(average price per guest per night)

Description: Officially recognized by Hostelsclub as ECO-FRIENDLY

Guidebooks consistently give us fantastic reviews - 'it's big, it's attractive and it has plenty of extras. Private rooms are as good as any you're likely to find in a B&B and the staff is unfailingly friendly' - MTV Europe Guide; ''remarkably accommodating... takes the 's' out of hostel' - Let's Go Guide; 'Galway's newest and by far best hostel ' - Lonely Planet

And many thanks to all of you who have ranked us so highly over the past several years!


We are just a short distance (3 mins walk) from the central bus & train station (Bus Eireann and Irish Rail will get you to here), and the coach park (a variety of private bus companies operate from here) and 100 metres from Eyre Square. All of the action in Galway is just around the corner, but not outside our windows, so you should get a good night's sleep. (Sleep-zone...see?)

Galway is a fantastic university city - its winding mediaeval streets have made for many an adventure... we are here to help you to have the best experience you can! Our staff are knowledgeable about every aspect of the city, able to offer advice and tips whether it's a cultural experience, a cosy pub or stand-up comedy that you're looking for.

We have FREE passes to nightclubs, music and comedy events available to guests; the FREE map you receive on check-in has been designed by our staff, and has all the spots of interest as well as the secret little gems that you may never hear about. The staff have researched the nightlife of Galway extensively for you - it's tough work, but someone's got to do it ;)


We have safety deposit boxes, free wifi and guest PCs, tea & coffee, bed linen, city maps, maps of the West of Ireland - and did we mention that they are all totally FREE?

We also have a self-service laundry facilities; a fully-stocked guest kitchen, electronic luggage lockers where you can securely store your bags for up to a week if you need to; key card access (used at the front door, the entrance to the bedrooms, and the rooms themselves); international payphones, vending machines; pool table, TV, guidebooks. We constantly re-invest in the maintenance and upgrading of our facilities to ensure they are up-to-date and what you need.

A variety of en suite room types are available - female only, male & mixed dorms; twin/double rooms and family rooms - complete with comfy beds, cosy duvets & soft pillows.

Moving to Galway? We have information on everything you need - accommodation, jobs, getting set up with a phone, opening a bank account and we can advise you while you get settled here in those first few weeks!


We have discounted tickets for tours to the Cliffs of Moher (in The Burren region) and Connemara - and tour buses collect (and drop off in the evening) at our front door, daily. We have plenty of maps and guidebooks - and if you get there and realise you'd like to stay the night, we have THE CONNEMARA HOSTEL and THE BURREN HOSTEL!
