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.

    This is the best and most organized hostel in Ireland! We were on the road for 7 days, drove 1000km around the country and stayed in lots of hostels. This was the best hostel we stayed. The rooms had everything we need, tables, lockers, confortable and silent beds. The breakfast was amazing, with local food. The staff were very friendly and helped us a lot with informations. There is a parking lot with few spaces but in the street near the hostel is free to park. We definitely recommend!

    For the same cost as almost all hostels in Ireland, it is definitely worth your money. Breakfast includes french press coffee, pastries, muffins, yogurt, toast, etc. Nice common room, everything is very clean, the bathrooms are very nice.

    There was almost everything available for cooking. Over the Day there were furthermore always some sweets to eat (leftovers from breakfast). The interior Design is so lovely!

    Wow, what a perfect hostel! The only negative thing I have to say is that I couldn’t stay longer - or forever! This is a perfect hostel, cozy and spotlessly clean rooms, great staff, and an incredible atmosphere. I will absolutely stay here again and recommend this place to anyone visiting Galway!

    One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in! A better breakfast than even most hotels or bnbs will provide. My friend and I got a double ensuite room and felt it was great value. The staff was extremely helpful, chatting and helping us plan our route to Connemara. Easy access to city centre , and we felt safe walking to and from the place at night. Wonderful stay!

    Nice little hostel with a plus for parking. Good breakfast variety. Beds were clean and comfy. The only downside is it's a little far to walk to town, especially in the rain, but overall pleasant stay.

    Good value for the money. Especially if you don’t want to be around all the noise of city center. Great French press coffee in the AM. Some parking available nearby. Shower/bathrooms in women’s shared dorm were ehh. No access to other showers or bathrooms if room is full and the one is in use. And lockers in dorms are on the smaller side. I would stay again, but maybe would give the private rooms a shot.
