  • A Wonderful Stay

    "We are a group of 4 ladies in our 60's visiting Ireland for the first time. We stayed at The Silver Teal for 4 nights. We were met at the apartment by Liz. She gave us a tour of the premises and shared some recommendations for places to eat and tours that she felt we would find interesting. On our first day there was a shortage of hot water. We suspected that the apartment has been empty prior to our arrival as there was plenty for the subsequent 3 days. The beds were comfortable; plenty of towels and bed linens. A large basket of food was a surprise. The kitchen is large and very well equipped. We found the entire apartment very comfortable and welcoming. Within walking distance we found The Crane Pub. In the upstairs space there was a jam session every night beginning around 10 or 10:30. This was awesome! There were recitations, singing in the Irish language and musicians from around the world who came together. It is a very small space ; very lively but when someone decided to sing the entire place fell silent.... So respectful and appreciative . The apartment is in an ideal location (we did not rent a car); the pictures are accurate and we found it to be clean. We would recommend this apartment to anybody who does not have issues with mobility. The stairs leading to the apartment might be difficult for persons who have physical challenges."

  • Excellent home with accessible, central location

    "I have been renting through VRBO for five years, averaging six stays per year. Of all my experiences, this home in reality was the closest to its description. It's exactly as it appears in the pictures and has a lot of high end touches you rarely see in Ireland. It has radiant, in-floor heating and most of the rooms have individual controls. The main setting which controls the kitchen, dining & living room is housed in a locked box on the outside of the home - so this needs to be changed by the caretaker, Mary. All of the other rooms have their own controls, so you choose your comfort. The kitchen appliances are all high end and have the manuals in a binder to assist you. I would like to note the home is accessible - it has a ramp at the entrance, two bedrooms, two baths (with roll-in showers), the kitchen & dining room all on the same floor. The rooms are gigantic and the hallways & doorways are wide. The living room (TV & fireplace), sun room and the master suite are located up three stone stairs, however. The house is also suited for families with young children - it has several board games, a toy house, blocks, etc. The stove has child lock measures for safety too. The house is also suited for groups or families with teens as the master bedroom is on the complete opposite side of the house as the two other bedrooms. And every bedroom has it's own en suite bath, so privacy is amazing. The only FYI's that should be noted are: 1) You are in Ireland on a wooded lot, so expect to see a few spiders/bugs (especially in the fall or winter as Ireland is notorious for its spiders during these seasons). 2) The microwave's timer does not work - you set it for a specific time, but it doesn't count down, it just keeps running. So don't set it and then walk away expecting the *ding.* 3) The shower temperatures are a little touchy. If you find the water isn't hot enough, I recommend shutting it off, turning the temperature knob to a hotter setting & then turn it back on. For some reason it wouldn't get hotter once it was on. 4) It is a self-catering house, and when I was there it didn't have some things you would think may be there - like black pepper & sugar. Just be prepared to look around the kitchen before you head to the store. 5) The fireplace doesn't emit a lot of heat, I think the chimney is a little too large and the heat escapes up it. So don't invest in a lot of firewood or peat logs unless you just want the ambiance. Overall: Amazing"

  • Great house with lots of space and beautiful views!

    "We had a very memorable holiday in this very spaciousness bright home. We had ten family members so had plenty of room with 5 nice bedrooms. We had every facility we needed with a nice big kitchen, utility room and plenty of sitting areas. We had all travelled far but was certainly worth it to enjoy the beautiful village of Roundstone and surrounding areas. We enjoyed delicious food at Vaughans and O'Dowds and lots of fun at Kings pub. Made some new friends here who were so friendly and showed us some of the local sights. Will definitely be back and would highly recommend this house!"

  • Perfect!

    "Many thanks Liz! We loved our Galway City stay. We were here for 4 days, and your apartment is perfectly located. We were able to walk everywhere and enjoy all the sights. The attention to detail (flowers, welcome basket) and your recommendations for the local markets and sites were very appreciated. Thank you so much .... Perhaps we'll be lucky enough to return one day. :) Val and Ben"
