The space

Bright, comfortable and cosy twin bedroom apartment with kitchenette. The apartment is attached to my home but has its own independent entrance ensuring your privacy, and I am just next door if you need help with anything. There is constant hot water available for showers and towels and bedlinen are provided.
The small kitchen area is equipped with a fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster, crockery, cutlery and glasses: everything you need to prepare simple meals. *Please note there is no hot plate or other oven.
The fridge will be stocked before you arrive with your breakfast essentials, so there is no need to rush off to the supermarket.

Guest access

The apartment has its own private entrance, and a small patio area. Guests will also have access to the clothes line at the rear of the house. Private off street parking is provided, and should you have a bicycle or motorbike there is also an area for these.

Interaction with guests

As the apartment is attached to my home, I am available to you should you need anything.

The neighbourhood

My home is in a peaceful suburb of Galway city. The beach is a stones throw from the house and a lovely local shop (with chinese take away) is at the bottom of the road as is the bus stop into the city.

Getting around

The 402 Bus goes from the bottom of the road (2mins from house) every half hour on weekdays, which will bring you directly to Eyre Square.

Eyre Square is 10 minutes away, Salthill 15 minutes. Galway Racecourse approximately 7 minutes. (Peak times will be longer).
Taxi to / from Eyre Square between €8 - €10.

I'll be happy to show you a beautiful scenic walk into town used by locals. This walk has lovely views across Galway Bay and takes approximately 30minutes.

Galway has a 'rent a bike' scheme should you decide cycling is the way for you.

Other things to note

With both Connemara and County Clare (Cliffs of Moher), all part of the Wild Atlantic Way on the doorstep you won't be short of opportunities to view some of Irelands most beautiful scenery. Medieval Galway City is a bustling, vibrant, friendly town. Full of music both in the pubs and on the streets and with eateries to suit all tastes and pockets from Michelin starred restaurants to delicious wraps at the local Saturday market.

Cora has been amazing, extremely accommodating and her recommendations of where to eat and what to do led to a fantastic experience. Also great value for money. Thank you!!

Cora literally redefined my world view of an amazing hostess. She waited for us when we arrived; took us on a tour around the city and the beaches; and gave a ton of helpful tips about getting around, sights and whatnot. Cora's place was impeccable, beautiful cozy part of her house (completely separate from her own living quarters). She stocked her fridge full of just about enough to get us going in the mornings. We really appreciated this. Other than that you could find all kinds of niceties here and there that you don't really expect and get surprised that she thought of that too. All in all I wholeheartedly reccommend Cora's place for anyone. Even location wise it's perfect in a quiet, green suburb near the sea, but still walkable distance from the city center.

Cora's place was excellent and so was she. We felt very at home and taken care of. The fridge had a few items in it when we arrived and we were very thankful after not having eaten in a while. We stayed only two nights and the location was great. Cora showed us a nice walk into town and helped us when we really needed it. Overall, it was a very lovely experience!

Cora User ProfileCora is a superhost.

I am an outgoing person, who loves meeting new people. Having lived in Galway for most of my adult lift there is not much I don't know about the place. I have travelled extensively and I love learning about new cultures.
Our home is a spacious family home, all of my children are fully grown, but my visiting grandchildren ensure that my house is kept reasonably child proof.
