Westpoint is the home of the very personable hosts Mairead and Ray McGuire where a real Irish welcome awaits you. This is no ordinary B&B, the house is a well laid out Bed & Breakfast, where your privacy is always respected. The quality of accommodation is assured and has multi recommendations. For your comfort the house is non-smoking, very nicely decorated, has a beautiful back garden, well laid out lawn and shrubbery with seasonal flowers-in-bloom. Bedrooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and absolutely clean, all are en-suite with orthopaedic beds and electric blankets, tv, tea/coffee making facilities and hairdryers. There is a spacious Guest Lounge where one can relax, read, watch TV or just have a 'plain old chat' with other guests. Westpoint is situated in Salthill, a quiet residential area of Galway's seaside suburb, with free guest off street parking, is on the City Bus Route and is well serviced by Taxi/Cabs. It is approximately 100 metres above sea level and from the house front has excellent views of Galway Bay and the Clare Hills. The granite wall to the front of the house dates back to the 1840's 'the famine era', as a result of development very little of this original wall remains on the road. During this era the local landlord created employment for his labourers by building the wall right down to the beach and paid them daily with enough porridge to feed their families. It is a ten minute down hill walk to the Beach and seven minutes drive to the City Centre, excellent directions are available to arrive at the house and to get to the city. Westpoint, has no military connections so you need not worry about reveille. A choice of breakfast is served from 8.00 am in the Dining Room which overlooks the landscaped garden, each breakfast is freshly cooked by Mairead and occasionally served by Ray. Westpoint is an ideal base to undertake day tours of Connemara, the Burren or Aran Islands. If you are tired of driving on the 'wrong side of the road' or you want to give the driver a break, Coach Tours of Connemara and the Burren are available and collection can be arranged from Westpoint. Both Mairead and Ray have a detailed knowledge of the West of Ireland and specifically the Galway area and can advise what is best to do and visit.
