There is a uniqueness that blesses Galway city and, if you seek it and want to find it, then staying at Sorcha Molloy’s Heron’s Rest will show you exactly what that Galway magic is all about.
The magic is all about doing things differently, whilst doing them superbly well. It’s a West Coast sprezzatura: Galway folk make it seem effortless to be original, to be hospitable, to be terrific fun, and they toss off these attributes as if they arrive with the ether. 
And that’s what makes Heron’s Rest unique. Of course it has the most extraordinary location – hard by the River Corrib, a literal stone’s throw from the centre of the city.
But what makes it unique is Sorcha’s way of doing things. She has a designer’s eye. She has a decorator’s feel for colour and texture. She has a hotelier’s welcome and, when you put all of these strengths together, then you wind up with a destination which is, quite simply, unique.
For food lovers, there isn’t a better choice in Galway, because all the most creative restaurants are a few minutes’ walk away. Best of all, with the proximity of the river, you truly feel that you are at the centre of all the action: you feel that you are not just in Galway, you feel that you are of Galway.
What a feeling.

The Heron's Rest offers self-catering with a hamper of gourmet breakfast essentials provided, containing Burren Smoke House salmon, Gubeen cheese and chorizo, Mike Brown's eggs, local apple juice, Glenstall butter, Bowl- A Granola Muesli, Moss’s farm organic milk and natural yoghurt, homemade jam, fresh cherry tomatoes, fruit, Geometry coffee. Minimum stay three days. Advance booking essential.
