Great location and pictures are accurate. Can be noisy due to the location as the bar across the alley plays music til 2:30 am, however if the bedroom windows are closed, it's not too bad. We knew this going in and were okay with it. Super friendly and helpful staff at the hostel! A good stay!

The apartment is perfectly located and it's right in the city centre. Although it's close to most pubs, it's really quiet at night. The guys recommended us to go to an Irish dance and music show (Trad on the Prom) and it was simply amazing! Anyone staying in Galway from May to September should definitely go :)

This place is perfect for two people looking to explore the city. It is right in the heart of the action, so it is very loud well into the night- great if you are the ones out making all the noise, but not so much if you are wanting to relax! Everything is walking distance which is great! Make sure to walk from the train station- only like 8-10 minutes. A taxi takes nearly 20 for some reason! We had no problems with anything- very tight stair, so no big luggage!

The place was easy to find and located on a fun street. The rented AirBnB was exceptionally clean and easily checked-in. They stored our bags before we checked-in and after we checked out. A very nicely run establishment. Great locations! I would definitely rent again next time I'm in Galway.

Very central apartment right in the middle of Galway night life. Many choices of restaurants and pubs. The apartment itself was adorably small, but perfect for 2 people who'll be spending most of their time out and about. I would totally rent this place again.
