My son and I recently spent two weeks at the Furbo Suite in the Granary Suites. The apartment in this old mill building is the perfect location for a Galway City stay. Situated adjacent to the River Corrib; it is a picturesque, tranquil location. The apartment is walking distance to the Latin Quarter, Eyre Square, and Galway Bay. Even though we were staying during restricted movements of level 5 lockdown, we enjoyed walking around the surrounding area every day. The apartment owner, Irene, is fabulous and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable during our stay. We will definitely stay at The Furbo Suites in the Granary Suites when we visit Galway again! 5 Stars! :)

It's nearly impossible to adequately describe this amazing apartment but I'll try. We spent nearly 2 months here and felt at home the minute we were greeted by the charming owner, Irene. The views of the river have been raved about on every review and once you actually see the rushing water, the swans, the kayaks and the Galway Bay in the distance , you'll know why. The penthouse duplex was perfect for the 2 of us and allowed for visits from family in the States as well. The location was ideal for not having a car. Literally minutes to the City Center, Spanish Arch, restaurants and nightlife on Quay Street and a 10 minute walk from Eyre Square and the bus station for Shannon Airport. The apartment has everything you need for meal preparation , modern bathrooms and comfy bedrooms. The living area is light-filled and open and ( I have to say it again! the VIEWS!) We would ( and certainly hope to) stay here again in a heartbeat.

The Granary Suites must be in the best location in Galway! The penthouse Furbo Suite is a duplex overlooking the river, with views right out to the sea. Not only are the stunning views mesmerising though: the suite itself is beautiful and really tastefully appointed. In addition, even during the busiest weekend in the summer, when street life is at its liveliest, the suite is perfectly quiet. Everything you could possibly need is there and should you need anything that your host hasn't thought of - highly improbable! - she is easy to contact and ready to help at any time. Irene welcomed us personally, helped us with our luggage, explained how things work at the suite and generally in Galway and she has prepared a great folder with all kinds of info and suggestions. In addition, you'll find a thoughtful welcome gift. Galway itself provided the rest. Unsurprisingly, our stay was wonderful!

My family and I spent over a week in the conveniently located Granary suites over Christmas. Our host Irene was so welcoming and easy to contact. The apartment had everything we needed with wonderful views over the river and out to Galway bay. Many lovely restaurants, cafes and bars in the area. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking a convenient base in Galway city

We can wholeheartedly endorse previous comments about the warm welcome given to us by Gerald initially and then Irene. They typified the friendly and helpful attitude we received everywhere we went. The apartment is ideally located and I never got tired of the views down the river and across the bay. Reading whilst sat in those bay windows was a holiday in itself. We crammed a lot into our week but feel we only scratched the surface. I have been wanting to come to Galway for a long time and my only disappointment is that we didn't come sooner. We deliberately coincided the visit with the arts festival and managed to see 2 plays and a music evening in addition to several lively pubs which also had live music. We also enjoyed day trips to Arran, Connemara and the Cliffs of Moher all of which I would strongly recommend. We will be back again to visit as soon as we can. Tony

Irène est une hôtesse très sympathique (bouteille de rosé et gateaux de bienvenue). Elle a répondu rapidement à tous nos mails. L'appartement spacieux est idéalement placé et la place de parking est importante dans un centre-ville où les places sont rares.

A very comfortable apartment, Irene the owner was very friendly. The views over the river out towards the sea are fabulous. Very quiet despite the fact that you are located so centrally for all the shops bars and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

From even before our visit we were met with prompt and clear communication. We met Irene on arrival and the place was amazing. So lovely and clean with such a warm welcome. We felt that we were visiting the house of a friend. So well equipped... even a pen and shopping pad. Those little things that you forget to pack. I shall never forget the views and often found myself just stopped mid task as I gazed out into the mouth of the river as it passes to Galway bay. Amazingly peaceful. It really is central with parking! There is something about that building. An aura of peace and relaxation. We took in so many things. Chowder in Clifden at O'malleys. Walk along the promenade with ice cream at salthill. Live music at taafes on shop street (5.30 performance is great opportunity for children to experience the music and atmosphere) aquarium was a real experience the staff make you feel so welcome. Galway Crystal factory shop is stunning and also great for gifts. Meals out at the kings head bistro and Munroe's. A fantastic holiday from a beautifully looked after base. Thankyou Irene from all three of us.

Wir waren 7 Tage in Galway und haben uns in der Ferienwohnung sehr wohl gefühlt. Irene ist eine ganz liebe freundliche und hilfbereite Wirtin ohne aufdringlich zu sein. Die FEWO liegt im Herzen der Stadt - gleich im Kneipenviertel. Ein paar Meter laufen und man ist im pulsierenden Leben von Galway. Parkmöglichkeiten bestehen in der Nähe an einer Kirche - 20 Euro für eine Woche - was in Ordnung ist. Gleich auf der Hauptstraße ist auch ein Kaffee in dem man ein irisches Frühsück erhält und leckeren Kaffee holen kann, falls man in der FEWO frühstücken möchte. Dort ist selbstverständlich alles vorhanden um sich das Essen auch selbst zuzubereiten. Galway ist ein super Ausgangsort für Touren in die Umgebung und so kann man jeden Tag ein ausgefülltes Irlandprogramm erleben. Die Räume sind großzügig geschnitten und der Blick ist einfach sagenhaft. Alles ist sauber und ordentlich. Nur das Bad ist eben halt typisch englisch - mit getrennten Wasserhähnen für heiß und kalt. Aber dazu reist man nach Irland. Uns hat es super gefallen.
