On arrival we were shown to a lovely room overlooking the water. I needed to park in the street and later that afternoon we met Sorcha, who provided not only her parking pass for the street but a marvellous welcome to the Heron's Rest. The central location made this ideal for walking and exploring the town. The breakfast's were simply fabulous, home made bread, the dish of your choice all freshly prepared in front of your very eyes. Any questions were always attended to and lots of advice freely given. The other guests at the time were wonderful company and our days started with a resume of what had gone before, all in a warm friendly atmosphere. When we return to Galway we will be choosing the Heron's Rest as our preferred accomodation.
