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...

Cathy Morgan, Your Time in Ireland SR purchased this apartment in 2009

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;

- many interesting walks through town and surrounding places;

- abundance of excellent Restaurants from the end of Sea Road - just 2 mins away!

- fabulous walks to Salthill Village and along seaside promenades;

- Abundance of wonderful trips & tours to book into;

- suberb Golf courses a short drive away: Galway Golf Links 5 mins; Barna GC 10 mins; Galway Bay 20 mins; Athenry Parkland 30mins; Ballinahinch 1 hour, etc.

Lovely Property!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I could not have picked a better place to stay on our weekend trip to Galway. Cathy Morgan made us feel so at home from the moment we arrived at the property. Stephen who runs the building greeted us as we arrived and made sure we checked into the property without any issues. All of the beds were made perfectly and the apartment was filled with everything we needed, including a fridge full of groceries! The walk into the city centre was so quick and so easy! The location is beyond superb! I'm so happy we chose to stay here and I can't wait to make another trip back! Thank you for opening up your home to us!

Great Location and Great Host

  • 5 of 5

Cathy was there to greet us and show us around - she provided us with excellent ideas for our stay in Galway! The apartment was extremely well equipped and centrally located which allowed us to walk everywhere to explore this beautiful city. Her thoughtfulness for Mother's Day was greatly appreciated and we would highly recommend this lovely apartment!!!

Best Home Away experience ever. The property is exceptional. Next time in Galway we will stay there

  • 5 of 5

Cathy and her staff welcomed us in person. It was a very warm reception. The welcome basket and fridge were stocked with all the essentials. The home is warm, comfortable and well appointed. All appliances are provided for comfort. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms gave us the comfort needed. The home is in an upscale neighborhood and we felt very safe at all times. Restaurants and supermarket are near by. It is across the street from a beautiful bird sanctuary and walking distance to the ocean. Even though we had many things to do and see in Galway we felt comfortable staying in a couple times. We have experienced Home Away rentals a few times, this was by far one of the best. Next time we are in Galway we will definitely stay there. The entire home was in exceptional shape, no need to contact Cathy for any problems. Our stay in Galway was exceptional and having such a great home every night made it so much better. Thank you Cathy for welcoming us and for your graciousness. We hope to see you soon. Michael, Pauline, Ed and Nicol.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

In April we visited Galway where our son was studying @ NUI for the semester. The Silver Teal apartment was perfect for our needs! We loved it! The apartment was so comfortable, spacious and clean. Exactly what we needed for our family of 4. We were able to walk to all the great pubs and other attractions. Cathy greeted us upon our arrival and provided a wonderful welcome basket of goodies (fruit, cereal, scones and breakfast meat/eggs in frig). I would highly recommend booking with Silver Teal. Great vacation!!! Snow Family

A Winter Week in Galway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (young adult children and parents) enjoyed a tremendous week of vacation between Christmas and New Years in Galway and the surrounding area. The Silver Teal apartment was a perfect base for our adventures. We were warmly greeted by Liz and the welcome basket of groceries was a lovely way to start our week. We did a mixture of eating in and out, and the kitchen facilities were more than adequate for our needs. The washer and dryer were much appreciated as we got both wet and muddy in our explorations. The apartment is homey and very comfortable. There are books, puzzles, and information about area sites. Many good restaurants are close by and we found it easy to find good live music at nearby pubs in the evenings. It was a cold week while we were there, and the apartment was occasionally chilly (particularly the bathrooms at night). But abundant blankets and wall heaters were available, as well as a fireplace in the living room, so it was manageable. The apartment is an easy walk to the city center and all that Galway has to offer. (We loved the raspberry scones at Griffins.) An excellent grocery store is a short walk away. We only used the car for more distant destinations. With the bus tours available for beautiful Connemara, the stunning Cliffs of Moher, etc., I think we could have gotten along fine without one. If you like a challenging hike/climb, consider the Croagh Patrick, about an hour's drive from Galway. On a clear day the views are amazing, though you'll want to bring sturdy shoes and warm clothing, as well as water and a sandwich, especially if climbing in winter. The wind was cold and powerful! (FYI, If you are considering traveling during the week following Christmas, quite a few restaurants, shops and attractions are closed. There is still plenty to do and see, however.)

Great location, safe and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in a rainstorm, not unusual for Galway in March, and the welcome we received made us feel so good! Liz gave us a tour of all of the units, and each is very nice. Three of us shared Silver Teal and we were extremely comfortable. Two large bedrooms, large bathrooms and a huge kitchen including a washer and dryer, made the stay especially convenient. (I try to be a light packer, and found it helpful to do laundry mid-week.) The unit is close to everything, and we felt like "locals" after a week. With all of the wonderful restaurants and historic sites in Galway, we were out all day every day wandering around town and enjoying the ambiance. We found a good taxi tour driver through the Irish Tourism office so we were able to take two tours of Cliffs of Moher and Connemara (we did not rent a car). It was great to come home every night to our "home" in Galway. They have units for almost any size group. Thanks again, Liz and the Galway crew!
