Great location, easy walk to Salthill area and downtown, steps to beach! Secure property with locked indoor car park.Impeccably clean throughout.Well stocked kitchen, including travel tips. Balcony overlooking beach and Salthill Prom. Walk to O'Connors Pub for music and a pint; walk to dinner at DaRoberts. Convenience store right next door, market across street. Delightful!

“Beautiful View of Galway Bay Stay”
Reviewed 6 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Arus Grattan is the perfect place to situate. You are moments from the Promenade, close to all Salthill has to offer, and only a 15 minute walk to Eyre Square in Galway. There is a seaside view from the balcony. The apartment is spacious, well appointed, and Sean Treacy was welcoming and readily available assist you in settling in. The scenery is spectacular and heartbreakingly beautiful. To be so close to the Irish Sea and to have such a wonderful stay is something I will never forget.

“Ideal place to stay to explore Galaway City and the West of Ireland”

people found this review helpful

This location is excellent for tourists looking to explore Western Ireland. We stayed last May in a lovely apartment with an unbeatable view. It was our first time staying and we enjoyed it so much we've continued to book in there every time we go back. The apartment is always clean, well furnished, and has the added bonus of on-premises parking and wifi. The building is located in very nice quiet neighborhood, close to shops, and within walking distance of city centre. The proprietor, Sean, was always helpful and very friendly. We arrived in Galway a few hours later than initially anticipated, and he was extremely understanding and willing to work with us about our arrival time.

“Lovely and convenient apartments by the bay”

Sean was a gracious host, and it was easy to retrieve the keys to the apartments as soon as we arrived, just after noon. We rented the apartments more for the privacy than for the amenities, but it would have been very easy to cook meals and do laundry in the apartment if we had desired. The apartments are an easy taxi ride or a leisurely walk from Galway City center. The walk is a little longer than specified -- about 20-30 minutes, but it's a very nice stroll along the bay. And, staying at Arus Grattan puts you right next to Salthill, a cute little resort town with great access to nice pubs/restaurants, as well as the jogging/walking path along the water.

“Best Apartments I have ever stayed in! No Exaggeration.”

Well after a delayed train, and a over crowded bus we made it to Salthill. After we got of the bus we rang the owner and his son came out to meet us on the street he was very down to earth nothing was to much for him.

He brought us up to the apartments showed us around it, then showed us how to work certain things such as oven, hot water, dish washer, washing machine etc. and brought us back down to show us how to enter and exit the premises as you have to enter via the car park..

The apartments themselves are lovely! Wow! Kitchen very modern, flat screen television, Two very comfy couches, very nice breakfast bar with wooden bench.. We had 2 balconies, one in the living kitchen area had a garden table and chairs and over looked the sea, the other balcony in the bedroom over looked the city.. Bathroom was very big, the en suite in one of the rooms had a shower aswell..

The promenade is a 2 minute walk away, the swimming pool, arcades, amusements, fast food places, restaurants and shops are about 5 -10 minutes walking..

If I ever return I will be booking this place again. I hope all the apartments in the complex are up to the same standard as the one I stayed in.
