Property description

The Coach House is perfect for a stay in Galway City! - sleeping 2, 4 or 6 to 8+ guests in superb fresh comfort, here is an exclusive, stylish and private Town Residence where you are guaranteed a wonderful vacation home when touring Galway City and the West of Ireland. Located in the heart of Galway City on The Crescent, you are 2 to 3 minutes walk from much fabulous fun and the lively social activities of Town; yet you are away from night time noise and revelry on the busy town streets - the Coach House is wonderful for a great night's sleep.
The House is beautiful for its simple cool interiors, warmth & privacy, fully kitted out with everything you could need for your time in Ireland, (including 3 sets of hair dryers & hair styling equipment) and beds fully made up prior to your arrival with our luxurious fresh bed linens & duvets, a plentiful supply of large fresh towels and starter toiletries - everything perfect and ready to go for your arrival and stay. Private parking is available too, just outside from the house - in our car park at the back of the Main House.

The Coach House is located just around the corner from Sea Road, providing you excellent & easy proximity to town - it is a mere 2-minute stroll to superb restaurants, an array of traditional Irish pubs with live music, and great social swirl of people and events all around you. You will have made an excellent decision by choosing to stay here - the House is our superb Architect-designed hidden gem, offering 3 double bedrooms upstairs - all with a California King bed or Twin Beds (as guided by you); plus 2 further double-size sofa beds and 2 further single-size foldaway beds to use when these are required for a larger group. With its contemporary light filled-interiors, unique & stylish polished granite & porcelain tiled floors in all rooms, and under-floor heating throughout, you will immediately enjoy a sense of relaxation and calm. Fittings & fixtures are top quality, and the Master Bedroom is en-suite with slipper bathtub to relax into with shower overhead - gorgeous! With a further Main Bathroom upstairs, a guest-toilet and extra WC & floor-shower downstairs, a group of 6 to 8 persons is superbly accommodated for a fabulous vacation time in Galway City.
Downstairs is the fully fitted & stylish Kitchen/Dining Room inviting you to sit back and enjoy catching up over the Rosewood dining table (seats 8+) and dine a-while from the fully equipped Kitchen with its Neff appliances, full dinner & daily delph services, and lots of glassware, cutlery, silver & servers we've provided for your stay.
Across the hall is a warm and elegant Sitting Room with two 3-seater sofas and easy chairs, fully working fireplace, flatscreen TV, full WiFi broadband & satellite/cable services, a library of excellent books, chess & board games, dvd/cd's, and iPod/iPhone docking/recharging stations - a wonderful space to relax in at the end of a busy day out & about.

Under-floor heating throughout the house - with individual room controllers allows you always control the level of heat needed, especially if the weather is inclement outside. A further Utility Room opens off the Kitchen with full-size Washing Machine, separate Dryer, Ironing Area, and stock of useful utility items.

Local Amenities
There is a superb large Super Valu supermarket located at the Fr Griffin Road end of The Crescent; a most useful petrol/gas station at the other end of The Crescent, and a delightful church and gourmet shop just at the end of Sea Road. At this point, you are already at the Restaurants & traditional Irish pubs quarters - you are almost spoiled for choice! Browsing & shopping in town is a lovely treat, plus wonderful day trips to Connemara & the Burren, and by evening time join the sociable world of Sea Road/William Street West and the two Dominick Streets, and then to Quay Street & the Latin Quarter - a mere stroll over Wolfe Tone Bridge.

Galway is busy and buzzing with its people, university population, many visitors, shops, cafes, festivals, sociable activities & events, and a wonderful artistic, theatre and music-making tradition. There are beautiful small strolls along the pretty town canals, many cool town churches to discover and pop into for a peaceful interlude, in particular to look over Galway's medieval history in the collegiate church of St Nicholas's where there are many medieval artefacts and inscriptions on the flagstones to decipher and absorb.
Galway is the origin of the beautiful Claddagh Ring, and there are a variety of competing stories on its design-origin to enjoy as you visit key jewellery stores around town.
And last but not least are fabulous walks, runs or cycles to Salthill & Blackrock, where there is 8 kilometres of promenades & shoreline walks to enjoy throughout the day - joining thousands of Galwegians also catching up on their daily constitutional, or a leisurely swim in Galway Bay on a warm summer's day!
All of this is just 5+ minutes from the Coach House on The Crescent, and these things are all yours to absorb and enjoy in this lovely, stylish small Residence, everything adding hope to a '10-star' experience for your time in Ireland. The Coach House is delightfully quiet and private - being the only residential unit on this private laneway. With private parking for guests located just across in our car park at the Main House.

And for a larger guest-party, we can also accommodate you across in the Main House:

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Dear Guests, myself and my family returned to Ireland in recent years having lived overseas for many years. We enjoyed many worldwide trips & travels over those years, and experienced firsthand the pro’s & con’s of hotels versus short stay apartments. Hotels can be great, but! we realised, how much we better enjoyed ourselves when we felt thoroughly ‘At Home’ on these travels. Putting all of this into good practice in our beautiful Galway & Dublin short-rental options, we are extremely conscious of always offering this pleasure to the weary traveller – a seriously welcoming home-from-home environment - for 3 nights only or 3+ leisurely weeks! Working hard on the things that count – including fresh, luxurious bed linens & duvets and beds fully made up, fridge freshly stocked with Useful Food Items, and our useful local guides - you can so quickly settle in and get going with the many wonderful activities, explorations and small adventures awaiting you on a visit to Ireland, including lively engagement with everyone you meet on your tips and tours...

Why the Owner Chose Galway, Ireland:
Our deluxe short stay options are just 2 to 3 minutes away from the liveliest quarters of Town – and yet so peaceful and quiet for a great night’s sleep. The wider city is alive with visitors, restaurants, cafe-bars and many very unique & special traditional Irish pubs and live music - you will have made an excellent choice by staying with us on The Crescent. Galway is a great town! - the capital city of Connacht is a bustling and superbly lively university city that sits at the end of Lough Corrib - Lake & River - as it wends its way to the Atlantic Ocean. Long a wonderful and busy merchant town with a serious maritime tradition and backdrop, Galway’s trading history can be seen in town canals, water breaks & salmon weirs, pier heads, and sea-side promenades and walkways, plus rich ancient woodlands that survive in precious pockets around the town. Our location on The Crescent is part of this older world of Galway going back to the early 1830’s - when trains ran to Clifden, and a tramline ran from Eyre Square via The Crescent and out to the seaside promenades of Salthill. Our apartments are located in an elegant tall period house there of some 180 years standing, and we do everything we can to maintain the ambience of this lovely old period house accompanied by many beautiful and contemporary features of today.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
- Beautiful environment to settle into quickly, beds all freshly made up; fridge stocked and generous Welcome Basket of groceries. - excellent local shops & supermarket just 2 mins away; - excellent shopping in lively town centre just 5 minutes away; - many interesting walks through town and surrounding places; - abundance of excellent Restaurants from the end of Sea Road - just 2 mins away! - abundance of warm & inviting Irish pubs & live music from the end of Sea Road through to the two Dominick Streets, Quay Street and surrounding Latin Quarter - all just 2 to 3 minutes away! - fabulous walks to Salthill Village and along seaside promenades; - Abundance of wonderful trips & tours to book into; - suberb Golf courses a short drive away: Galway Golf Links 5 mins; Barna GC 10 mins; Galway Bay 20 mins; Athenry Parkland 30mins; Ballinahinch 1 hour, etc.
