at home.
Geraldine was a pleasure to chat with. She was very friendly and welcoming and had lots of great suggestions about what to do around Galway. We also had a great time hanging out with Pat and Dave once we got home in the evening.
The house was beautiful, very clean and warm. The neighborhood was very safe and quiet. It was the perfect base for exploring western Ireland, including Cliffs of Moher. We had a great stay here and would highly recommend this place.
Geraldine is a hearty and very welcoming host. She made us feel at home and was always good for advice. Her place was in a great location, near the beach and not to far out of town (nearest bus station is a 2 min walk from her house). The house was always clean and tidy, and we were very happy that we could use her kitchen and washing machine. We would definitely recommend staying with her!
To start. Geraldine has to be one of the sweetest people on the planet.
Stay with her. She was so kind. Every morning she had a wide variety of breakfast items and she even let have use of her kitchen which was so sweet. She told us about some wonderful places to see and do and her home is very conveniently located, right off a bus route into the city center.
My boyfriend and I felt welcomed and appreciated! Our stay was just terrific! It was as though we were staying with a sweet aunt. we were made to feel right at home.
I would recommend her 100%!!
