Malachy's place is a bit far away from Galway center, but it's easily accessible by car and very convenient if you need to get on the M6. The room is clean and the bed is very comfy. Malachy is also very friendly and helpful - he offered a lot of advice for things we could see in the area and he was always checking to see if we're comfortable in his home. The only other thing mentioning is that Malachy has a dog - she's very calm and friendly, but if you are afraid of dogs, this might be a problem. Overall, I wholeheartedly recommend Malachy's place - it's a very good place to stay if you're travelling to Galway by car.

We had a great time there. We slept for one night and it felt really cosy. The location is really quiet, we didn.t hear anything for outside during the nightime. Great host, helped us with everything we needed and we even received the breakfast, a surprise for us. Thanks.

Very grateful that Malachy was able to host on such short notice. Extremely friendly environment, very clean room, available space for parking. Very accessible to Galway City if you have your own form of transport.

Malachy es el mejor anfitrion que he tenido desde que he descubierto airbnb el año pasado. Te trata como un familiar más que viene de visita, te enseña la casa y quiere que estés cómodo en todo momento. Te pregunta si quieres algo para desayunar, tiene guias preparadas para hacer tours por Galway... en definitiva lo que se dice un anfitrión 10!!!
