I've stayed at Grattan House some dozen times over the past few years. The accommodations are superb: spacious modern rooms, very comfortable furnishings, great views and excellent service. The location is ideal as well: Galway Bay is across the street, it's a 15-minute walk into Galway city, and the center of Salthill (lively pubs, restaurants, shops, and services) is just up the road. Sean Treacy, the owner, has been unfailingly helpful and congenial. All in all an ideal place to stay in Galway.
