I stayed at the Atlantic View Guesthouse with several members of my family for 3 nights. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They made sure that we had everything we needed and more. The rooms were comfortable, the showers hot (which was so nice after a cold and rainy Galway day), and breakfast was made to order. The location was an easy 10-15 minute walk to downtown Galway, or a quick taxi ride. There were even great shops, restaurants and pubs right down the street in Salthill. I really couldn't have asked for a better spot.
On a separate, but important note, I left my passport in the room safe when I traveled to Dublin. The owners of the Atlantic View were incredible. The immediately got it on a bus and sent it to me. I had it in my hand in 3.5 hours! They truly went above and beyond to help me. People say the Irish are friendly and helpful, but these people blew my expectations out of the water!More
