About
Description
In Galway City centre The Herons Rest lies nestled on the banks of the river Corrib overlooking the traditional Claddagh harbour. This idyllic waterside location is only 3 mins from the hustle and bustle of More the centre of town and the 'craic' of Galway's Latin Quarter. We offer 3 double sea view ensuite bedrooms with gourmet breakfast buffet and also one 3 bedroom self-catering townhouse which can be booked as one unit for groups or families. Each cosy chic bedroom has stunning views overlooking the Claddagh Harbour and the famous Galway Bay. Outside the water is teaming with wildlife such as, otters, herons and the largest colony of mute swans in Western Europe. Traditional sailing boats named 'Galway Hookers' can be watched setting sail from your bedroom window and our binoculars enhance the view that stretches across to the Burren Hills. We call it 'keeping it country in the city'. Our philosophy at The Herons Rest is to ensure our guests get the best of Galway. Welcome! Less
