Nice Galway apartment in the heart of everything!

  • 5 of 5

There was an initial issue with some of the information in the listing, but it seems it was inadvertent. Shane took care of it right away and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. You can't get any close to the Latin Quarter area.

Great property for 2 people. Central location within walking distance of everything in Galway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent nearly a month at this property in October. We were immediately impressed when the owner's father picked us up from the Galway train station when we arrived. The apartment is located in Galway's West End and everything we needed was easily walkable. WIthin 50 meters of the home there are great pubs, restaurants, and a supermarket. It is a 3 kilometer walk along the prom to our favorite swimming hole/diving platform at Blackrock in Salthill. Everyone in the immediate area was kind, with the exception of the barkeeps at the Crane who were a bit crusty and obviously had had a gut full of tourists/Americans. The only recommendation I would have is to add an additional mirror somewhere in the unit. Tonight in London, is the first time I've seen myself from the neck down in 25 days. On the other hand, I've been told by 5 people, including 2 strangers, how fresh and alive I look. I give all the credit to my time in Galway! Can't wait to do it all again next year! :)

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. I have purchased a full length mirror for the apartment. Unfortunately theres not much I can do about the crusty bar tenders in the Crane. Tis just their way. Best Regards Shane

Fantastic location, fantastic host, almost perfect

  • 4 of 5

This was exactly what we had expected, given the very positives of the property, and of Shane, that we had read. The location is in the heart of the west end, just above a very good Italian restaurant (Mona Lisa), and across the road from one of the best Irish music pubs in Galway (the Crane Bar). The apartment itself, being at the back of the building, was very quiet, looking out over the back-yard wildernesses of the area. It's on the first floor, with an easy flight of stairs. It's very well equipped, with a great shower (not always a given in Irish properties). Parking in the immediate vicinity is not free (limited to 2 hours, at 2 euro per hour) during daytime, but free from 6.30 pm to 8.30 am. However, there is plenty of free street parking with 5 minutes walk. (We parked opposite Ward's Hotel in Lower Salthill Road most days, without a problem). Shane was a fantastic host, and responded to all emails, SMS, etc prior to our arrival, and was on hand to greet us, and at the end of our stay.

I have given it 4/5 because for us, the only drawback was the bed, which is a double bed, and a bit too firm, whereas we are used to larger more forgiving beds. (In spite of this, we would return to this property if the opportunity arises in the future).

Thank you Shane

Awesome spot!

  • 5 of 5

The entire experience was very well received. Shane was extremely easy to work with and helpful throughout the whole process. I traveled with my wife to Galway. He met us at the train station and showed us the apartment. He was so kind to recommend some local restaurants, pubs, and things to do as well. Every thing that we checked out that he had suggested, lived up to the billing. Would definitely recommend this place and hope to return in the future.

A fine location in a great city

  • 5 of 5

Shane's apartment is well located in Galway's West End and facing to the rear, we did not have any late night, or early morning, noise to disturb our sleep! Galway was everything we thought it would be - great food, music and easy access to fantastic countryside. Shane was a hospitable host. Thoroughly recommended.
