We're just back from a very entertaining stag weekend with 14 people in Galway, staying at the Arus Grattan Apartments.
We didn’t get to stay at the Arus Grattan apartments itself, but rather a sister block of apartments just down the road. But that wasn’t an issue, location was great, supermarket and late night shop in the service station just across the road (which came in handy coming back from town late night / early morning!), some very good restaurants (De Roberto’s especially) and bars (bar Oslo is a fine micro brewery and O’Connors for a trad night) just down the road. The apartments themselves were very clean and comfortable and I couldn’t fault them at all. We had no problems getting taxis into Galway city from there, or even walking in (a 15-20 minute walk to the start of high street).
Booking was very easy over phone/email and given that I had to make a few late changes to numbers and I was booking different numbers each night, the owner Sean was very helpful and changed the apartments around to suit the new numbers better and to keep us all close together.
I'd have to disagree with the previous review I read that said that the owner was intrusive, we only saw Sean when we phoned him and he left us to our own devices and in all our dealings he was extremely professional, helpful and accommodating (with plenty of great local tips). All in all he left us feeling very happy and welcome on our weekend in Galway and Salthill and I will be back again.
