About Cathy Morgan, Your Time in Ireland SR

Dear Guests, myself and my family returned to Ireland in recent years having lived overseas ourselves for many years. We enjoyed many worldwide trips & travels over those years, and experienced firsthand the pro’s & con’s of hotels versus short stay apartments. Hotels can be great, but! we realised, how much we better enjoyed ourselves when we felt thoroughly ‘At Home’ on these travels. Putting all of this into good practice in our beautiful Galway & Dublin short-rental options, we are extremely conscious of always offering this pleasure to the weary traveller – a seriously welcoming home-from-home environment - for 3 nights only or 3+ leisurely weeks! Working hard on the things that count – including fresh, luxurious bed linens & duvets and beds fully made up, fridge freshly stocked with Useful Food Items, and our useful local guides - you can so quickly settle in and get going with the many wonderful activities, explorations and small adventures awaiting you on a visit to Ireland, including lively engagement with everyone you meet on your tips and tours...

Why Cathy Morgan, Your Time in Ireland SR chose Galway

Our deluxe short stay options are just 2 to 3 minutes away from the liveliest quarters of Town – and yet so peaceful and quiet for a great night’s sleep. The wider city is alive with visitors, restaurants, cafe-bars and many very unique & special traditional Irish pubs and live music - you will have made an excellent choice by staying with us on The Crescent.

Galway is a great town! - the capital city of Connacht is a bustling and superbly lively university city that sits at the end of Lough Corrib - Lake & River - as it wends its way to the Atlantic Ocean. Long a wonderful and busy merchant town with a serious maritime tradition and backdrop, Galway’s trading history can be seen in town canals, water breaks & salmon weirs, pier heads, and sea-side promenades and walkways, plus rich ancient woodlands that survive in precious pockets around the town. Our location on The Crescent is part of this older world of Galway going back to the early 1830’s - when trains ran to Clifden, and a tramline ran from Eyre Square via The Crescent and out to the seaside promenades of Salthill. Our apartments are located in an elegant tall period house there of some 180 years standing, and we do everything we can to maintain the ambience of this lovely old period house accompanied by many beautiful and contemporary features of today.

What makes this apartment unique

- Beautiful environment to settle into quickly, beds all freshly made up; fridge stocked and generous Welcome Basket of groceries.

- excellent local shops & supermarket just 2 mins away;

- excellent shopping in lively town centre just 5 minutes away;

Victorian Townhouse Apt on The Crescent: perfect for walking everywhere in town!
average rating of 4.7826085 based on 23 reviews

Perfect location. Very responsive and helpful owner.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location. Easy walking to Salthill Promenade, the Latin Quarter, and Eyre Square. A full grocery store was around the corner, although the thoughtful welcome basket and stocked refrigerator meant we didn't need to immediately run for groceries. Loved being able to do laundry while we stayed. The layout is perfect with the 2 bedrooms nicely separated, providing privacy. Everything we needed was there. Would definitely stay again. The only real challenge was parking. We had a compact SUV, with side mirrors that couldn't be pulled in once the engine was started. There were only INCHES to spare on either side of the driveway. Still can't believe we didn't scrape up the car on the side of the buildings!

Nice place for a family stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed staying at the Silver Teal property. The one thing I would recommend to improve the experience would be more timely check in instructions. Galway was the last place we visited in Ireland, so we left the USA over a week before our arrival. It would have been nice to have lock box info before we left, since WiFi was spotty during our travels. (Maybe we should have arranged for international cell coverage.) The townhouse was clean and comfortable. The complimentary food basket was so appreciated. We got there a bit late after taking the train from Dublin. There was plenty of food for a light dinner and breakfast the first morning! It was an easy walk to all the sights and shopping in Galway. A great location.

My family had such a great stay at the Crescent! Cathy made it feel like a home and provided us with just the right amount of food to cook our own breakfasts before we ventured out each day. There is also a grocery store less than a 5 minute walk from the flat that has anything else you may want during your stay. The flat is located in the perfect area, very quiet and is only about a 10 minute walk or less to the heart of the Latin district where there are numerous pubs, restaurants, and stores. We walked to this area every night for dinner and to people watch. Unless you’re exploring beyond the city you don’t need a car. The flat itself is well appointed with everything you need as well. Comfortable living room, beds, and also a washer and dryer which was great. Cathy was a great host and made checking in so easy and great suggestions of things to do. I would absolutely stay here again and will tell anyone visiting Galway to stay here.
