About the neighbourhood
The following is a recent review by lonely planet
'Arty, bohemian Galway (Gaillimh) is one of Ireland's most engaging cities. Brightly painted pubs heave with live music, while restaurants and cafes offer front-row seats for observing buskers and street theatre. Remnants of the medieval town walls lie between shops selling handcrafted Claddagh rings, books and musical instruments, bridges arch over the salmon-stuffed River Corrib, and a long promenade leads to the seaside suburb of Salthill, on Galway Bay, the source of the area's famous oysters.'
The house is situated close to the city center and within a five minute walk of my favorite restaurant and pub (Kai restaurant and the Crane bar). Lots of others within minutes of the house.
