Overview

Sleepzone is in the heart of Galway – an ideal base for exploring the city and its surroundings. We're in a quiet street right next to the action, so you can party on Saturday and sleep it off on Sunday! Grab a free breakfast before exploring with your free city map. Whether you're into traditional Irish music, local comedy or partying, our friendly staff can advise you on where to go, or arrange discount tours to some of the area's spectacular scenic spots. We have cosy common areas where you can meet your fellow travellers, and a modern, well-equipped kitchen that's a great place to while away the evening with friends over a homemade dinner.

Location

We're just 5 minutes' walk from Eyre Square, the city's main hub. You'll also be within walking distance of most of the city's must-see sights and its top nightlife spots. Browse artisan boutiques in the vibrant Latin Quarter, under 10 minutes away by foot, then cross over the river to catch the latest exhibition at the Galway Arts Centre. Galway Airport is easy to get to – it takes about 30 minutes on the 425A bus. We're a 3-minute stroll from the two main bus and train stations.

Rooms and Dorms

We've got rooms for everyone, whether you want to share travel experiences with new people in a mixed or female-only dorm or couple up in a private room. Free Wi-Fi and international power sockets mean you can keep your phone charged and your social media up to date.

Extras and activities

You can store your valuables free of charge in the lockers at reception (just bring a padlock). For a bit more security, or if you're not travelling so light, we also have large coin-operated lockers.

    Staff was very friendly and gave excellent recommendations. The bathroom amenities we're okay, but could have been cleaner, but the lounge area was well maintained and the breakfast place had a good selection of bread and tea.

    Overall, I really enjoyed my stay in Galway. The only reason I didn't give the hostel a 10/10 rating was because on my last night there, I came back from a day trip and found that my bed from the night before had been taken. The hostel doesn't assign beds (which could be nice if you're with a group), but my friend also had her bed taken the first night there. Also, around midnight there was a drunk guy that came into the room and woke everyone up. But other than that, it was a good trip!

    The Sleepzone provided a great stay! I was able to book a private room for 4 very last minute and the staff kept our stuff safe while we roamed the close-by city before check in. Beds were comfy, markets were nearby and the atmosphere was very relaxed. A really good place to stay!

    It was a nice hostel, but I found that some of the other cooupants were either very early birds - to bed before 8pm or very late birds not in before 2am. As there were both in our dorm, I tried to be middling and get to bed for around 10 or 11 pm, but still thought I was waking the early birds and then woken myself by the night owls. One of whom complained at my snoring, when there were at least two or three others also snoring, which had kept me awake in the first place. Ah well, all an expe
