Ethos

Herons Rest fresh seasonal berries

Our philosophy at The Herons Rest is to ensure our guests enjoy the best of Galway and it’s locale.

We enjoy providing a home from home experience and strive to offer you a personalised locals insight service. Our continental gourmet breakfasts, provisioned from local and organic produce give you a taste of the best of the west. In each stylish double sea view bedroom lots of thoughtful touches enhance your comfort and panoramic views of the bay give a feeling of idyllic hideaway whilst still located in the city centre.

We love to share up-to the minute advice with you on the best restaurant recommendations and help you with your reservations. Galway is the perfect base for day tripping and we offer a number of tours which can be booked directly on our website in advance of your arrival. If you are driving we would be happy to help you with personalised route planning to ensure you can avoid the tourist traps and find unspoilt secret spots. Why not let us pack a gourmet picnic for you? and let us recommend our favorite places to stop.

Breakfast is a convivial continental style feast, offering the best of local produce. It is served at our communal breakfast table between 8- 10am and may also be received in your room. Irish farmhouse cheeses, natural juices and organic local yogurts accompany an extensive continental spread of homemade muesli, poached fruit, local cured organic salmon, select cured meats, homemade jams and freshly baked muffins and scones. We are happy to accommodate your specific dietary requirements upon request.

At the Herons Rest WE MAY BE SMALL BUT WE ARE PASSIONATE about hospitality and look forward to extending a warm welcome to you.
