“The best part of Galway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We arrived in Galway near dark and didn't have a place to stay. We almost stayed at a sketchy B&B but at the last minute got ahold of Liskea Houses' number. We weren't sure how to get there so they went out of their way to collect us! It is located in a perfect spot: away from the hustle and bustle, close to the sea; but just a 3-5 minute walk from the Spanish Arch and Eyre Square. The room was very nice and comfy. Kathleen is a caring hostess and always saw to our every need; she was very helpful in helping us book tours, thinking of things to do, etc. I loved the family atmosphere and for me it was the best part of being in Galway. I strongly recommend this B&B!!

I had wanted to stay in the Salthill area of Galway, but when we arrived, we had difficulty finding an empty room. It was close to the weekend and in the middle of a heatwave in May 2012 - so everyone was at the beach. No one was home. Kathleen, the homeowner, was a lifesaver (After a neighbor called around to ask about vacancies.)

Ruby, her dog was a sweetheart. As with many of the people we met in Ireland, Kathleen was very helpful in offering directions and suggestions while in the Galway area. I really enjoyed talking to her about various subjects while I finished my breakfast one morning.

Salthill is southeast of Galway so we were able to leave our car and walk everywhere.
Just remember that most rooms do not have air conditioning. The nights are a bit cooler, esp. near the water, but sleeping with the window open is about your only option.
