“Spacious, comfortable and secure apartment in great location”
Reviewed September 15, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We spend a week in Galway in September to participate in the triathlon. Owner Sean Treacy was accomodating and helpful from day one. He gave us great information RE history and tourist information. The apartment's location is a mere 10 min to shopping/tourist area and what a lovely walk next to the promenade. The interior was spacious,clean and very well equiped. 24 hour free internet was a bonus. The secure under cover parking kept our big rental van safe. We can recommend Grattan house for a great holiday stay and especially for the next 70.3 triathlon. The bike to run transition was less than 400m from the apartment.

“Excellent base for visting Galway and Clare”
Reviewed July 29, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

We had a sea front apartment that was roomy, clean and well appointed. Both bedrooms were ensuite - but there was no bath. Kitchen was excellent and the views from the balcony overlooked Galway Bay.

The apartment also included secure parking and free wireless internet access. The owner was extremely helpful and offered lots of tips for our holiday.

The location in Salthhill is close to shops, cafes and a wonderful Italian restaurant.

“Spotless family accomodation. Caring owner”

We decided to move at the last minute from an absolutely horrible flat to Grattan House which is owned by Sean Tracy. He was kind enough to meet us at 21.30 and book us into his accommodation. We were thrilled. It was clean,comfortable and everything we wanted our accommodation to be. He went out of his way to make us feel comfortable after our bad experience with another dodgy rental. I recommend his apartments and guarantee anybody who stays there that you will have a great time in Galway.

“Exceptional apartment in terrific location”

Sean provided outstanding service and excellent Irish hospitality. The two bedroom two bathroom unit provided more than enough room for three people. The view of Galway Bay and the promenade was an added bonus. The location was only a short walk to the shops of Galway City. Bring your laptop since Wi-Fi is furnished. I would highly recommend Grattan House Holiday Apartments and plan to return with my family.
