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.

Eugene runs a solid place. Communication was always great and fast, easy check in, clean place, and he was friendly. The place itself is downtown but not on top of everything (meaning its perfect - not loud when you finally decide to call it a night, but close enough that you can walk everywhere). Eugene has a binder with tons of useful info including very good tips on all manner of restaurants in the city. You can tell he is a foodie and the selection shows. Would definitely stay again next time I am in town.

Perfect apartment for being right in the middle of things in Galway. Restaurants literally across the street and all around the apartment. Lots of pubs as well. Eugene gives a bunch of options for different places to eat/drink around the city, two of which we used and they were phenomenal. Would definitely stay here again.

Response from Eugene:
Thanks Ryan. Glad to hear that you took some of my recommendations. I like to make sure my guests get good eats while they're in town, for sure! See you again next time! :)

--HOSTING--
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.

--TRAVELLING--
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!
