  • Great apartment, AMAZING central location... quaint, comfortable and a perfect home base for exploring Galway. Eugene communicated very well and showed us a brief tour of the apartment when we arrived which was very helpful. The apartment is very tidy and welcoming. Washer and dryer are convenient in the kitchen. There is no TV but we kept very busy with all the sights of the city and didn’t need one anyway ☺ We loved Galway and wish we had more time there!

  • The apartment is a quaint, efficient, and peaceful little nest located in the heart of Galway. It has been quite tastefully updated, and the view out the bedroom window offers much character. It’s easily accessible to both the train and bus, and also an easy walk to the Latin Quarter and the Salt Hill Promenade. Eugene was excellent at communicating and being available as needed. We appreciated his sincere welcome. Galway had many charms---especially the Saturday Market, the music at St. Nicholas Collegiate Church, trad music at the pubs, the River Corrib---two days was not nearly enough!

  • Eugene was amazingly communicative and kind. The apartment garnered nothing but envy and adoration from myself and my travel companion. Well appointed with some design elements that I recommended to my friend back home for his remodel. I loved the floors and the AMAZING use of space. You want central? This is central!! A few nights out, were met with the joy of short walks back to the apartment. I choose this place for its amenities, and it's location and they really out did themselves on both counts, so when you add Eugene's sincere and exstremely helpful demeanor, it all just made Galway a very special leg of my journey, at a really great price!! If/when I'm ever back in Galway I'll definitely be praying this is available!!

  • This apartment really is the cat's pajamas, & Eugene has made it warm & welcoming & the perfect foothold with which to explore Galway. It's fun, cosy, pristinely clean & feels secluded despite being bang in the middle of town. A perfect Valentine's hideaway. Thanks very much.

  • We had a great time at Eugene's apartment. Checkin was easy, and the apartment was clean, well furnished, and in a great location -- perfect for a few days (or longer) in Galway.

  • We stayed at Eugene's place from December 30th-January 2nd.

    Everything in his description and photos is as shown on the site.

    Such a cute apartment and very central, we walked everywhere.

    Eugene was great before hand through the site, and helpful when we needed him while we were there.

    We had a great time and would definitely recommend to others and stay here again.

    Thanks again Eugene for helping with our bags and for the champagne!

  • Eugene is very prompt with his responses and we really appreciated meeting him on time at the flat! It was nice to have him meet us, especially giving us some suggestions and tips for food and parking on top of having info/pamphlets in the apartment as well. The place is really an ideal location in Galway! Everything is within walking distance and parking wasn't too bad either. After a long day at the Cliffs of Moher and then the Aran Islands(1-2hours drive away), this is the place you want to stay in Galway. It was so convenient to shop, eat, and drink and then walk into a cozy place to rest. Shower is hot, bed is comfy, kitchen had a mini fridge for snacks and making eggs for breakfast as well as complimentary tea and drinks! Very good experience and would definitely recommend Eugene's apartment.
