Guestbook comments from the owner
Everything about our stay at St. Annes exceeded our expectations! As beautifully presented as the house is on the internet, it's impossible to do both the home and the hospitality of the Joyces justice in such a two dimensional medium. In addition to its charm, the home offers everything one could hope for to compliment an extended stay in Galway. From a well stocked kitchen complete with spices should you decide to take advantage of the proximity of a very modern supermarket (easy 10 minute walk), to the double wall oven, modern cooktop and ample refrigerator, and the delightfully welcoming sweet snacks set out in the breakfast room, or even the makings for your first morning's breakfast left in the refrigerator, you will find this home the prefect setting for your gathering. Our group of eight adults visited in February 2010, and found it the perfect location for our adventures in Galway City. We couldn't have asked for a better location; located in a quiet residential area, it was a refreshing 15 minute walk down to Shop Street, the Salthill Promenade, and of course...the pubs! For days when you might not want to walk, the bus stop is directly opposite the gated entrance to the home. Additionally, taxi service is readily available and surprisingly affordable. Each of the four bedrooms is almost a suite unto itself, with the smallest room still offering a double bed and private bath with shower. There's even a hairdryer in each of the bathrooms. The ground floor was spacious with ample space for us all to spend time together comparing or planning our day, while allowing smaller gatherings in the library or breakfast room. There's even a half bath downstairs in addition to a modern laundry room with washer and dryer. No need to bring laundry soap even...the Joyces have thought of even the smallest detail to assure your stay is trouble free. And had our visit been at any time of year other than winter, I'm sure we would have enjoyed spending hours sitting in the lovely courtyard, complete with patio tables and chairs. I also highly recommend Galway Tour Company if you want to take a daylong tour along Ireland's western coast. Simply by calling the company, arrangements were made to be picked up for the tour directly from St. Annes, and at the conclusion of the tour in the early evening, we were dropped back off at the house. Our drivers, Desmond and his son Ray, were amusing, well informed, great tour guides...and excellent drivers...not an insignificant s

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IN LOVELY AREA

  • 5 of 5
The house was large and nicely furnished. The pictures and description were accurate. Each room was well appointed and immaculate. The five of us enjoyed the space. Electricity and heat were extra but we felt that the charges were reasonable. The hosts greeted us with tea and scones and that was the last we saw of them until we checked out. I think it was farther than we expected to city center but there was an Aldi's (bad choice) and another larger grocery store (Dunnes) within walking distance. We used the house as a base and visited other places nearby. I highly recommend this beautiful house! Thank you, Gerard!

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at St Anne's was one of the best homes we've ever had the privilege of staying. Attention to detail in every room of the house was incredible. It suited our group of 4 couples completely. The hospitality we were shown by Gerard was above and beyond. Absolutely could not recommend this home more. Will definitely stay again on our next visit to Ireland.

LOVELY, SIMPLY LOVELY

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five rented this lovely house in Galway for 4 days. The only problem with this house is that you don't ever want to leave it! The rooms were exquisitely decorated, the beds were comfortable, the whole house was beautiful. Our landlords welcomed us with tea, pie, and cupcakes--such a much-needed welcome to Ireland! You will not regret renting this property--we were sad to leave and hope to return!

BEAUTIFUL PERIOD HOUSE WITH COMFORT, STYLE AND GRACE AND A WARM WELCOME

  • 5 of 5
We were a party 4 women that each wanted our own room and bath and this lovely home provided that and much, much more. This home was immaculately clean and the beds were of very good quality and comfort. The beds were made up with ironed linens and beautiful comforters. The bathrooms were very high quality with beautiful towels. The kitchen was large and furnished with everything you need to cook and enjoy meals in the lovely breakfast room or dining room. Although we were only a party of 4, this house could easily handle larger parties and still give everyone privacy.
The owners met us and had the table set with tea and goodies, which was very welcome after a long journey. The refrigerator was stocked so we didn't need to dash to the store. Our week went by much too quickly and we did not want to leave our beautiful and comfortable home. We would definitely rent this home again, if (when) we return to Galway!

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
A home away from home! We felt like royalty driving up to our own hidden estate. After staying in B&B's, which were nice and we enjoyed their breakfast, we were so glad to have a space all to ourselves. Our hosts were most hospitable having the refrigerator stocked with some basics for us too. We could catch up on laundry, prepare our own meals, an amazing cost savings with 8 of us. We thoroughly enjoyed our solitude in this spacious beautiful home. We enjoyed being out for the day and being able to come back home. So many day trip possibilities from Galway. We would recommend this home to anyone that needs this much space.

WONDERFUL FAMILY HOME

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a 3 week trip to Ireland. The second week of our trip we spent in Galway at St. Anne's. This indeed is a delightful home, semi-attached with plenty of parking and privacy. All rooms of ample size to accommodate the seven of us. Bedrooms are large and comfortable, with modern bathrooms. The house is keep in tip top shape with a well stocked library,incase you are wanting to have an afternoon off from sight-seeing. Gerry and Winn are wonderful hosts and had afternoon tea waiting for us on arrival, also the next day's breakfast supplies.
St. Anne's is well situated, for walking to the city center, good restraunts and pubs and the Salt Hill. From Galway it is very convenient to take day trips to the Aran Islands, The Cliffs of Moher and The Burren. All of which we enjoyed.
Although electricity is extra, the cost for the seven of us was only 35 euros for the week, quite reasonable.
If you are comfortable doing stairs this home is ideal for a family vacation.
Thanks again.
