BEAUTIFUL ON ALL FRONTS.

  • 5 of 5
The barn was stunning on both the outside, and inside. The grounds are lovely too. 3 of us stayed for several nights. It was our first chance to unwind and unpack during our Irish travels. We utilized the well-appointed kitchen for breakfast, as well as a dinner or two. It was so nice to have access to the washer and dryer too. Everything is comfortably appointed, newer, and visually pleasing. We will definitely visit again on our next trip. Thank you Peggy and Tony!

LOVED OUR STAY HERE!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 (boys ages 8 and 12) stayed at Peggy and Tony's wonderful old stone barn apartment for 10 days. They are both clearly artists because the apartment could not have been more charming right down to the details! It was spacious and comfortable with a lot of light. We enjoyed the beautiful garden at the back deck while we drank our coffee in the morning. In addition, this place is located PERFECTLY! We enjoyed the feeling of country and the peace and quiet, yet we were just a small drive to the heart of Galway. As a jumping off point to explore many nearby areas this apartment worked out wonderfully as we saved much time not needing to drive THROUGH the busy city everytime we went out to explore surrounding sights. Also, both Peggy and Tony were very friendly and helpful with guiding us to places to check out and visit during our stay. If ever we end up in Galway in the future, we would no doubt stay here again! Thank you, Peggy and Tony!

BUCOLIC SETTING MINUTES FROM EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5
The owners, Peggy & Tony, really have really restored and created something special here. As someone who grew up going to Ireland just about every year, this property has such nostalgic value for me, as it pays tribute to the history of Ireland. You can feel the history all around the apartment and the property as a whole. Inside you'll find every contemporary amenity one would expect to find at home. The beds are comfortable, the showers work great, dishwasher, laundry facilities, and even a beautiful little garden out the back door to enjoy. Peggy and Tony have outdone themselves and it's obvious they put a lot of thought and care into restoring this barn. I promise you'll enjoy it every bit as much as myself and my family did. This is now my place to stay each time I go back to visit my family in Ireland. We can't thank you enough for the memories that will last the rest of our lives! Cheers!!!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in the early afternoon and found everything we needed to get started on our weekend getaway. The keys were in the door, the cottage was clean and tidy. We traveled with two children (9 and 14) and they loved visiting with Molly the pony. The cottage had internet and tv available as well. It is very quiet in the evenings and even during the day. Close enough to downtown Galway and a good jumping off point for other attractions in the region. Peggy the owner was there to greet us, and was very attentive to our needs. Thanks Peggy!

WONDERFUL FAMILY STAY SURROUNDED BY NATURE

  • 5 of 5
We have just spent 4 nights at the Swallow Loft, tempted by the nice pictures and the presence of a pony and pets for our children to enjoy.
And our stay was just what we had hoped for.
The apartment is a 'bijou', so well decorated, and the location is exactly what we needed: right next to Galway for the Halloween celebration, the live music in the pubs, restaurants, and also close to Connemara and the wilderness of Ireland.
Peggy was such a nice host.

BEAUTIFUL PLACE, GREAT LOCATION, WONDERFUL OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
Our recent stay at Swallow Loft was a delight. The apartment which has been created in the old stone barn is beautiful - we had a sense of history and place while enjoying every modern amenity - comfy, eclectic, and pretty furnishings, great beds, a very well outfitted kitchen, and gorgeous light filling the rooms from the windows and skylights. When we first walked into the apartment, my husband commented that we must be staying in the best spot in all of Ireland. The location was also great, just a few short minutes into downtown Galway, but with a feeling of being in the country when we'd come 'home' after being out.

The owners of this property - Peggy and Tony - couldn't have been any kinder or more helpful. The fun we had on our vacation was due in no small part to their recommendations and the pleasure of our conversations with them.
