About the Homestay
I really enjoy learning and meeting new people from all over the world. My name is Arun and I am here to make sure that your stay with me is enjoyable and comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and suitable for families.
Weather you are staying as a student, employee or a holiday maker, you are welcome to my home. Local amenities available within a walking distance is Sheridan's Pub (beer house and restaurant) and Clybaun Stores (shop), Clybaun Hotel and leisure center, three supermarkets and other shopping outlets, there are several pharmacies in the area.
Do you enjoy the outdoors? Barna woods is our local park and small forest within a walking distance that offers beautiful woodland scenery and tranquil walks with earthy smells to tickle the senses. Just past the woods, you can find the breathtaking beach Silver Strand which has a safe, shallow, sandy beach bounded on one side by a cliff. It is particularly popular with young families and faces directly into Galway Bay giving spectacular views of Salthill. Also, note that you will be within 5 minutes drive from the Wild Atlantic Way with more fantastic views and scenery to be discovered.
Due to different allergies that people may have, for food safety I do not provide meals with this service, however, guests are welcome to use the kitchen between 10 am and 10 pm to cook your creations.
Please be sure to complete your booking as fast as you can to secure your dates as often multiple interests occur. If you are traveling on a budget, Discounts are available. Just ask and I will do my very best to accommodate you. Looking forward to meet you.

We were road tripping around Ireland and we had already planned to stay with Arun in Galway. He sent through all the information days before our arrival and was very accomodating when we didn't arrive until very late. His place is lovely, warm, homely and Arun is a great person to have as your host. Arun even let us stay an extra night at very late notice and was very helpful with local information. We can't wait to stay with him again next time :)
Good stay at Arun's
My Homestay was fantastic. Arun was outstanding and extremely helpful in any way possible. I loved my month spent staying in Arun's home. I will be back!
It is a great place to stay only 10 min bus drive to Galway city. Arun is very kind and helpful. I deeply recommend this homestay.
