Overview

The Salmon Weir Hostel is just two minutes from the banks of the River Corrib in lively central Galway. After a day hiking the coast path or exploring the city, reboot with a free barbecue on our sheltered outdoor terrace. As the nightlife hub of the west, Galway is packed full of pubs and clubs that'll show you how to party like the Irish. We've extended our curfew to 3 in the morning for those who want to hit the town, and we brew free tea and coffee to wake you up the next day.

Location

Shannon is the nearest airport to Galway. Hop on a Bus Éireann coach and be in the city centre in an hour. We're right in the heart of town, so you can walk through the historic streets and stop off at the 16th-century Spanish arch (home to the City Museum) or drop into Galway Cathedral. The bus and train stations are a 5-minute walk from the hostel, so exploring further out into Ireland is easy.

Rooms and Dorms

If you're on a trip with a partner or buddy we have private twin and double rooms for a bit of extra personal space. Or choose mixed dorms in a range of sizes depending on how sociable you're feeling! Rooms are homely and have fresh linen ready when you arrive. And each bunk has its own locker so you can safely stow your backpack. We've got towels and hairdryers for hire if you've decided to travel light.

Extras and activities

With free Wi-Fi and internet access at our computer stations, you can stay connected on your Irish adventure. If you've hired a bike to explore the area under your own steam you can park up in our cycle store. Make the most of our free city maps and scour our travel library for inspiration. Our large common room has a TV, DVDs and board games for nights when you're giving the pub a miss. And our communal kitchen's always open!

    The only problem I had was that they forgot to give us our key to our room so our stuff remained unsecured for 30 or so minutes. However, besides that, it was very nice and great for the price.

    We stayed here on a Friday night, if you just want to sleep this may not be the best choice for you, it was a party hostel but everyone was so friendly and it was a lot of fun, we all hit the pubs together and everyone made sure to take care of us. The bunk beds in our area were less than a metre apart, so not much room for our luggage or to move around, but the beds are comfortable. The hostel is not the cleanest, but it is really homely, it kind of feels like a group house.

    The best Fabrizio, the Italian man who works there. The price is "normal" between the week, but espensive for the weekend for services (like other hostels in Galway, anyway). People who stayed there were nice and also interesting, but the rooms are small and in general not so good in my opinion.

    Exactly what was expected for a cheap hostel. Could have done with a sweep under the beds and washing the sheets but was super cheap so cant complain. The only negative was having to be back in the hostel by 3am. Was a bit weird having a home time when your out on the session. There was a good few of us together so didnt mind too much but could be annoying if you met people out and wanted to stay out a bit before heading to bed. Sure look €14 for a bed You make it work

    NEVER AGAIN. The atmosphere, cleanliness and facilities were dire. My bed was not ready until 5pm (arrive time 3pm). The man running the place was aggressive and defensive about this. The clientele seemed strange and suspicious. The only saving grace was the bed I had, in my private room, was comfortable, so this is where I hid for the night. There was virtually no security so I was not comfortable leaving my possessions in their ‘storage space’, in the sitting room in plain view.
