Owner showed himself in without knocking to tell us we were making too much noise. We immediately stopped the music but he stayed to then tell us that he wanted to charge more because there were too many people. He repeated this the following day when we were paying, saying that he had just seen a couple come out of...

My husband and I stayed here over the summer. We were disappointed because we thought "sea view" implied that we would have one of the forward facing apartments with a balcony facing the sea front as the photograph above shows. Unfortunately, this was not the case. You will only get one of the forward facing apartments in the photo if...

I stayed here with a few friends over the race weekend and will not be back. The apartments were well located, and to the majority clean, and well appointed, hairdryers etc. However the kitchen was ill equipped. There was no coffee or tea, or sugar or other condiments that I am used to finding in self catering apartments meaning that...

Just back from 3 nights brill holiday with three perfect warm and sunny days in Arus Grattan. We picked these apts based on Tripadvisor reviews. We had no problem booking via email and apt was booked as soon as owner received our deposit. The apts are quite easy to find and are almost on the prom at Salthill. The location...

Technically I wasn't staying here but had called round for an hour to meet my sister and her friends who were staying here before they went out for the night and experienced first hand the way they were treated by the owner! Even having worked in the tourism sector in the past myself I have never seen such bad customer...

On this, my six month anniversary, I thought I'd finally take the time to sit down and write a long overdue review for the Arus Grattan Apartments, Galway, where we stayed (18-25FEB12) for the first leg of our honeymoon. I was in charge of the honeymoon and was thrilled when my bride suggested Éire as our destination around June/July of...

The other terrible and poor reviews on here are definitely worth taking notice of! The owner Sean Treacy, proved to be completely irrational, aggressive and most arrogant. We were 4 girls staying there for the weekend for the races and a birthday celebration. I invited a few friends who were staying in various other hotels to join us at the...

We stayed in a two bedroom with a sliver of a sea view and were quite pleased with the accommodations and location. Sean Treacy is helpful and full of tips to get the most of the Galway flavor. We would definitely return. The washer/ dryer combo was a plus to help us get through an 18 day trek through Ireland...

Arus Grattan was light, spacious, clean, and well equipped. The view from the balcony was very nice. Good location, being near the Promenade, a grocery store, pubs and resturants. The walk into town was a little longer than expected, which can be a tiny problem with the fickle Irish weather. However, a city bus stop is near. The owner was...

We're 2 French tourists who stayed in Arus Grattan, 21-24 May 2012. The apartment is clean, well equipped and had an exceptional location (15 minutes walk from historical center of Galway)and perfectly located for all guided tours of the region. The fine grocery is only 1 minute from the apartment (around the corner!) All in all, we had a wonderful...
