“Galway Sunrise”

Stayed at the Galway bay Sea View apartments during the February half term for 4 nights with my wife and 2 kids and had a great time. The apartments were very easy to find. Once you are actually on the Salthill Prom you can't miss them. They are right there on the sea front. On arrival in Galway there are plenty of signposts for Salthill. We arrived from Knock.

The apartments had everything we needed. Great kitchen facilities/ ironing board / two bathrooms/wifi etc. We did have an absence of forks which was soon rectified by the girl on reception.

On checking in, you are given a key code for the front and rear doors( there is offroad parking at the rear). The apartment block seams reasonably secure and I certainly had no concerns. There was always someone present on reception during the day and a there was a number to ring should you need anything in the evening.

From the balcony and large windows there were fantastic views of the bay and promenade. We were lucky enough to have three days of great weather. The sunrises were breathtaking and lit up the whole apartment.

The apartments were very warm with adjustable heating throughout. Though the showers were not always the hottest. There was a thermostat booster on the wall which we probably should of got someone off reception to show us how to use properly.

It was a decent walk into the city centre, which we did with 2 kids several times. Or alternatively there is a bus stop right outside. A taxi ride into the centre (Jurys Hotel near Quay St) cost us just over 10 euros. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in the local area. We frequented The Olso bar, which has craft beers, good food and open fires. Try a pint of Full Sail. or Galway Hooker. We had an excellent meal in The Galleon. Where the staff were Very friendly and the fish pie was superb. A visit to O'Conners Famous Bar is a must. Be aware that it did'nt seem to open until 7.30 at night. And also that children are not allowed in pubs in Ireland after 9pm. I don't think this is the case if you are having a meal.

I did think a little more attention to cleanliness of the balcony was needed, where on arrival there was a cigarette butt and a ball of chewing gum on the floor. Also there were dirty marks on the two lounging chairs which could have easily been cleaned off. The rear of the aparments is not much to look at. But who's looking anyway? The Garda station is situated behind the apartments. As is a compound for smashed up cars. Don't let this put you off.

If I return to Galway with the kids in the future I would'nt hesitate to book these aparments again.

“A lot of road noise”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Lovely apartment. Excellent service.
For country bumpkins like us there was a lot of noise from the busy street below. If you are used to this you will definitely have a great stay.

I enjoyed my stay here. The Apt was clean, and I am fussy! It could use a paint job and a new mattress! The shower was great!! The view was amazing. I felt very safe here. There is a bus stop right out the ft door you can take to Downtown Galway. There are great restaurants and entertainment all near by. Including banks, and a grocery store ! The people were very helpful and friendly. Taxi stand close too!

“Unit 18 should not be rented”
Reviewed 22 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Be careful which floor you are on - traffic on the street in front is constant - higher is quieter. The bathroom in unit 18 was filthy - mold on sink stopper, on tub grout and deep in the corners. The pain on the wall by the sink was peeling. You have to stand in the tub to turn on the shower so must be splashed with cold water until the hot water comes up. There was a loud squeal every time the water was run. The seal on the lower panes of the window in the living area was broken so the scum that formed between the panes could not be removed and obstructed the view of the bay while sitting in the living area. Only one night table in bedroom - used a chair from the kitchen table as the other night stand. No clothes rack to dry clothes. They make you pay upon check in.
