PIEKNY DOM I FANTASYCZNA LOKALIZACJA

  • 5 of 5
Goraco polecam wynajem tego domu, jest idealny niezalezne od tego jaki jest cel pobytu w Galway. Dom jest w super lokalizacji pomiedzy salthill a centrum miasta. Wszedzie mozna dojsc na pieszo, a dla leniwych przystanek autobusowy jest po drugiej stronie ulicy i kursujuje bardzo czesto.
Dom jest bardzo przestrzenny i naprawde czysty. Sypialnie sa gustownie udekorowane i wygodne jak w 5* hotelu.
Kuchnia jest doskonale wyposazona i bardzo wygodna do gotowania i do relaksu oraz przyjmowania gosci. Kuchnia z jednej strony idealnie laczy sie z salonem a z drugiej strony z malym ogrodem. Tu wlasnie odpoczywalismy na drinka po dlugim dniu zwiedzania, fajnie tez rozpalic grilla i spedzic tu wiekszosc dnia.
Fergal od samego poczatku byl przyjazny i bardzo pomocny,zabral nas do duzego supermarketu w pierwszy dzien naszego przyjazdu i uprzyjemnil nasz pobyt za co bardzo mu dziekujemy.

INTERESTING PLACE. INTERESTING EXPERIENCE.

  • 3 of 5
Of the four places we stayed throughout our three week holiday in Ireland, this place was toward the bottom on our rankings. First of all, no one ever provided information on how to gain access to the apartment. In fact, we weren't even provided with contact information outside of an email address. The morning of the day we were due to arrive, I sent an email asking about a key. After eight hours and no response, we spent an hour scouring the internet to find Fergal's phone number and finally were given instructions on entering.

We arrived to an apartment that slightly resembled the one advertised. Clearly they staged the pictures as, outside of the permanent fixtures, very little looked the same. First of all, the heat was off when we arrived so it was freezing! The bedrooms were quite small, one of which has absolutely no wall plugs to charge phones, etc. (odd). The apartment has two full bathrooms. However, the one that is shared by three out of four of the bedrooms only has a bath (no shower). The ensuite bath on the master has a tiny stand-up shower that literally shoots bullets from it's spout. While you are dodging bullets, you'll want to watch for falling shower curtains. It will come down at least once while you're in there, guaranteed.

The kitchen is well stocked. It even comes with a couch so your family can sit in comfort as they watch you cook their dinner. =o) Another oddity we didn't quite understand. The remainder of the place is pretty bare bones. Nothing to write home about.

Finally, the location is convenient to absolutely nothing (outside of a nice Dunne's around the corner). Walking isn't really an option from this apartment. So, if you don't plan to rent a car, you will definitely want to stay somewhere closer to city centre.

Honestly, I am giving this one a three star rating out of the kindness of my heart. I was terribly disappointed with the entire experience that was this apartment. I suppose if there were more truth in advertising, my expectations may have aligned with my experience and I could give it a higher rating.

LOVELY HOUSE WITH SPACE FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
Stayed with my wife, teenage son & two daughters.

House was impeccable, rooms were comfortable.
Regular buses to the centre were great & very close to the house
so you don't need a car.The comfortable atmosphere of the house allowed us to rest at night and enjoy seeing the sights of Galway city & county and relatives in the area. This house can also host a grand dinner.
We had a great time at this location and would recommend it for families, travelers of all ages and golfers, who would enjoy the access to the nearby golf courses.


Thank you Fergal for an amazing stay. My family will never forget our Ireland trip.

SIGHT SEEING

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have travelled extensively in Europe, and Galway was among our favourite places to stay ever.our son & daughter spent a semester in university there so we needed a place that we could all spend time together in comfortably. It gets our highest marks re: location, convenience, overall amenities, hospitality of the owner, and proximity to everything we wanted to see. The apartment is roomy, attractively decorated, and immaculate. It is one of the best value for money we found, and there is no doubt that we would stay here again if our travels ever bring us back to Galway. It was truly a home away from home! All details of our transaction were also expertly handled, and the owner was available for advice and support during the stay whenever we needed him. This will be a place we will return many times, and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful setting in Galway with all the comforts of home
