Amazing stay in an amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time here on our girls weekend away. The location is perfect, just a 5 minute walk to all of the bars and restaurants. The view out onto the water is amazing and the house itself is so lovely. It's very homely and we were provided with everything we needed. We will definitely be coming back next year, Galway is an incredible place!

Perfect location and great apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was in the perfect location. It is right on the waterfront with a lovely view. It is one block away from the Spanish Arch and the exciting Latin Quarter. It is in walking distance to shopping and food stores. It has convenient access to the highway to the ferry to the Aran Islands. The apartment was clean and comfortable and well stocked with everything you could need. The beds were very comfortable. The host was very helpful in meeting us with the key and providing lots of information. I can highly recommend staying here. You will be pleased too!

Amazing views and great location

  • 5 of 5

Great location and amazing views. The house was spotless on arrival and fully stocked with cooking supplies, linen and essentials. Enough space for our group of 9 people too. Everything is a short walk away from the house but its on a quiet street with little cars so got a great rest.

The Street is a promenade to one side of the Spanish Arch.

The Spanish Arch (An Póirse Spáinneach) in Galway city, Ireland, was originally an extension of the city wall from Martin's Tower to the bank of the Corrib, as a measure to protect the city's quays, which were located in the area once known as the Fish Market (now Spanish Parade). It was constructed in 1584.

In the 18th century the Eyre family of Eyrecourt, County Galway, created an extension of the quays called The Long Walk and created the arches to allow access from the town to the new quays. The Spanish Arch is located on the banks of the River Corrib directly across from The Claddagh.

In 1755, the arches were partially destroyed by the tsunami generated by the 1755 Lisbon earthquake.

Until 2006, part of the Arch housed the Galway City Museum. At that time, the museum was moved to a new, dedicated building located just behind the Arch.
