Central, modern, and peaceful are the keywords here. Overlooking the city, directly across from the train and bus stations. Because it's on the top floor, it's deceptively quiet. Full service kitchen, WiFi, TV, Electric Shower, Linens and Towels.

The space

Located on the rooftop of a multi-storey parking unit, this modern apartment boasts an open plan living/dining/kitchen with 2 bedrooms and bathroom. The apartment sleeps 5 in total. (1 x 4ft bed, 1 x 3ft bed, and 1 x 4ft6 Sofa Bed w/topper) The sofa bed will only be assembled and dressed for groups of more than 3, unless specifically requested. Designed specifically for holiday accommodation, providing you all the amenities you need to enjoy your stay. It's the little touches that matter the most, we think.

Lit by a large front facing window, the living area boasts a corner sectional sofa with 2 additional armchairs so everyone has a comfy seat from which to watch TV. Pick a DVD from the available selection or tune into one of over 100 digital TV channels. You can even login to your Netflix account through the smart TV! Dimmable LED spot lighting allows you to set the perfect mood to relax.

Set the table for dinner in a flash! The table and chairs conveniently fold away to maximize the living space for everyone to enjoy when they're not eating.

The full service kitchen has an oven, hob, fridge, freezer, microwave, and dishwasher. Cutlery, crockery, glassware, cookware, pots, pans, utensils; it's all there. Again, dimmable LED spot and cabinet lighting allow you to set the perfect mood. Fancy a nice bottle of wine? Why not use the decanter provided and crack out the big red wine glasses to really get those taste buds dancing.

The main bedroom has a 4ft bed with a bright view over Galway Bay. The large wardrobe will hold all your clothing and the full length mirror lets you get ready before your big night out. Bedside tables, lamps and an alarm clock all make things a little more comfy.

The 2nd bedroom has all the same facilities as the first, except there's a single (3ft) bed instead of a 4ft bed.

For groups of 4 or 5, the corner sectional sofa in the living room expands to form a 4ft6 double bed. A mattress topper and full set of linens, towels and duvet are provided to ensure that you'll get just as good a night's sleep as you would in one of the bedrooms.

The bathroom has a walk-in wet area with an electric shower, electric blow heater and beauty lighting around the vanity mirror.

Ireland's a rainy country, so we've provided umbrellas for your convenience. Need to do laundry? There's a great local laundrette just a few minutes walk away (details in your welcome pack)

If you have special requests, we'd love to hear them. There's nothing like having everything come together perfectly on a trip away and we want your stay with us to be one to remember. If we can help, we will.

Guest access

You have access to everything in the apartment except our storage cupboards. You'll also have use of the communal outdoor space directly outside the property.

Access to street level is by elevator or stairs and a number of codes are needed to get through security doors.

Interaction with guests

I'm contactable at all times, while you're staying with us and I'm happy to answer any questions you have. I like to try and meet people when they arrive, but if that's not possible or you're happy to show yourself around without me, I can make arrangements so you can let yourself in.

Our welcome pack contains all the information you'll need to enjoy your stay, including personal recommendations for restaurants, pubs, and attractions.

Other things to note

We're a family run operation that has been successfully letting for nearly 30 years. We pride ourselves on providing great hospitality and love welcoming new people to Galway and the West of Ireland.

The only thing to note would be that parking is not included. However, there are parking spaces available downstairs, with favourable rates. I'm happy to provide more details if needed.

We loved the space, the decor and furnishings. Modern and funky and warm. Amazing kitchen facilities which we didn't use as we used Eugene recommendations for dining instead which were very accurate! Bed was a standard double so to avoid a death in the night we had a room each. Appreciated the cold drinks in the fridge. Our only wish was there was a washing machine instead of a freezer. Was €22 to use the laundrette.

Response from Eugene:
Thanks for the feedback Shelley. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and took a few of my recommendations for dining. Yes, unfortunately there is no washing machine at the property, but it is not included as a listed amenity on the listing description. Sorry about that. Of course, you're more than welcome back again. :)

Eugene User ProfileEugene is a superhost.

Awarded "Irish Community Champion" at AirBnB Oscailte, Dublin: May 2016.
Chosen as "Host Educator" for the Airbnb Open in LA 2016.
Strong advocate for home-sharing and the AirBnB community in Ireland.

I'm an out-going, entrepreneurial type.
Always have a new idea on my mind.
I'm a qualified biomedical engineer.
I was an Irish dancer for 20 years, 8 of them professionally.
Hospitality and food/drink are passions of mine.
I love travelling, and meeting all kinds of new people.
Other interests include interior design, photography, yoga and meditation.
I have a healthy affection for red wine. ;)
I love solving problems and coming up with new ideas to develop.
I love my city. The food here is vibrant and exciting, the arts are everywhere and the atmosphere is laid back and friendly.
I know every restaurant in town, so tell me what you like and I can recommend a place.

My life motto: "You're not promised tomorrow. So make today count."

My family has been letting property for over 30 years so we like to think we know a thing or two about making people feel welcome and comfortable.

Generally, I take a hands-off approach to hosting. I'll be in touch before you arrive to ensure you know where you're going. When you arrive, you'll be able to collect the keys using instructions that I'll send you. Of course, someone is available immediately if you have any questions or troubles during your stay.

I'm an easy going traveller. I prefer a bit of spontaneity and don't like to plan things too much. A bit of personality, hospitality and humour go a long way with me.

Some of my favourite places to visit include Barcelona, Amsterdam and the Netherlands in general, Berlin, Munich, London and Paris.

India, Vietnam, Japan and South Korea are next on my list!
