We have stayed at Arus Grattan some dozen times over the past few years. The accommodations are superb: spacious modern rooms, very comfortable furnishings, great views and excellent service. The location is ideal as well: Galway Bay is across the street, it's a 15 minute walk into Galway city, and the center of Salthill (lively pubs, restaurants, shops and services)... More

Stayed here for 3nights as last minute break before school started. Good location,easy to find and close to all amenities. The young man that showed us around was very welcoming. While the apartment had all we needed, for the price range I would expect a little more. The bed sheets were old and stained in some cases and the towels... More

My husband and I enjoyed our 8 day stay this month. The brightness and cleanliness of the apartment was outstanding. The apartment was also quiet which made sleeping easier. The owner, Sean, was a delight. The apartment is located for easy walk to stores and restaurants both in Salthill and Galway. We would definitely return.

Location was great, a 10 minute walk from downtown, lots of bars, restaurants, etc. A short walk to the water for a nice stroll when the sun came out. Nice full kitchen, a living room, and 3 bedrooms for our family of 6 to stay in. Our only real issue was this wasn't a serviced apt, so if you had... More
