Patricia and Jim were great hosts, and I had a great time visiting with them. Their home was clean and very close to the downtown Galway nightlife. It was very much like staying with friends. They were very helpful on must visit locations in the Galway area. Because I am 6' 4" I was concerned about the accomodations when I made my reservation, but realized I would have no difficulties once I arrived. If you choose The Sparrows you will not be disappointed.
