Property Description

The Nest Boutique Hostel is an alternative accommodation concept which blurs the lines between a hotel, guesthouse and a hostel by offering quality accommodation with unique social spaces, attention to detail, an individual touch and a strong emphasis on the local community. We also try our best to be as eco friendly as possible and are always searching for new ways to lessen our impact on the environment.

The Nest Boutique Hostel is situated only two minutes’ walk to the shops, bars and restaurants in the seaside village of Salthill. It is less than a minute from the beach and a 3 km long promenade which stretches from Salthill to The Claddagh in Galway. It is a leisurely 15-20 minute stroll into Galway city centre, and the bus stop is just outside our door with a regular bus to and from Galway city (from early morning till midnight).

The Nest offers a majority of double and twin ensuite rooms which have comfy beds, soft lined, power showers and contemporary Irish art work. Family bedrooms are available which contains a double and twin room connected by a private bathroom or two double room connected by a bathroom. For groups or individuals, there are six and seven bed dorms which are ensuite and one dorm with shared bathroom.

    The staff was responsive, friendly, and efficient. When asked for recommendations, they offered great ideas. When I had a bit of trouble, they were quite helpful. I ended up extending my stay past the original reservation!

    Awesome hostel! Great place to stay. A little bit of a walk from city centre (about 20 minutes) but the walk goes along the waterfront! We loved our stay here and hope to go back soon! Breakfast was delicious and room was clean and private. Shared bathroom was always really clean as well!

    This hostel is amazing - the staff are very friendly and attentive. Breakfast in the Morning was really good - they actually had more than cereal and toast. Our room was very clean and we had a private bathroom with towels. We had a great experience and would definately return.

    Loved this hostel, very very clean. All female room had convenient table with mirrors in addition to the bathroom. Breakfast was excellent. It’s a bit far from downtown Galway but definitely within walking distance and Salthill Promenade is an excellent walk along the beach

    We got in later and the evening and had a bit of trouble finding parking near the hostel for our rental car. Staff were super helpful though in giving us directions and recommending restaurants nearby. Facilities were really nice, only downside was checkout is very early and it we felt rushed to leave in the morning.
