Dunaras Village
Ranked #163 of 189 Galway B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Stayed here for 5 nights,
Staff were distant to the point of being rude,
At check in we were told to wait outside and got the impression we were not welcome
When I checked out the girl at the counter never looked up once, no thank you, never asked how the stay was etc. (Take note..train you staff to deal with the public)
Room was basic to say the least, these are budget accom to get your price accordingly.
old 14" crt tv.
1 toilet roll per toilet
1 bag provided for the bin,
no cleaning products at all
Apartment was reasonably clean(but dated) but the tiles had embedded dirt, not that hard to remove with some oxyclean and elbow grease.
A lot of stairs aswell in case that matters to you, 3 flights up with no elevator and one of the rooms is via a spiral staircase.

Location is good,
Salthill is about 4 minutes drives and parking is free (well done Galway Co Co)
Galway city is about 10 minutes but traffic is a bit of a nightmare and as usual signposts are not great.

Overall I would not recommend unless you get a really good deal and only plan to use it to store clothes and sleep in.

Room Tip: Find out how may stairs before you book

After staying there for an academic year I advice students to stay well away of it. The staff were rude and the accomodation was overpriced. The staff were never happy to hear of any complaints or requirements you needed. Although we kept the apartment tidy the lack of vadelation caused mould to appear.

A group of 4 of us stayed here during the Galway races, we are all aged in our Mid-20's and this place was ideal for our needs. It was a 10 minute taxi ride to the city centre, approximately 10 euro. The rooms were big, the apartment was very spacious. There was a tv, full kitchen, 2 bathrooms etc, very good facilities. It was very quiet at night, no difficulty sleeping. We didn't use the shop so I can't comment, but loads of free parking as well. Very good experience.

We stayed in Dunaras recently and we will definitely be going back again next year. The apartment was lovely and clean and very bright and everything we needed was there. They provided us with a cot and high chair for our 3 month old baby which meant we didnt have to bring our own. The staff at the reception were lovely and went out of their way to look after us and the little shop was fantastic. There was also a little green outside for our 2 year old to run around on. We decided to stay in an apartment rather than a hotel this year as we had a new baby and it was the best decision we made as everything was very relaxed and we were never disturbed. We would highly recommend these apartments and we are already looking forward to going back next year!

Room Tip: If you have a buggy it would be best to ask for a room on the bottom floor

First impressions were fresh smell of cleaning and large apartment. Ideally located, not far from sea and lovely area. Alot more than we expected.

Room Tip: Alot of steps so older travelers should book a ground floor.

We stayed here for 4 nights during the galway races. We were advised when booking that it would be galway races week and the place can be hectic around that time. The staff assured us our apartment would be in a quieter family block. Well thankfully that's exactly what we got, no problems whatsoever, our kids met other kids from the block and played football on the green. Nice holiday atmosphere about the place. Its a great place to go for a staycation and for the standard of accommodation on offer the prices are excellent.
