Cora is one of the best hosts we have ever stayed with. She's very kind, friendly, and helpful. The apartment is comfortable and well-stocked, and the neighborhood is quiet. It is easy to go into the center by walking along the path Cora showed us, taking the bus, or grabbing a taxi. It's a great place to stay when visiting Galway. We highly recommend it!

As our first ever Airbnb experience we weren't entirely sure how it was going to be, and Cora has really set a high bar for all future hosts. She was very helpful with checking us I'm, even driving us from the coach station and showing us all the different ways into the city, a few food places and how to get down to the beach. There's was loads of written information maps and leaflets of things to do around Galway and she even gave us a bit of the history of the city in the ride up. The house was great, a nice retreat for the evenings and a bit if food was even provided, perfect for those busy mornings! We're already looking forward to another trip over to Galway and staying with Cora again in the future

Cora is a pleasant and friendly host. I spent five nights at her house with my sister and Cora picked us to the bus station for pick-up. On the way to her place, she explains the way to take a bus to move from her place to the center of the Galway city and many other places worth to visit. It was the first time that I have experienced such a hospitality from airbnb host. Not only for the information she offered, but also the place was wonderful. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. There is a hot stove so it was useful. Although it takes time to walk to the city, we enjoyed the way too. The scenery is beautiful. If you want to enjoy Galway comfortable, peaceful, and also communicate with a lovely host, this is where to go! I highly recommend Cora's place.

Cora's place was excellent. She went out of her way to make us feel at home--she gave us rides to and from the bus station and helped us book a tour to the Cliffs of Moher!--which we really appreciated! The apartment was cute and clean and comfortable. We would highly recommend anyone to stay with Cora!

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.
