This apartment was perfect. Clean, more than comfortable for 4 adults, updated & beautifully decorated, convenient to sightseeing & restaurants, parking pass included and one of the loveliest waterfront views Galway has to offer! Easy, quick communication. We highly recommend this property when visiting Galway.

I already cannot wait to stay at The Herons Rest Boutique again. It captures the true essence of Galway in all the best ways! It's cozy, homey, clean, the location could not be better, hosts were extremely helpful and friendly...all you could want for your stay. I didn't think I could love Galway any more but this past trip I fell more in love, and I believe that is much to the credit of Herons Rest!

The Herons rest B&B is a really charming self cattering accomodation. This is ideally located in Galway and each evening the spectacle of the river and the seal or swans or cormorans is really fantastic. For a family with two children, the size is perfect. We took the additional charges for car park (10euros per day) which is necessary because the street has no free park. This may be included in the price of the accomodation. This was very clean. All the needed help is easily got from the neighbour since it is the same B&B owner.

A MAGICAL SPACE! Location 10/10! Easy walk to all of the nearby local establishments. Still can't get over the view, waking up to the swans on the water and the sounds of seagulls right out our window were spectacular - just beautiful! We had so much fun and can't wait to get back - and recommend to everyone going to Galway in the future. Can't imagine there is a better place to stay. Service and rental were impeccable - clean and tidy, easy check in/out process, great price. Thanks for an unforgettable night!

I grew up in Galway and know it like the back of my hand. I have been welcoming Guest to stay on The Longwalk for 14 yrs and love to share our wonderful city with visitors. I operate The Herons Rest as a small boutique B&B and now am pleased to have a self catering option available. There is no better place to stay in Galway.
