Kathleen was a wonderful host. We enjoyed chatting with her. She readily helped us when we needed input about our plan for the day. We were traveling with our 13 year old son & my 79 year old mother, both first time visitors to Ireland. Kathleen made sure there were games put out in case our son wanted entertainment and she made my mother feel right at home. We stayed for two nights and would definitely stay there again. Thanks Kathleen!

Kathleen was a wonderful host. She was great for giving local information and if there was anything she wasn't sure of, she found out and got back to me. Her house is lovely, spotless clean and the breakfast was great. Location was perfect with the bus to eyre square just outside on the main street. I would definitely stay here again.

Everything about this house is excellent. There was a particularly warm and friendly welcome. The location is close to town, yet peaceful. I will stay here again.

Kathleen was a wonderful hostess! Her home was clean, modern and convenient. We (there were 4 of us) loved the conversation and she even accommodated our breakfast choices, which was French toast. She must have been adept in the kichen because all of our full breakfasts, each different, were served in no time at all. A good choice when staying in Galway. Thanks, Katleen!
