Perfect location for a stay in Galway! Everything is less than a 10 minute walk, and the space is everything you would need. Highly recommended!

This is the first time I have used airbnb and Eugene made it hassle free and such an easy process. I took my partner for his 30th birthday to Galway and wanted to make sure we were as central as possible. The apartment was in such a perfect location it couldn't have been any closer if we tried. The check in was easy and the apartment itself was spotless. There was everything we needed even down to shower gel, shampoo & conditioner in the Irish flag colours, he had thought of everything! We have only just got back and are already planning our next trip, which we will not hesitate to book through Eugene again. If you are looking for a few days away to explore Galway than look no further as I couldn't recommended this place enough. Thank you Eugene we will be back!

Wir hatten wunderbare Tage in Galway. Die Kommunikation mit Eugene war sehr unkompliziert und Check-In/-Out verliefen problemlos. Das Apartment ist perfekt ausgestattet; die Küche ist modern und lädt zum Kochen ein, im Bad warten Seife und Shampoo und neben dem Bett liegen Ohrenstöpsel bereit, falls es nachts zu laut werden sollte. Die Lage ist ausgezeichnet, direkt neben der Fußgängerzone und zahlreichen Pubs und Restaurants - auch zum Bahnhof ist es nicht weit. Vielen lieben Dank, Eugene, für die schöne Unterkunft im charmanten Galway!

Galway est une ville étudiante et touristique. Cet appartement vous permettra de faire des visites au départ de Galway avec ou sans voiture; dans ce dernier cas, il vous suffira de prendre un tour avec guide. Vu l'étroitesse des routes, il vaut peut-être mieux. Le centre-ville le samedi soir était très animé, avec un enterrement de vie de jeune fille et une ambiance d'enfer. On s'est senti vite happés par l'ambiance, mieux que dans la meilleure des "fiestas" de leurs cousins espagnols (en 2007, une analyse génétique a confirmé la parenté celtique des deux peuples). Le pub en face de l'appartement est l'un des protagonistes de ces nuits de fête. J'avoue que les filles irlandaises s'habillent bien mais trop léger pour sortir la nuit; je me demande comment font-elles pour ne pas avoir froid pendant la nuit. Qui dit nuit dit aussi animation. J'ai pu dormir sans assistance; une journée de conduite dans les tortueuses et sinueuses routes du labyrinthe de départementales du Parc National du Connemara ayant probablement contribué, mais l'appartement avait des bouchons d'oreilles le cas où. Le bruit existe certes, mais il est acceptable. Nous n'avons pas rencontré Eugene. Il a laissé les instructions de récupération de la clé par SMS, en les suivant à la lettre, nous avons eu notre clé en secondes. L'appartement est petit. Mais nous le voulions uniquement pour bien dormir et repartir en route deux jours après. Dans l'appartement, tout l'espace est très optimisé et furieusement bien équipé. Comme on était venus à Galway pour nous balader, aucun problème. Inutile de dire que Pour garer notre voiture, nous avons opté de la garer dans l'un des parkings payants. Cher mais efficace. Prenez note cependant que certains de ces parkings n'ouvrent pas, nous avons donc pris une place dans un parking public payant à environ 15 euros en 2017. Vous ne pouvez pas vous tromper en choisissant cet appartement.

Eugene User ProfileEugene is a superhost.

Awarded "Irish Community Champion" at AirBnB Oscailte, Dublin: May 2016.
Chosen as "Host Educator" for the Airbnb Open in LA 2016.
Strong advocate for home-sharing and the AirBnB community in Ireland.

I'm an out-going, entrepreneurial type.
Always have a new idea on my mind.
I'm a qualified biomedical engineer.
I was an Irish dancer for 20 years, 8 of them professionally.
Hospitality and food/drink are passions of mine.
I love travelling, and meeting all kinds of new people.
Other interests include interior design, photography, yoga and meditation.
I have a healthy affection for red wine. ;)
I love solving problems and coming up with new ideas to develop.
I love my city. The food here is vibrant and exciting, the arts are everywhere and the atmosphere is laid back and friendly.
I know every restaurant in town, so tell me what you like and I can recommend a place.

My life motto: "You're not promised tomorrow. So make today count."

My family has been letting property for over 30 years so we like to think we know a thing or two about making people feel welcome and comfortable.

Generally, I take a hands-off approach to hosting. I'll be in touch before you arrive to ensure you know where you're going. When you arrive, you'll be able to collect the keys using instructions that I'll send you. Of course, someone is available immediately if you have any questions or troubles during your stay.

I'm an easy going traveller. I prefer a bit of spontaneity and don't like to plan things too much. A bit of personality, hospitality and humour go a long way with me.

Some of my favourite places to visit include Barcelona, Amsterdam and the Netherlands in general, Berlin, Munich, London and Paris.

India, Vietnam, Japan and South Korea are next on my list!
