Anne and John were wonderful hosts and very accommodating. I was travelling with my father, and we made reservations only a day in advance for a five-night stay. Our first night was in a room that wasn't ensuite, but Anne moved us to an ensuite room for the remainder of our stay. Both rooms were quiet and very clean. We enjoyed breakfast in the mornings, and the ample parking was very handy. It was easy to get into and out of the city from here.
Salthill is a beautiful walk along the water from Galway, but if you're not up for exercise, then there is a bus that drops close by. Definitely take the time to walk the promenade, however. And stop into O'Connor's for a pint.
