This is a very well-located house for access to NUIG or to town, especially nice for the festivals. It's right across the road from NUIG and it's about a twenty minute walk into town. There's also a bus stop just a two minute walk away. The house has 1 BR on the ground floor, three bedrooms on the second floor, and an attic room. It's spacious with a big open kitchen and dining room looking out on the garden. Very nice for a big dinner with friends. There's also room for parking a car in front if you have a car or hire one during your stay. You can also head out to Connemara or over the get out of the city and on to the main road to explore the rest of the country.
Located just across the street from the University, the house is close enough to the middle of town for convenience, but far enough for a quiet retreat. Plus, it's just a short walk to the river or a couple nice little restaurants. The house is big enough for a large family (plus a few friends, if you like) and has been nicely updated -- modern appliances, attractive beds and furniture, soothing colors. Our family loved it, and we'll be staying there next time we're in Galway. Highly recommended!
