About Cathy Morgan

Having lived overseas and very well-travelled over the years with a lively & engaged family, we've put our experiences into developing a smart & savvy short-rentals service, in both Galway and Dublin. We love these locations, as they are such interesting places to spend time in. We know you'll truly enjoy exploring the many activities always available and our part is to ensure you have a luxurious & perfect home-from-home to work from. A marvelous variety of theatre, music sessions, arts & literary events, and the beautiful outdoors await you at all times. Our mission is simple - provide you with an excellent & special base easy to manage and refreshing to spend time in. Your mission is to unfurl from the busy world out there, and enjoy every moment of your stay!

Cathy Morgan purchased this house in 2010

Why Cathy Morgan chose Galway City Area

The Crescent is a unique and very special part of original Galway City. By tradition it has a mix medical & legal people maintaining consulting rooms in the period houses along the street. We truly enjoy ensuring that our guests are well looked after in a great location. You can view our Google map link and see how well The Crescent is located so close to - but not in the thick of - a delightfully crowded & buzzing centre of town, which can become hugely busy & lively in the summer season & at festival times! At the Coach House, you are just a 5-minute walk from the romance & fun of of Quay Street & the surrounding Latin Quarter.

What makes this house unique

Fabulous location, close to excellent walks, and then restaurants, cafes & traditional Irish pubs! Beautiful interior to relax into, with separate & smart-appliances kitchen, power showers, a natural stone open fireplace in the spacious living room and wireless broadband are yours to indulge in during your stay.

The Coach House is 5-star sensibility & comfort with many thoughtful extras. There is great peace & privacy, being the only residential unit along our private lane on The Crescent.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is a Wow! It's new & intriquing, with the architect-designed layout, colours & artwork are impressive. It's spacious and extremely well finished. For 6 of us, there was everything we could need - beautiful kitchen & all utensils, fresh bedroom linens - all superb quality, hi-speed wireless internet and satellite tv. Walking into town centre & taking the sea air at Salthill was delightful, and thrilling on a windy day. The Welcome Basket & fresh flowers from the owner's garden were so genuine and helpful. We would highly recommend this for a 5-star holiday stay in Galway. We felt so welcomed & settled in so quickly. Very cool and well worth the price.

Trip of a Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5
This is a fabulous place. Liz is a wonderful and very entertaining lady. The Coach house is immaculate and everything from the bedrooms/baths and kitchen is just like home. We (6 of us) stayed for just over3 weeks mid-Sept to mid-Oct. 2013. I love to do the cooking, so we prepared most of our meals here. The kitchen has everything one needs. Even a very well stocked spice cabinet. There is a good grocery store within five minutes, so no trouble finding food supplies. It's a lovely walk to the city, just over the river Corrib. We took tours to The Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands and Connemara. Spectacular scenery. Galway is a gem of a city. Virtually everything within walking distance. The pubs are wonderful, there is a farmer's market in town on the week-end. Lot's of fresh vegetables, arts and crafts. I cannot say enough, and we cannot wait to return. Sla'inte.

HFantastic location!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect spot for 1-10 pp. We spent a week here (10 pp in our family) & it was a great central location. Walking distance to all Galway has to offer & to public transportation for venturing off. The accommodations were complete & relaxing. We would (& have) highly recommend The Coach House & the Silver Teal apts for a visit to Ireland! Thank you Cathy & Liz! Our parents had a most memorable 50th anniversary trip (as did we)!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying here, the owner has put so much thought in design and comfort, I really appreciated this. All of her recommendations for dining were excellent, Kai being my favorite. Day trips to Clifden and Aran Islands and golf (even Ballybunion!) were fun and easy, and of course coming home to the cozy coach house was so nice. thank you!

A Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed in the Coach House, a lovely three-bedroom property hidden behind the Crescent. The Coach House was very nice, and very well appointed, with three nice bedrooms, a sitting or TV room, a kitchen with dining area, two full baths and two half baths (make sure Liz shows you how the flush the toilet in the half bath in the entry - it's tricky), and a laundry area. The property was quite spacious. Everything you would want in a vacation rental - and more - was provided for us. I've stayed in VRBO properties all over the US, and I've never had a welcome basket of food provided for me. The welcome basket was extremely helpful and saved us from having to go shopping right away, as well as being full of yummy items. All the appliances (such as the washer/dryer) worked well. The location was good, only about a city block away from a grocery store, and about a ten minute walk into the start of the downtown area. It was about a 20-25 minute walk to the main square and the bus that takes you to the Aran Islands. It was a five minute walk to the nearest playground if you're traveling with kids. It was a bit difficult for taxi drivers to find, as Devon Place is really just a driveway. If you direct your taxi driver to Number 1, the Crescent, you'll be pretty close and then you go down a driveway around the back to the Coach House. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5
I was here to direct a play at the Galway Arts Festival and we had a number of relatives joining us, so the size of the apartments was key. Our son and his wife took an apartment across the way, and we took the house. In all there were 10 of us and the house and apartment were perfect for our needs. A nice walk to Galway City and wonderfully appointed rooms, I will definitely go back if we are fortunate enough to come back. The hosts were most accommodating and helpful. WE LOVE GALWAY!

Good location but misleading property description

  • 2 of 5
We were a party of six staying at the Coach House for a few days during the Galway Oyster Festival. The location was conveniently near to the city but difficult to find down a very narrow passage. It was a well equipped house, spotlessly clean and the basket of groceries and fruit on arrival was much appreciated.

We chose the house because it was described as having three double bedrooms and three bathrooms which would have been ideal for six people. However there were no bathrooms just two shower rooms, one upstairs and one in the utility room, and a downstairs toilet. We chose not to use the shower room in the utility room because the smell from the large oil tank was overpowering.

The three bedrooms had double beds but only one room had a wardrobe which we all had to share with limited storage space in the linen cupboard. The bedrooms were small particularly the one adjoining the patio area.

The house was described as the only residential unit behind office blocks and flats. The outlook from the house towards the back of these units was grim and did not fit the description of "the lovely old houses in a private lane".

So not we were expecting but thankfully Galway City was as lively as ever and the surrounding countryside was wonderful.
