Relax in an idyllic city centre waterside haven

What our guests recently said:

We have been going to Galway for years, this is by far our favourite , and has become our number one place to stay. Our sociable personable intuitive host so anticipated our needs, ‘would we like her to book dinner etc’ .’From the personal service to the beautifully cosy and comfortable room, to the meticulously maintained home and amazing breakfast, this was a feast for all the senses’. Trip Advisor November 6 2016.

‘Right on the “Long Walk” which is in at least half of the water pictures you see of Galway. Excellent view and a 4 minute stroll to the center of the Latin Quarter. The Herons Rest is quaint and comfortable. But the best part for me was my hostess, Sorcha. So full of sunshine’.Trip Advisor October 2016.

‘This was our third time staying at the Heron’s Rest and upon checking out we immediately started discussing when we will return for our fourth visit. Even in December, the view from the room is spectacular filled with swans, cormorants, and the heron, along with the ever-changing, epic tides. Loved the place, the views over the bay and the breakfasts where great’. Trip Advisor October 2016.

‘If I made a list of my favourite home away from home comforts, The Heron’s Rest would cater to just about every one’. Yelp September 2015.

‘The entire inn was charming and quaint. Our hosts were very accommodating and sincere in their welcome and hospitality. Our gourmet breakfast was delicious! I would stay here again in a heartbeat!’. Trip Advisor October 8 2014.

‘The four of us were impressed by the exceptional quality of the lodging – modern, spotless, comfortable. The breakfast with a number of cooked options was outstanding. And the location is terrific: 2 minutes walk to the pedestrian part of town’. Trip Advisor 17 May 2012.

‘This is like being the Guest at an old friends home beside the sea. Right in the middle of Galway with all it’s wonderful restaurants and bars outside your door. The breakfast was simply amazing!’. Trip Advisor May 1 2012.
