“The perfect Galway experience!”
Reviewed 24 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This is the second time I have chosen to stay at Shane's flat as opposed to the myriad options that exist in lovely Galway. His place is in a perfect location if you are a person who likes to have a less "touristy" feel to your vacation while still having access to all of the amenities offered by the city. Everything is within walking distance but you get to "live like a local" in a wonderful neighborhood. If you choose to walk into the center of the city then it is not far at all; but if you don't feel like it, or if the weather is not cooperating, then there is no need. Everything you could possibly want is nearby -- wonderful coffee, excellent restaurants, a great little grocery store, etc. It is, in a word, perfection. Shane is a fabulous host who goes out of his way to give you suggestions for whatever you might want. I will be staying with Shane again...in fact, I won't stay anywhere else in Galway. Sláinte!

This flat is perfect for either short or long-term travelers to Galway. I spent a month here and was thrilled with the accommodations. Having been to Galway several times before, I knew the area well. I wanted to stay very close to town so that I could have easy access to NUIG (an internship was the reason for my stay). But I didn't want to be in the heart of the central tourist area. I also wanted something safe, clean and well managed. I can say without reservation that Shane's place fit the bill! The flat is exactly as shown in the pictures -- no surprises. It was clean and functional with no problems whatsoever. The West End of Galway has a neighborhood feel to it and has a lot of wonderful establishments that are in easy walking distance to the flat. For coffee lovers (like me!) if you choose to stay here you will find yourself right across the street from Urban Grind, a fabulous cafe that knows how to make a serious cup. Ernie's is also nearby -- a great little market for fresh fruit, water and some specialty foods. So despite being a few minutes walk away from the busy part of town, you will not feel isolated at all.
Shane himself is an extremely helpful person who is eager to help with directions, suggestions for food, entertainment or sightseeing. He checked on me to make sure that my stay was going well and to see if I needed anything. He was easy to reach via email or phone and always responded quickly.
In short, rent this flat if you are going to Galway! You will be very happy that you did.
