room with a view

  • 5 of 5
we stayed in the penthouse apartment and really enjoyed the view of Galway Bay from the balcony - it is the one featured on the website. Sean and his son were helpful in every respect. The penthouse is slightly smaller than other apartments but was fine for us three. Kitchen was well equipped ( suggestion for Sean - more plates would be welcome).
As reported by other reviewers the property is in a fantastic location - high class deli round the corner and the fantastic O'Conners Pub 5 minute walk away. !5 minute walk into the town of galway itself with all Pubs and Eating places too many to mention. A must see is the TRAD ON THE PROM show in the Galway Bay Hotel, 10 min walk, Top class Riverdance type entertainment.
Off Street secure parking is a bonus but the view from these quality apartments really does take the biscuit.

Thanks Sean for a great holiday. hope to make it back

A great apartment in a delightful city.

  • 5 of 5
Arus Gratten was terrific! We were greeted by Sean, the owner, who is full of Irish charm as well as information about the area. There's an elevator to the apartments which have all the necessary creature comforts. There are small heaters in the living room that look like little fireplaces and are just enough to take the chill off. The kitchens are well equipped including a dishwasher, electric kettle, electric coffee pot, microwave, and combo washer/dryer. There are adequate dishes, wine glasses, pots and pans. Each balcony has a small table and chairs so you can sit outside and watch the sea and sunset. The drapes and furniture are attractive and look quite new. Everything is comfortable and feels "homey." There's indoor or outdoor parking for the car that we never took out of the garage because you can walk everywhere, to Pubs, restaurants, a good wine shop, a cheese shop, a couple food markets, as well as into downtown Galway and along the waterfront. We loved the whole experience: the apartment, Galway and Ireland. In fact, we plan to return, next time renting more apartments and bringing our adult children.

Spotless Salthill Holiday Apt.

  • 5 of 5
If you love to walk this is the place for you! You go one way and you are in City Center in about 15 mins. You walk the other way, and you enjoy the Promenade along Galway Bay, in 2 mins., The village of Salthill is around the corner! View from the the smaller two bedroom two bath apt.,while narrow, does overlook the bay and provides a welcome respite after a trip to the busy City Centr. Apt. is spotless, and the intrepid landlord is on sight every day! He is most helpful and there to make sure all amenities are ship shape. If you are a huge partier, ie, loud drinker, forget it. Premises is for respectful folks. No loud parties encouraged. Landlord, Sean, and his son are friendly and ready to offer helpful tips for your trip. Building is in a quiet spot and has a car park underneath. Furnishings are adequate and compact. Perfectly elevated dining bench provides an excellent view of the sea. Main bathroom is bright and and larger than most ensuites. We stayed for 4 weeks and really felt at home. A great location, a great value, and a great space, makes for an excellent vacation.

Looking forward to coming back

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here recently for the Galway Bay half marathon (October 2011) – and had a fantastic week with family (5 adults). The location could not have been more perfect, the apartment was spotless and provided everything you could need to cook, do laundry, etc ( a huge savings over having to eat every meal out)
There is a spectacular view from the living room, kitchen and huge balcony directly overlooking the bay. (Perfect for watching the sun go down on Galway Bay!). The price was extremely reasonable and the owner could not have been more accommodating. Anything extra we needed, from a bed to extra parking spaces, was provided free. Parking is inside a secured locked parking area, which is comforting, and access to the apartment building is also locked. Sean was a great host and goes out of his way to provide anything you would need. He lives across the road so is always accessible. There is free wifi an iron, and hairdryer.
The apartment is perfectly situated directly on the "prom" (a 3 mile section of boardwalk) great for running, or walking. It is only a 10 minute walk from the Latin Quarter and the center of town. I grew up not far from here and only regret not having found this place sooner. I return to Galway almost yearly and this is absolutely the best place hands down I have stayed in over 20 years, including hotels. I will definitely be returning!

Really enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here! Sean was friendly and welcoming. There is a great pub nearby, Connors. Really, a classic Irish neighborhood pub. Also, a great restaurant Lohans, seafood/pub food.
There is a wonderful view of the sea and it is a beautiful walk to town (weather permitting) around 20 minutes. Parking does not seem to be an issue in this area but the private gated parking was great as well.
The apartment was nice and clean. Wifi, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Enough kitchen with what we needed and a spectacular view!

Arus Grattan, Salthill County Galway Ireland

  • 5 of 5
Our first trip to Ireland was for a month. We were looking for a city and area that would represent the culture well and show the beauty of the land. We chose Galway City as it is around 80,000 with a university and some stunning walks and views and pizazz in general.

We searched the Internet and came upon Arus Grattan Apartments in Salthill. After contact by email and questions answered we made a deposit many months in advance and booked in for most of the month of June 2010.

We were stunned by the beauty of the area, the quality of the apartments and the sheer convenience for walking, transit, groceries and Guinness.

The host was fantastic at serving our needs and answering questions and much was prepared ahead of time in the way of information.

From this beautiful place of Salthill we were able to walk to the centre of Galway easily. We also were picked up and dropped off when we ventured to Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher. We did many local things as well including the weekly markets, the Claddagh and cruising the River Corrib.

My thanks to the host and owner of Arus Grattan and my apologies for taking so long to write this. You truly made a long lost person of Irish descent feel right at home.

Salthill is truly charming, convenient, fun and beautiful and your accommodations first class at a fair price.

Thank you Mr. T.

PS
We highly recommend the boutique tour through Faherty tours to Connemara and the Aran Islands. The owner is an excellent host and you will see things you do not see on larger tours.

Thank you all!

Galway, City of the Tribes, is a medieval city dating back to the 5th century. A thriving and vibrant artistic community, the home base of the International renowned Macnas and Druid Theater company.

A whirlwind of activity with Art galleries, old book shops, pubs, restaurants, theater, arts, culture, and traditional Irish music. All centered in the narrow streets bustling with activity and friendly people.

Enjoy great shopping, the city is proud to offer an array of shops to cater for all tastes. The Canal walkways, the salmon fishing at the salmon weir bridge and the meeting of the sea and river bed between long walk and the old fishing village of the Claddagh create a peaceful escape from all the bustle.

The nearby village of Salthill over looking Galway Bay provides a seaside recreational facility with family leisure activities, swimming complex, golfing, horse riding and promenade walks.
