Eugene's place is right in the center of town and an easy walking distance to many of Galway's attractions. The check-in process was very easy (Eugene sent a detailed message a few days in advance with the necessary information), and we were able to park in the Cathedral's parking lot for 4 euro a day, which was only a quick 5 minute walk from the apartment. The kitchen was also fantastically stocked, which we loved as we made most of our meals at the apartment. We would absolutely stay at Eugene's place again!

The location was perfect. Parking is difficult in Galway. If you are elderly carrying large suitcases up one steep flight of steps is difficult.

Thanks Martin. It was a pleasure having you.

This is an excellent spot for couples or 1-2 people who want to explore everything Galway city center has to offer. It's right in the middle of the action but isn't too loud. There are a number of parking lots nearby, but free overnight street parking on the weekend is also possible. Eugene was a great communicator and the spot was clean and well-furnished upon our arrival. The description and listing is spot on and would certainly recommend.

Response from Eugene:
Thanks Jeffrey. I love to hear that people feel that they've gotten what they expected and that the property serves as a great base for them to explore the city. It was a pleasure to have you stay. All the best.

We loved our stay in Eugene's apartment! The location was perfect with many shops and restaurants to be found in every direction. Eugene made it easy for us in every way - from detailed instructions at check in/check out and a small book filled with suggestions of his favorite restaurants/pubs, hot spots, and day tours. We look forward to staying with Eugene on future trips back to Galway!

Eugene is a first rate host. His flat is super clean and very well organized. It's small, but the space is used effectively and efficiently. We had a small issue with the shower and Eugene was instantly available to get it fixed. I can't rave enough about his guidebook. READ IT AND DO EVERYTHING ON IT. You will not be disappointed!
Eugene User ProfileEugene is a superhost.
Response from Eugene:
Thanks Craig. I take great pride in my guidebook to be honest. When I travel, I love nothing more than getting all the inside information on the best places to eat and drink. So naturally, that's what I want to do for my guests too! The guidebook is a huge plus for a lot of my guests because they don't have to keep asking me for recommendations. They can just browse the many places I've chosen, read the short summary and make a decision for dinner! :) It was a pleasure having you Craig and I'd be more than happy to welcome you back again in the future. All the best.

Eugene was a great host with prompt responses to any questions. The apartment is in a great location close to shopping, public transport, tour buses, great restaurants and a number of historical sites are within walking distance. The apartment itself was clean and cosy, warm, comfortable and homely. It has good quality fittings and i was happy to call it home for 10 days. I would definitely stay again if i am lucky enough to come back someday.

I love my city. The food here is vibrant and exciting, the arts are everywhere and the atmosphere is laid back and friendly.
I know every restaurant in town, so tell me what you like and I can recommend a place.

My life motto: "You're not promised tomorrow. So make today count."

My family has been letting property for over 30 years so we like to think we know a thing or two about making people feel welcome and comfortable.

Generally, I take a hands-off approach to hosting. I'll be in touch before you arrive to ensure you know where you're going. When you arrive, you'll be able to collect the keys using instructions that I'll send you. Of course, someone is available immediately if you have any questions or troubles during your stay.

I'm an easy going traveller. I prefer a bit of spontaneity and don't like to plan things too much. A bit of personality, hospitality and humour go a long way with me.

Some of my favourite places to visit include Barcelona, Amsterdam and the Netherlands in general, Berlin, Munich, London and Paris.

India, Vietnam, Japan and South Korea are next on my list!
