    A gorgeous retreat in Galway

    What an absolute treasure our host was. We had the most gorgeous loft bedroom and wished we could have stayed longer!!! Very well appointed, spotless and super comfortable. Delicious breakfast - we felt spoilt. Great value and perfect for exploring Galway, particularly if you have a car. Would love to return and highly recommend to all!
