About Cathy Morgan, Your Time in Ireland SR
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 Cathy Morgan, Your Time in Ireland SR chose Salthill
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.

Galway's Secret Gem
This was our second visit to Galway in the past 7 yrs in which we stayed at the Coach House both times. We loved it 7 years ago and knew we had to come back. This time we brought my parents with us. We had 6 adults total and were very comfortable. Liz as always is the perfect hostess. The location to Galway Centre is an easy walk. My parents who are in their 70's loved the convenience to everything. You don't need a car to get around. Looking forward to our next visit to Ireland in which we will again stay at the Coach House. Thank You Liz for everything.

Our Galway leg of our Great Ireland Adventure
My husband and I decided to take our daughter, our two sons and two daughter in laws on a family trip. We went through many locations, but landed on Ireland. We were not disappointed! Ireland is even more beautiful than I realized and our time in Galway at the Coach house was spectacular! Liz greeted us and showed us all the features the Coach house has to offer. It was so much nicer than staying in hotels, we were able to gather around the table for meals and conversation at the beginning and end of our days. We loved the location, fabulous Quay! So much to see from the Spanish arches to the most photographed street in Galway, so close to everything. We ventured to the Connemara National Park, extremely beautiful, we went to Sligo and Donegal, the Burren, so much to do!! We even went to a sheep farm and watched the Border collies herd. This is a great location for all sorts of adventures. We would highly recommend the Coach house. The folks, Liz, especially was so gracious and helpful. One of us forgot our wallet, it was found and mailed to the states, above and beyond is what we have here. Thank you so much for enhancing our trip with the Irish charm! The Minnettes from Indiana, Oregon, and Colorado!
The Best Place to Stay in Galway!
My partner and I stayed at Cathy's fantastic townhouse for 4 nights. The location is absolutely perfect...on a quiet beautifully charming street of townhomes but less than a 5 minute walk to all the best restaurants, shops, and lively nightlife of Galway. Cathy is a perfectly charming host. She met us promptly, welcomed us warmly with a gift basket and her cheery disposition and smile. The Coach House is two stories and fully equipped with dishwasher, washer/dryer, TV, WiFi, and fireplace. It's immaculately clean, with all amenities we needed and we felt comfortable and cozy. I highly recommend staying here and we will surely be back sooner rather than later!
Grand Galway Girls' Get-Away!
I'd like to thank Cathy and Liz for a truly wonderful stay at the Coach House, all of the extra touches were appreciated. We traveled to Ireland for a girls' trip to celebrate a special birthday, and it was most memorable! Liz was very gracious in walking us through directions, parking, tips on the house and terrific recommendations for restaurants and night spots. We loved parking the car and walking to dinner, the pubs and Galway Bay to boot! Slainte!!
Stylish & smart hidden haven - for doing Galway in perfection...
