We started our Ireland adventures in Galway and were very, very pleased with the accommodations at Swallow Loft. The house and amenities were exactly as described in the listing, which was very important to us since we planned to do a lot of cooking during our stay. The quiet and serene country setting offered a relaxing way to start and end our busy days --- well worth the short drive into town. I can't say enough wonderful things about the hosts, Peggy and Tony, especially with the additional help they provided when a family emergency arose. They were extremely caring, kind and understanding! The only regret we had was that our stay was shorter than we wished. We would highly recommend the Swallow Loft for anyone visiting the Galway area.
