Reasonable accommodation, great location, but bad communication and arrival.

  • 3 of 5

Strange...lots of communication leading up to our rental but on the day we arrived...no replies. We informed Martin that we did not have a phone with us and he said that we should email him the day of our arrival and he would let the woman who was going to let us in know. So...we emailed him four times and heard nothing back. We arrived at the apartment and borrowed a phone from a stranger on the street and called the woman and she did not answer her phone. So the stranger texted her, but didn't hear anything back. So then we waited five minutes and borrowed another phone and called her again...still no reply. 10 minutes later she turned up and said she'd been waiting to hear from us all day. But our information said that we couldn't get into the apartment until 4:00...so why was she waiting all day and why didn't Martin let her know what was going on...very unprofessional. I have never heard back from Martin...not one reply to the four emails that I sent on the day of our arrival. Not one word after we arrived to see if everything was ok.

All that being said...the apartment itself was more than adequate. Great location, close to downtown. Building is old and shabby, but the apartment was clean. WiFi worked well. Elevator in building was not very reliable.

Owner's Response: I have carefully reviewed all of the data around this complaint. Unfortunately, the guest had no phone. I was not in Galway at the time, but In order to help, I suggested that she should email me and I would call the housekeeper to arrange access. At 15.17 on the check-in day neither I nor the housekeeper had received any notification of eta from the guest, so I sent her an email requesting that she contact me or the housekeeper. At 17.51, the guest emailed me to say that she had found some wifi and would be at the apartment in 10 minutes - the first notification that we had received all day. I called the housekeeper, who had been waiting at the property since 15.00. The guests were met at the apartment just after 18.00. I called the housekeeper at 18.20 and got confirmation that all was well. I saw no need to reply to the guest as her party had gained access successfully. The building was constructed in 2003 - not particularly old, nor "shabby". I have mentioned the concerns about the elevator to the managing agent. There have apparently been no complaints from any of the other 15 apartments in the block

Great location home from home

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment for a short stay in Galway. The apartment had lovely views over the dock and a great sized balcony on which to enjoy the view. The apartment was a good size, there were 5 of us staying and it was perfectly adequate. Location was great, a short walk to the Latin quarter or Eyre Square. Flat had everything in it you needed, even books, maps, dressing gown and slippers which was a nice touch. Martin emailed us a short while before our stay with details of his housekeeper Theresa, who met us on arrival. I would highly recommend this place to stay (don't be put off by the outside building which looks a little bit tired)!! Thank you for a perfect stay

Great Location, Great View, Great Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with 5 other people to visit Galway and surrounding area. The apartment was the perfect location to hit the town, catch buses and trains for day trips etc. There was plenty of space for 6 people, we did not feel like we were on top of each other at all.

Both Martin and Teresa were very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend!

Great four day stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderfully comfortable apartment and was in a great location for visiting Galway. We so enjoyed the port traffic while sitting on the balcony and the many shops, pubs and restaurants close by. Parking was very convenient and Martin was a great help when we were trying to locate a Renault Servicing Centre. Thanks Martin, we will definitely return if we are back your way again!
