Hello, I am the owner of The Devon Place Apartment, Galway and returned to Ireland recently - having lived overseas for many years. Together with my lively & engaged family, we've enjoyed many worldwide trips and travels ourselves over the years. We're now putting into practice many of the high standards we enjoyed around the world - at our beautiful Galway holiday / short-stay apartment. We work hard to ensure you find a lovely, welcoming & fresh apartment awaiting you that's a pleasure to enjoy yet easy to manage. Beds all made up for you with our fresh, luxurious linens and deep duvets, you can quickly settle in and get busy with the many activities and pleasures to explore and enjoy out & about the town & countryside!

Cathy Morgan purchased this apartment in 2009

Galway is a great town! It is a bustling & lively university city that sits between the beautiful Corrib Lake, the River Corrib and the Atlantic Ocean. With a rich maritime backdrop, the town abounds in canals and sea-side walkways, from the Salmon Weir bridge and its many canal walks in town to the fabulous & lengthy Salthill promenade, and we highly recommend these as 'must-do' visits for our guests! Galway has just hosted a 2-week stopover for the global Volvo Ocean Yacht Race, before its final leg to St Petersburg, and this 2-week maritime festival in early June 09 was truly fabulous, showing off the city at its summer best. And there is more to come - with the excellent Galway Arts Festival in mid-July, the Galway Races at end of July, the Oyster Festival in September, and the Baboro Theatre Festival in October. With many smaller festivals and activities happening in-between, the city is alive with visitors, restaurants, cafe-bars and our many unique, traditional bars and pubs, where music & the chat are always on tap and on the go!

Our location on the Crescent is just perfect for your stay in Galway, because we are within a most pleasing and short walk to the city centre and surrounding places of interest. The town centre is just 5 minutes away, and a walk to Salthill is equally brief and enjoyable. At The Devon Place Apartment, you settle in quickly because we have all beds freshly made up for you with our 100% cotton linens, and our generous Welcome Basket of Groceries. We collect you from your arrival point in town and bring you directly to the apartment, and in this way - you don't have to worry about directions or an early shop for necessities. From the apartment, it is so easy to plan and enjoy many of the city's activities. Night life is a pleasure - with many good restaurants in town - on Quay Street and the surrounding Latin Quarter - just a 5 minutes walk away. Yet our apartment is in such a quiet location - you can so comfortably retire back to take time out when enough activities have been done. Trips to Connemara or to the Aran Islands are a simple matter of booking tickets online via our wireless broadband connection, or when in town. You can then amble over to Galway port ('the docks') at the required check-in time and you're off on a small adventure. For golf-lovers, there is an abundance of golf courses - the city hosts an excellent golf links just a short 5 minute drive or bus-ride from the apartment. There is Barna GC, Athenry GC, Galway Bay GC at Renville, and Creganna GC where green fees will have you catching up on some challenging course before you know it! We may provide sets of men's & ladies clubs in the future, if we get feedback that this would be helpful to guests.

Quirky, But Right

  • 4 of 5
Silver Teal Apartment is a delightful spot, close enough to all the Galway pedestrian action, but at enough of a remove that it's quiet and serene. The apartment has a slightly odd layout (the two bathrooms are side by side down a half-flight of stairs), but when you think about it...why not? Liz was attentive and full of excellent suggestions for eating and entertainment (try the fabulous Kai just up the street). There was a veritable feast of towels, thoughtful selection of food items for our initial consumption, and the beds were incredibly comfy. Hot water on demand! And probably the best washer/dryer I've found in Ireland/Britain (notoriously slow and feeble for North Americans!) The apartment itself is spacious (we were a family of 4 with teens, plus my husband's brother), and we never felt as though we were on top of each other. Plus, we had a family dinner for 9 people at the massive dining table! You do have to walk up, but we were in western Ireland to go hiking, so we weren't bothered in the least, but it might be an issue for folks with mobility issues. The kitchen in general was well-appointed (though I could never find the frying pan and a wok isn't quite the same). Word of warning, particularly for North American drivers used to left side steering wheels and left side driving (oh, and ample roadways): the passage to the back parking space is TIGHT. Keep as close to the wall as you can on the driver's side, and you should be fine. Also, tuck in your side mirrors prior to attempting the narrow passage!

A Gem of an Apartment in Galway City

  • 5 of 5
The Silver Teal Apartment in Galway more than lived up to our expectations. Having previously spent 4 nights in the Dublin Cork St. Apartment managed by the same person, we were not disappointed. The bedrooms were spacious and there were two well-appointed bathrooms which was great, since we were two couples travelling together. As in Dublin, the welcome basket was a delightful surprise and the fridge was already stocked with essentials that made grocery shopping unnecessary. Having a washer and dryer was a great benefit after spending a week at B&B's. The property was clean, bright, and very quiet at night. It was nice to be able to park the rented car for t he 3 days we were there as all the city centre attractions were within easy walking distance, as was the lovely waterfront. Liz was an amazing guide, providing us with dining and entertainment tips. We would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a place to put down roots for a few days and explore a wonderful city with a fascinating history. Our favourite pub was Ward's pub, a short walk from the apartment where we heard the best traditional music of our entire 14 day trip. If we ever have the good fortune to return to Galway City, we will certainly book the Silver Teal Apartment again.

Still Great!

  • 5 of 5
Well, my fourth visit to your lovely vacation home did not disappoint. I so enjoy climbing the stairs after a day of visiting the local sights (this year was able to take my friend Brian to the Aran Island of Inishmore with fantastic weather; wonderful!) to find myself happily ensconced in the Crescent. Your welcome, Cathy, was warm and generous as ever (what a basket!). What I so enjoy are the possibilities a stay at your home provides. As other reviewers note, there are wonderful restaurants nearby (Cava, Rouge) and great pubs (The Crane, Monroe's). But one can also cook. I learned how to make Aunt Mona's (family from Ballina in Mayo) bacon and cabbage this trip and was able to prepare a pretty good reproduction of the dish in your kitchen. Delicious! Next year I believe I will be traveling with my Mother and, alas, at her age she will not be able to climb the stairs to Silver Teal. But, hey-ho, you have solved that situation! I can stay at the wonderful Coach House! When you gave me a tour of this newly renovated apartment I thought this would be perfect for our family and a wonderful place to stay. So nicely appointed! Under floor heating! If it isn't in the Coach House you probably don't need it anyway. What is most important is that one still gets to stay in this location; the Crescent is a fabulous place to begin exploring Galway. Just a few minutes walk from everything! The Coach House looks to be a fantastic place to stay and I know my mother will love it. As much as I've enjoyed my many stays at Silver Teal. What more can one ask? Look forward to seeing you, Declan and family next year! Keep well, Ed

Perfect Apartment in Galway

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was exactly as shown and described on the website -- maybe better. The owner was so helpful and welcoming. On our first jet-lagged day, she even drove us to the bus station to pick up our daughter! The apartment is charming and spacious. We found it to have plenty of room for 5 people (2 adults mid-50's and 3 adult children) The kitchen was well-equipped and the welcome basket provided was so thoughtful and had enough food to get us started without having to run out to the store right away. The location was perfect for us...a little outside of town center, but an easy walk. (about 10 minutes to the Spanish Arch) We liked being a little outside of the hubub for a quieter place to rest up at night. The only negative for us was a tight parking situation -- drive in carefully..But that was a minor factor in an otherwise perfectly charming set-up! Thank you Liz and Cathy!

Perfectly Awesome Stay and Apartment

  • 5 of 5
My wife, son and I were visiting my daughter, who is in Galway for a semester abroad program, for a week. The apartment was a perfect location for exploring Galway and beyond. It was comfortable and was a great base of operations for our exploring. The apartment had plenty of Irish charm and is located just on the edge of the town, which enable you to be in the middle of it within minutes, thus adding more Irish charm. We rented a car to see the sites on the West Coast and it was nice to have parking off the streets to eliminate the worry about the care, when it was not being used. Out hosts, Liz and Cathy could not of been more helpful to us prior to and during our stay in Galway. They have also served as a resource for our daughter, while she is there. It does not get any better than this. Highly recommeded by us !!

Glorious Galway Apartment

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this fabulous place while visiting our daughter. It exceeded our expectations in just about every way. We LOVED the interesting (and certainly European floor plan) and it was warm and cozy and in good taste (no dusty rose placemats). Our hostess was a sweetheart....from picking us up at the bus station in the rain to allowing us to stay an extra night. And, LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! Really great to be out of the busy part of Galway and within walking distance of everything...we felt like locals (and ate and drank like locals, too!). Our hostess gave great activity and restaurant recommendations...all spot on. We fell in love with Ireland and our stellar week in Galway was all part of the experience. Yes, we will go back.
