Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was very comfortable with an outstanding view of Galway Bay. Sean, the owner was very helpful and came to meet us when we first arrived and couldn't find our way.

The Promenade along the bay is a wonderful place to walk and enjoy the view. It's a short walk to the Salthill area and a fun pub and good restaurant. A little longer walk to get to Galway City center but an easy drive.

I would recommend the Arus Gratten apartments as a base when in the Galway area.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location. Near the bay and close to the city center. The apartment was comfortable and cozy. Sean was a welcoming host. He took extra time to make sure we knew how to operate things and provided us with lots of ideas for food, drink, and sightseeing.

Amazing view for a great Value

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 26 year old daughter and I stayed here for two nights at the end of our vacation in Ireland. Sean was very gracious by "finding" us at the gas station when we missed our turn. The beds are comfortable and the location was perfect for walking into the historical district while enjoying the local area on the way.

Stunning view!

Nice apartment with a stunning view. Upon our arrival, Sean greeted us warmly and oriented us to the Salthill neighborhood. The apartment is in a very good location with a great gourmet grocery right around the corner.

room with a view

  • 5 of 5

we stayed in the penthouse apartment and really enjoyed the view of Galway Bay from the balcony - it is the one featured on the website. Sean and his son were helpful in every respect. The penthouse is slightly smaller than other apartments but was fine for us three. Kitchen was well equipped ( suggestion for Sean - more plates would be welcome).

As reported by other reviewers the property is in a fantastic location - high class deli round the corner and the fantastic O'Conners Pub 5 minute walk away. !5 minute walk into the town of galway itself with all Pubs and Eating places too many to mention. A must see is the TRAD ON THE PROM show in the Galway Bay Hotel, 10 min walk, Top class Riverdance type entertainment.

Off Street secure parking is a bonus but the view from these quality apartments really does take the biscuit.

Thanks Sean for a great holiday. hope to make it back

A great apartment in a delightful city.

  • 5 of 5

Arus Gratten was terrific! We were greeted by Sean, the owner, who is full of Irish charm as well as information about the area. There's an elevator to the apartments which have all the necessary creature comforts. There are small heaters in the living room that look like little fireplaces and are just enough to take the chill off. The kitchens are well equipped including a dishwasher, electric kettle, electric coffee pot, microwave, and combo washer/dryer. There are adequate dishes, wine glasses, pots and pans. Each balcony has a small table and chairs so you can sit outside and watch the sea and sunset. The drapes and furniture are attractive and look quite new. Everything is comfortable and feels "homey." There's indoor or outdoor parking for the car that we never took out of the garage because you can walk everywhere, to Pubs, restaurants, a good wine shop, a cheese shop, a couple food markets, as well as into downtown Galway and along the waterfront. We loved the whole experience: the apartment, Galway and Ireland. In fact, we plan to return, next time renting more apartments and bringing our adult children.

Galway, City of the Tribes, is a medieval city dating back to the 5th century. A thriving and vibrant artistic community, the home base of the International renowned Macnas and Druid Theater company.

A whirlwind of activity with Art galleries, old book shops, pubs, restaurants, theater, arts, culture, and traditional Irish music. All centered in the narrow streets bustling with activity and friendly people.

Enjoy great shopping, the city is proud to offer an array of shops to cater for all tastes. The Canal walkways, the salmon fishing at the salmon weir bridge and the meeting of the sea and river bed between long walk and the old fishing village of the Claddagh create a peaceful escape from all the bustle.

The nearby village of Salthill over looking Galway Bay provides a seaside recreational facility with family leisure activities, swimming complex, golfing, horse riding and promenade walks.
