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!
