Great apartment close to everything in the beautiful town of Galway. Eugene was a wonderful host, a great communicator and provided lots of information for us to work out what to do and where to go. The apartment had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay.

Eugene's place was awesome! Everything was exactly as described - clean, great location (walking distance to everything), his communications were fast and helpful. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone visiting Galway. The welcome packet he has is very thorough and super useful. He covers everything! I'm looking forward to coming back to Galway and hope I can stay here again. Thanks for everything, Eugene!

This place is right where you want it to be - walking distance to everything. Eugene is really helpful and communicated right away. There was an issue with the washer when we got there, but Eugene offered to have our clothes laundered! Super nice :) The only issue is that the size of the apartment was much smaller than I anticipated, especially the bathroom. There is no room to sit around, and the bathroom is really tight. The shower didn't work that well, and there was an issue with a drain. I sent that feedback to Eugene so I'm sure he'll take a look at those things.

Response from Eugene:
Hi Kevin, Thanks for your feedback. I'm glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay, and I do apologise for the small maintenance issues you encountered. I can confirm that they have been dealt with. Thank you for bringing them to my attention. Unfortunately, these things happen from time to time. Regarding the size of the apartment, I've tried in a number of instances to make it clear in the listing description that this is a studio apartment. The photographs reflect the space accurately, and I don't make any claims about it that could be seen as misleading or untrue. Galway is a medieval city, and many of its properties are simply tighter on space as a result. With regard to your comment about not being able to "sit around", there is a seating area with space for 2 people by the window as well as 2 foldable dining chairs in the property. There is also seating for 2 people in the private courtyard at the rear of the property. With any city centre location, there is a trade off to be made between budget and available space. I have numerous other central properties in the city at higher price points, with ample space. I'd be happy to accommodate you at a larger apartment next time you're in town. All the best. Eugene

We enjoyed staying here, and Eugene's recommendations for places to eat and things to see were spot on and made our stay in Galway really great. A bit noisy as you're right in the center of everything, but that's part of the fun.

Response from Eugene:
Thanks Danielle. You gotta put up with a bit of city centre bustle if you want to be in the middle of the action, but it's not that bad all things considered. Glad to hear that you enjoyed my recommendations. :)

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!
