cheap budget accomodation

We boyfriend and I stayed here for the Galway races, the reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. They informed us there was a free shuttle bus into town from reception. The rooms were very basic but clean. The room was en suite but sharing with another room (access from both room's). All doors were swipe access and although we were sharing an apartment with strangers it felt safe. Continental breakfast was included in our package providing cereal and toast, tea, coffee and a range of juices. We booked here as most accommodation was booked out due to the racing festival however, we were pleasantly surprised. Overall, the staff were friendly, the accommodation was basic but clean, perfect for the very little amount of time we were in the room and the budget price.

Campus stay

Staying on campus in student accommodation at NUI Galway. The location is great, breakfast was great. Only criticism is that the apartments are slightly dated decorwise. Could do with fresh painting and a bit of a spruce up. Kitchen/living area could do with a really deep clean. Would be hesitant using it, but we were only there one night so it didn't matter. Great idea and good value for money

Great for uni summer school

Perfect spot to stay while undertaking a summer school at the university. Very comfortable, great wifi, decent breakfast in the morning and easy access to laundry facilities and the uni. Issues with lack of places close by to eat - the nearest take away places were about a 15-20 minute walk and then to get into town was about 25-30 minute walk. After a long day of classes, just wanted to have something close by and get to my room some nights and that wasn't easy. The free shuttle was great when you could get on it and it finishes way too early.

WARNING: AVOID THIS PLACE BY ANY MEANS

Was offered a 6ft by 6ft dirty, dark cell. I am still reeling from astonishment.

Die Unterkunft ist sehr gut gelegen. Galway City ist gut zu Fuss (max. 30min) erreichbar oder in ein paar Fahrminuten mit dem kostenlosen Shuttlebus. Aber leider war das Zimmer winzig, äusserst sporadisch eingerichtet und enorm schmutzig (zumindest für Schweizer Verhältnisse). Auch die vielen Insekten und Spinnen liessen keine Begeisterung aufkommen. Andererseits handelt es sich um ein Studentenwohnheim, das über den Sommer an Feriengäste vermietet wird. Stellt man sich bewusst darauf ein, ist ein Aufenthalt für 1, 2 Nächte wegen der guten Lage und den günstigen Preise durchaus in Ordnung.
