I recently had the pleasure of staying at Arus Grattan, Grattan Road, Upper

Salthill, Galway. This is an ideal location for an individual or family vacation. The facility is beautiful, clean, safe and very well cared for.

The location is wonderful; right across the street from the Galway Bay with views that are breathtaking morning, afternoon and night. Salthill has a 4 mile Promenade that is great for exercise, meeting the very friendly neighbors and having a swim if the weather is right. The walk will take you to central Galway in 25 minutes with great restaurants, shops and historic sites. 5 Minutes in the opposite direct in takes you to the village of Salthill with many restaurants, some shops and even an interesting little casino.

Both Galway and Salthill have cultural events good for adults and families. Check out “Trad on the Prom” for Irish music and dancing (a ten minute walk). Regional tours and day trips will be easy by car and all of the local touring charters will pick you up in Salthill.

Sean and his team are friendly, professional and take the extra steps to make sure you feel welcome and oriented. I have already made a reservation to return. If you want a place on the Galway Bay – I strongly recommend the Arus Grattan Holiday Home.

My family recently had the pleasure of visiting this lovely home on the top level. The views of Galway Bay were priceless and the building is nearly on the boardwalk. The customer service provided by Sean and his son, Caithill, was fantastic. They were very friendly and helped explain everything properly upon our check-in. The owners live nearby and are available if anything comes up that you may need. We will definitely be staying there again upon our next visit to Ireland. Many, many thanks from California! The Stephens/Sosa family.

Great find for all!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in unit 7 for two weeks. The unit had a spectacular view and was clean. Wifi worked fine and secure parking was a great plus. 15 minute walk to the main area of Galway which was enjoyable along the water or through the town - 2 minute walk to downtown Salthill with groceries, pubs and restaurants.... a nice break from the busy side of Galway. The prom is literally across the street and was a safe, clearn and well lit place to walk. Runner in the family was able to run, daily - for miles along the water and into town - it was perfect and peaceful. Elevator in building was speedy and clean. Towels provided and plenty of kitchen supplies for all.

Would definitely return and recommend to any. Sean and his son were so kind and helpful and responded to any questions quickly.

A great find for all! Also about a 30 minute walk to University of Galway and a great spot for families visiting people at the college, as well. Check it out!

Felt Like Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Arus Grattan for 7 nights and were very pleased with our accommodations. Sean was wonderful with getting us squared away & making us feel like we just arrived home. He made himself available if we needed him & guided us to places to eat, drink & shop...but otherwise let us be. We had unit 4 with a lovely view of the bay & rainbows. Walking to Galway City Centre varied with which route we wanted to take..... along the bay/prom or through the quaint neighborhoods.... 20 to 30 ". And Salthill, being even closer, had some great little stores and restaurants. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. My husband and I can't wait to get back "home" to Ireland.

Great location and view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Arus Grattan for almost 3 months from June 1 to August 27, 2015. We were in Unit seven which has a great view of Galway Bay. There is secure parking under the building. There is a secure entrance gate with a keypad entry system. There is an elevator from the parking area which made it easy to transport luggage.

Our unit was a two bedroom two bathroom apartment with a nice deck overlooking the water. It has a full kitchen and small eating area. The showers were good and there was adequate hot water for four people to shower in the morning.

The location is perfect. It is near Salthill and walkable to Galway City. Salthill has a nice selection of good restaurants and pubs. Galway City is about 1 mile and we walked there most days in about 30 minutes.

Sean and his son were great at helping with directions and information about the area. They were quick to respond to any concerns we had about the apartment.

I would definitely recommend this property.

Excellent location, excellent host!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental for my family of 4; plenty of room, tidy apartment, well-equipped and with amazing views! Sean was a very accommodating host and gave us tips on the neighborhood ( where to shop, good pubs, etc). Perfectly situated, and only a 10/15 minute walk into Latin Quarter of Galway...
