The stone barn was special!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very special stay in Galway. The stone barn was wonderful as our home base. Peggy and Tony are a delightful couple who's hard work is evident in their very special place. They couldn't do enough for us. The country side is terrific yet fairly close to town. So we got to enjoy both busy Galway and a lovely setting to come home to. We surely hope to return some day. Well done !

A charming, conveniently located Irish stone apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful rental. The stone apartment is beautiful, very original and very clean. The kitchen is updated and well stocked. The bathrooms are modern and clean. The owner, Peggy, met us when we arrived to show us around and explain things. She was very kind and accommodating even though we arrived MUCH later than planned, late at night. The master bed was very comfortable which was very important to me, a light sleeper. It was also a queen size as described even though it appeared smaller in the photos, at least to me. Cracking the bedroom window open at night to feel the delicious cool to cold Irish breezes and to hear the gentle wake up calls of the birds in the garden made the experience a delight. Our 12 year old greatly appreciated the two outside cats and my oldest daughter -the wifi in the living room. We were 10 minutes away from Galway City Center which made getting about super easy. The place was quiet which we loved as well. I will definitely recommend The Stone Apartment to my traveling friends!
