About Cathy Morgan, Your Time in Ireland SR
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...
Cathy Morgan, Your Time in Ireland SR purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Cathy Morgan, Your Time in Ireland SR chose Salthill
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. Our apartments are 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.

Home Away From Home
In April we visited Galway where our son was studying @ NUI for the semester. The Silver Teal apartment was perfect for our needs! We loved it! The apartment was so comfortable, spacious and clean. Exactly what we needed for our family of 4. We were able to walk to all the great pubs and other attractions. Cathy greeted us upon our arrival and provided a wonderful welcome basket of goodies (fruit, cereal, scones and breakfast meat/eggs in frig). I would highly recommend booking with Silver Teal. Great vacation!!! Snow Family
A Winter Week in Galway
Our family of four (young adult children and parents) enjoyed a tremendous week of vacation between Christmas and New Years in Galway and the surrounding area. The Silver Teal apartment was a perfect base for our adventures. We were warmly greeted by Liz and the welcome basket of groceries was a lovely way to start our week. We did a mixture of eating in and out, and the kitchen facilities were more than adequate for our needs. The washer and dryer were much appreciated as we got both wet and muddy in our explorations. The apartment is homey and very comfortable. There are books, puzzles, and information about area sites. Many good restaurants are close by and we found it easy to find good live music at nearby pubs in the evenings. It was a cold week while we were there, and the apartment was occasionally chilly (particularly the bathrooms at night). But abundant blankets and wall heaters were available, as well as a fireplace in the living room, so it was manageable. The apartment is an easy walk to the city center and all that Galway has to offer. (We loved the raspberry scones at Griffins.) An excellent grocery store is a short walk away. We only used the car for more distant destinations. With the bus tours available for beautiful Connemara, the stunning Cliffs of Moher, etc., I think we could have gotten along fine without one. If you like a challenging hike/climb, consider the Croagh Patrick, about an hour's drive from Galway. On a clear day the views are amazing, though you'll want to bring sturdy shoes and warm clothing, as well as water and a sandwich, especially if climbing in winter. The wind was cold and powerful! (FYI, If you are considering traveling during the week following Christmas, quite a few restaurants, shops and attractions are closed. There is still plenty to do and see, however.)
Great location, safe and quiet
We arrived in a rainstorm, not unusual for Galway in March, and the welcome we received made us feel so good! Liz gave us a tour of all of the units, and each is very nice. Three of us shared Silver Teal and we were extremely comfortable. Two large bedrooms, large bathrooms and a huge kitchen including a washer and dryer, made the stay especially convenient. (I try to be a light packer, and found it helpful to do laundry mid-week.) The unit is close to everything, and we felt like "locals" after a week. With all of the wonderful restaurants and historic sites in Galway, we were out all day every day wandering around town and enjoying the ambiance. We found a good taxi tour driver through the Irish Tourism office so we were able to take two tours of Cliffs of Moher and Connemara (we did not rent a car). It was great to come home every night to our "home" in Galway. They have units for almost any size group. Thanks again, Liz and the Galway crew!
Multi-generational family visiting Galway to meet relatives for the first time and see cottage where great grandmother lived before immigrating to the US. We rented the Silver Acres apartment for my 70 year old parents which was basically on the ground floor. However they would have been fine with the stairs. The rest of us stayed up in the roomy Silver Teal. It met all of our needs. The welcome basket lasted all week...and was very tasty. We did not rent a car and was able to walk everywhere in town with no problems. Liz was great. She communicated before the arrival for logistics and with check-in the day of arrival. I'm actually writing this review now as I had forgotten to do it and received a "Happy Thanksgiving" email from Liz that really was a nice touch and reminder of our trip. I would highly recommend this rental and would stay again on my next visit. Ireland was absolutely beautiful both in scenery and people.
A Wonderful Stay
We are a group of 4 ladies in our 60's visiting Ireland for the first time. We stayed at The Silver Teal for 4 nights. We were met at the apartment by Liz. She gave us a tour of the premises and shared some recommendations for places to eat and tours that she felt we would find interesting.
On our first day there was a shortage of hot water. We suspected that the apartment has been empty prior to our arrival as there was plenty for the subsequent 3 days. The beds were comfortable; plenty of towels and bed linens. A large basket of food was a surprise. The kitchen is large and very well equipped. We found the entire apartment very comfortable and welcoming.
Within walking distance we found The Crane Pub. In the upstairs space there was a jam session every night beginning around 10 or 10:30. This was awesome! There were recitations, singing in the Irish language and musicians from around the world who came together. It is a very small space ; very lively but when someone decided to sing the entire place fell silent.... So respectful and appreciative .
The apartment is in an ideal location (we did not rent a car); the pictures are accurate and we found it to be clean. We would recommend this apartment to anybody who does not have issues with mobility. The stairs leading to the apartment might be difficult for persons who have physical challenges.
Quirky, But Right
Silver Teal Apartment is a delightful spot, close enough to all the Galway pedestrian action, but at enough of a remove that it's quiet and serene. The apartment has a slightly odd layout (the two bathrooms are side by side down a half-flight of stairs), but when you think about it...why not? Liz was attentive and full of excellent suggestions for eating and entertainment (try the fabulous Kai just up the street). There was a veritable feast of towels, thoughtful selection of food items for our initial consumption, and the beds were incredibly comfy. Hot water on demand! And probably the best washer/dryer I've found in Ireland/Britain (notoriously slow and feeble for North Americans!) The apartment itself is spacious (we were a family of 4 with teens, plus my husband's brother), and we never felt as though we were on top of each other. Plus, we had a family dinner for 9 people at the massive dining table! You do have to walk up, but we were in western Ireland to go hiking, so we weren't bothered in the least, but it might be an issue for folks with mobility issues. The kitchen in general was well-appointed (though I could never find the frying pan and a wok isn't quite the same). Word of warning, particularly for North American drivers used to left side steering wheels and left side driving (oh, and ample roadways): the passage to the back parking space is TIGHT. Keep as close to the wall as you can on the driver's side, and you should be fine. Also, tuck in your side mirrors prior to attempting the narrow passage!
