My family and I spent over a week in the conveniently located Granary suites over Christmas. Our host Irene was so welcoming and easy to contact. The apartment had everything we needed with wonderful views over the river and out to Galway bay. Many lovely restaurants, cafes and bars in the area. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking a convenient base in Galway city
We can wholeheartedly endorse previous comments about the warm welcome given to us by Gerald initially and then Irene. They typified the friendly and helpful attitude we received everywhere we went. The apartment is ideally located and I never got tired of the views down the river and across the bay. Reading whilst sat in those bay windows was a holiday in itself. We crammed a lot into our week but feel we only scratched the surface. I have been wanting to come to Galway for a long time and my only disappointment is that we didn't come sooner. We deliberately coincided the visit with the arts festival and managed to see 2 plays and a music evening in addition to several lively pubs which also had live music. We also enjoyed day trips to Arran, Connemara and the Cliffs of Moher all of which I would strongly recommend. We will be back again to visit as soon as we can.
A very comfortable apartment, Irene the owner was very friendly. The views over the river out towards the sea are fabulous. Very quiet despite the fact that you are located so centrally for all the shops bars and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.
From even before our visit we were met with prompt and clear communication. We met Irene on arrival and the place was amazing. So lovely and clean with such a warm welcome. We felt that we were visiting the house of a friend. So well equipped... even a pen and shopping pad. Those little things that you forget to pack. I shall never forget the views and often found myself just stopped mid task as I gazed out into the mouth of the river as it passes to Galway bay. Amazingly peaceful. It really is central with parking! There is something about that building. An aura of peace and relaxation. We took in so many things. Chowder in Clifden at O'malleys. Walk along the promenade with ice cream at salthill. Live music at taafes on shop street (5.30 performance is great opportunity for children to experience the music and atmosphere) aquarium was a real experience the staff make you feel so welcome. Galway Crystal factory shop is stunning and also great for gifts. Meals out at the kings head bistro and Munroe's. A fantastic holiday from a beautifully looked after base. Thankyou Irene from all three of us.
This was our first experience of Galway and it certainly won't be our last. The city itself is not only amazing in its own right but it's also a great base to see other beautiful parts of Ireland. Staying at the Furbo suite made the experience all the more enjoyable and we're already looking forward to going back. The apartments are very centrally located and offer stunning river and sea views. The main city sights are a mere 5 minute walk away. Our host Irene is lovliest woman, she was so welcoming with great tips on where to visit and nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely recommend staying here. Thanks Irene we look forward to our next trip !!
