Condo/Apartment
Cosy apartment located in the real heart of traditional, old Galway. Very close to everything, 2 minutes walk to Shop Street and Quay Street. Across the road from the world famous traditional music bar, The Crane and only a short distance to the beaches of Salthill. The area is abundant with excellent restaurants which cater to all tastes. Clean, comfortable, new luxury apartment with all mod cons. The apartment is furnished to the highest standards. There is a 40 inch smart TV and high speed broadband (360Mb/sec)

I would like guests to be respectful of other tenants living in the building. Ideally I would like guests over 25 years old. The apartment is furnished to the highest standards so I cannot allow parties.

This West End apartment was in the very best location! Everything on your doorstep and yet, surprisingly incredibly quiet. Apartment had everything I needed - great place to relax and enjoy all that Galway City has to offer!

This apartment is right in the city centre, we parked our car at the Small Crane carpark on arrival and didn't move it again until we were leaving. The apartment is newly decorated and spotlessly clean, very secure and, given its location, relatively quiet. We were extremely pleased with our stay and would definitely return. Thanks Shane

After searching at length for a place to stay in Galway City, I was truly guided and blessed to have found Shane's Apartment in the West end of Galway City. Since I was traveling on my own; did not have a car, a female and needed to feel safe on my own and near public transportation the apartment fit everything I needed. It was perfect and not just for one. It is perfect if you are a couple. There is one flight of stairs to the apartment, Supervalue is a grocery store within walking distance for all your needs..The kitchen is well stocked for you need to prepare meals. But other than breakfast, I enjoyed finding new coffee houses and cafes to dine out. The food is amazing in Galway! The owner has two apartments and I stayed in both. The back apartment has a lovely small balcony and it was gorgeous to open up the blinds to have the sun streaming inside with neighborhood cats on the adjoining roofs!. It was very private and quiet. The internet worked flawlessly which I needed as I was working while enjoying the time away. Shane, the hairdryer is better than mine at home and I loved having the washing machine, and iron! I fell in love with RTE Radio and Irish TV. Shane and his Father, Michael could not be more charming and hospitable. Shane continued to text me to see if everything was grand and answered questions immediately. I was greeted warmly and collected and returned to the Coach station when I departed. I love this neighborhood and got to know the locals and their businesses. You are located on a street with some of the best small restaurants and pubs for music and entertainment. I enjoyed the walk into the city center every day and the long walk on the Prom and to SaltHill. I hope my husband can return with me in future so we can enjoy this most cozy and wonderful place to stay. Thank you Shane and Michael for making my 2017 Ireland experience a dream come true. Cheers

This apartment is in a very good location. The street has many great places to eat. Kai is very special only 50 metres away and the menue changes daily. Short walk to the river, canals and the city centre. Shane was very easy to comunicate and arranged a parking permit for our car for the 5 nights we stayed.

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.
