We had a wonderful stay in the penthouse apartment on the top floor looking out over the bay. Excellent facilities and friendly, helpful attention and advice from our host Sean Treacy. I can recommend it wholeheartedly.

“Spotless, comfortable apartment”
Reviewed 15 December 2011 for a stay in September 2011

Our host Sean was very efficient with the booking & communication and very friendly/helpful when we arrived & during our stay. There is a detailed notebook of information for guest use and he also shared some ideas about where to eat during our short stay. The apartment location is about a 10 minute walk from the center of Galway village. There are groceries, pubs and restaurants within a 2-5 minute walk too. We would definitely stay at this property again if we make it back to Galway.

“Wish I had found this sooner!”
Reviewed 16 October 2011 for a stay in October 2011

person found this review helpful

I stayed here recently for the Galway Bay half marathon (October 2011) – and had a fantastic week with family (5 adults). The location could not have been more perfect, the apartment was spotless and provided everything you could need to cook, do laundry, etc ( a huge savings over having to eat every meal out)
There is a spectacular view from the living room, kitchen and huge balcony directly overlooking the bay. (Perfect for watching the sun go down on Galway Bay!). The price was extremely reasonable and the owner could not have been more accommodating. Anything extra we needed, from a bed to extra parking spaces, was provided free. Parking is inside a secured locked parking area, which is comforting, and access to the apartment building is also locked. Sean was a great host and goes out of his way to provide anything you would need. He lives across the road so is always accessible. There is free wifi an iron, and hairdryer.
The apartment is perfectly situated directly on the "prom" (a 3 mile section of boardwalk) great for running, or walking. It is only a 10 minute walk from the Latin Quarter and the center of town. I grew up not far from here and only regret not having found this place sooner. I return to Galway almost yearly and this is absolutely the best place hands down I have stayed in over 20 years, including hotels. I will definitely be returning!

“Spacious, comfortable and secure apartment in great location”
Reviewed 16 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We spend a week in Galway in September to participate in the triathlon. Owner Sean Treacy was accomodating and helpful from day one. He gave us great information RE history and tourist information. The apartment's location is a mere 10 min to shopping/tourist area and what a lovely walk next to the promenade. The interior was spacious,clean and very well equiped. 24 hour free internet was a bonus. The secure under cover parking kept our big rental van safe. We can recommend Grattan house for a great holiday stay and especially for the next 70.3 triathlon. The bike to run transition was less than 400m from the apartment.

“Excellent base for visting Galway and Clare”
Reviewed 29 July 2011 for a stay in April 2011

We had a sea front apartment that was roomy, clean and well appointed. Both bedrooms were ensuite - but there was no bath. Kitchen was excellent and the views from the balcony overlooked Galway Bay.

The apartment also included secure parking and free wireless internet access. The owner was extremely helpful and offered lots of tips for our holiday.

The location in Salthhill is close to shops, cafes and a wonderful Italian restaurant.
