“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Was my first time doing self catering in Ireland. Was pleasantly surprised.

Underground parking which is handy. Though no lift to car park so luggage was a bit awkward.
All areas were very clean on way up to apartment. We got a 1 bed for 2 adults and a toddler. Travel cot was supplied for us. Apartment was spotless. Had a great view of the promenade. Plenty of facilities with TV ( with connections for usb & hdmi), wifi, all usual kitchen utilities and a washer dryer. No need to bring the kitchen sink with you.
Shower was nice and strong and warm.
Was great to have the space and the balcony was great to sit out and get some air.
Staff were always very helpful and friendly. Helped out with a few discounts too which always helps.

Would recommend anyone travelling with a toddler and upward to get the bigger apartment (2 bed) as bedroom and bathroom was a bit of a squeeze at times.

Actually looked to extend the stay but unfortunately it was booked up which I can see why.
Will look to go back again!!

“The best location”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

We really enjoyed our stay here, and even though the weather wasn't good it didn't matter with such a fabulous location ! We enjoyed just sitting watching the storm. Like others have said there is plenty of room and great wifi but what makes this place stand out is the friendliness of the manager and how he goes the extra mile to help. Our daughter and her partner wanted to go out to a romantic restaurant for their anniversary and he soon sorted a booking in a very romantic restaurant and had the taxi at the front door in no time. He also sorted out a fabulous place for us to dine in with amazing sea views ! We also noticed that he would run to open the front door for guests who were struggling with the wind. Great manager and a great place to stay in an amazing location !

“Friendly, clean and spacious with great sea views”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed with our extended family (4 apartments) and had a great time there. The apartments were clean, spacious and had great WIFI hubs in each room - essential if you have teenagers. The double beds are wide and comfortable and serviced with an en-suite. The surrounding area in Salthill is well serviced with attractions and restaurants and the sea views are fantastic. Our family would jump in to the sea from a local diving pier most mornings - a bracing way to start the day. The bus to Galway city is just outside the door although we walked in. On site parking is adequate.
The concierge/manager, Juan, was really friendly and welcoming. We are definitely likely to stay again.

“Good location with plenty of space”
Reviewed 19 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The Galway Bay Sea View is in a pleasant location with plenty of space and a nice kitchen. The two bedrooms were more than enough space. The washer / dryer does not work well. A mistake we made was booking this location mid 2 week trip with the plan of utilizing the washer and dryer in the unit to wash a week's worth of clothes. Don't make this same mistake, the washer dryer combos do a very poor job of drying and after 4 hours of running with just a pair of jeans and a shirt the articles were not dry enough to place in a suitcase.

Dear michaelfJ1209UT,

Thank you for taking time to share your experience at Galway Bay Sea View Apartments with other travellers.

We are delighted that you have enjoyed the size of the apartments and its location.
We are disappointed to read that our washer/dryer machine did not do a great job at drying your clothes. Normally if our guests address this issue with us directly we are able to give them couple of tips on how to ensure that the clothes are dry.
We really hope this did not take too much away from your overall experience of Galway City.

Thank you once again for your time and we hope to see you again in the future.

Kind Regards
Management Team

“Excellent Accomodations all around”

person found this review helpful

Loved the place! On the Salthill Promenade, right across the street from the beach, the bus stop into town is right outside the entrance to the apartments, the location is ideal. Juan, the manager, was wonderful--very upbeat and helpful. With modern contemporary furnishings and a kitchen equipped with washer/dryer, dishwasher and all appliances and utensils, we felt at home. It was great to have two bathrooms like new...not the cluttered, quaint "shabby chic" decor. Excellent value and atmosphere! My daughter has vacationed here for several years and recommended it to us. We were delighted with our stay here. Great bakery and shops a few blocks away...lovely. My favorite part was sitting on the balcony with tea and croissants each morning while breathing in the fresh salty air.

“Like home but better”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Where do I start, the management Juan and Katrina are amazing and make you feel so welcome. We stayed in a penthouse apartment and it was absolutely stunning.
It was spotless, well equipped and it had so much room. The view from the balcony is breath taking, over looking the sea front at Salthill.
The bedrooms were huge and very comfortable, spacious bathrooms as well. There is a lift that takes you from the lobby to all floors so it is suitable for those with limited mobility which was ideal as my Mum has trouble walking.
The apartments are quiet and centrally located as well with car parking available. I highly recommend and will be back for sure
