About Cathy Morgan

Dear Guests, myself and my family returned to Ireland in recent years having lived overseas ourselves for many years. We enjoyed many worldwide trips & travels over those years, and experienced firsthand the pro’s & con’s of hotels versus short stay apartments. Hotels can be great, but! we realised, how much we better enjoyed ourselves when we felt thoroughly ‘At Home’ on these travels. Putting all of this into good practice in our beautiful Galway & Dublin short-rental options, we are extremely conscious of always offering this pleasure to the weary traveller – a seriously welcoming home-from-home environment - for 3 nights only or 3+ leisurely weeks! Working hard on the things that count – including fresh, luxurious bed linens & duvets and beds fully made up, fridge freshly stocked with Useful Food Items, and our useful local guides - you can so quickly settle in and get going with the many wonderful activities, explorations and small adventures awaiting you on a visit to Ireland, including lively engagement with everyone you meet on your tips and tours...

Why Cathy Morgan chose County Galway

Our deluxe short stay options are just 2 to 3 minutes away from the liveliest quarters of Town – and yet so peaceful and quiet for a great night’s sleep. The wider city is alive with visitors, restaurants, cafe-bars and many very unique & special traditional Irish pubs and live music - you will have made an excellent choice by staying with us on The Crescent.

Galway is a great town! - the capital city of Connacht is a bustling and superbly lively university city that sits at the end of Lough Corrib - Lake & River - as it wends its way to the Atlantic Ocean. Long a wonderful and busy merchant town with a serious maritime tradition and backdrop, Galway’s trading history can be seen in town canals, water breaks & salmon weirs, pier heads, and sea-side promenades and walkways, plus rich ancient woodlands that survive in precious pockets around the town. Our location on The Crescent is part of this older world of Galway going back to the early 1830’s - when trains ran to Clifden, and a tramline ran from Eyre Square via The Crescent and out to the seaside promenades of Salthill. The apartment is located in an elegant tall period house there of some 180 years standing, and we do everything we can to maintain the ambience of this lovely old period house accompanied by many beautiful and contemporary features of today.

What makes this apartment unique

- Beautiful environment to settle into quickly, beds all freshly made up; fridge stocked and generous Welcome Basket of groceries.

- excellent local shops & supermarket just 2 mins away;

- excellent shopping in lively town centre just 5 minutes away;

- many interesting walks through town and surrounding places;

- abundance of excellent Restaurants from the end of Sea Road - just 2 mins away!

- abundance of warm & inviting Irish pubs & live music from the end of Sea Road through to the two Dominick Streets, Quay Street and surrounding Latin Quarter - all just 2 to 3 minutes away!

- fabulous walks to Salthill Village and along seaside promenades;

- Abundance of wonderful trips & tours to book into;

- suberb Golf courses a short drive away: Galway Golf Links 5 mins; Barna GC 10 mins; Galway Bay 20 mins; Athenry Parkland 30mins; Ballinahinch 1 hour, etc.

Silver Heron - your home away from home in Galway

  • 5 of 5

A lovely little apartment, beautifully equipped, very comfortable and home-like. A great location, you can walk into the city or out to Salthill and a car space is available if you need one. Liz was very welcoming, providing a thoughtful basket of groceries to get us started, and information about Galway and the region - she even picked us up from the station the day we arrived! We'd definitely stay at Silver Heron again. Ross and Bev Homel.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this most convenient apartment for a week and were more than pleased. The location is excellent: we could walk everywhere, never had to use the car, which we were able to conveniently park in the back lot. The bedroom was a good size, and while the kitchen is tiny, it was fully stocked and very efficient. We chose not to cook very much, but every appliance was available. The washer and dryer were great, and the laundry room even had a drying rack. Liz did not miss a trick in making this a great apartment for a lovely stay in Galway. She was very welcoming, had the fridge and fruit bowl well stocked for our arrival and was available for questions. We would stay here again without reservations.

You will be delighted with this very nice self-catering apartment - the Silver Heron is a hidden gem located in our solid and lovely period house on The Crescent, one of Galway's oldest residential street. You are nicely close to all the action with just a 5-minutes walk to Dominick Street & Quay Street, yet wonderfully away from all the noise and bustle of town center and traffic. Plenty of excellent Restaurants and traditional Irish pubs & music – the Crane Bar & Rosiin Dubh are almost just around the corner from us… So plan on ditching the car and have a wonderful relaxing fresh-air time in Galway, :).
