About Galway

Well known for its role in Ed Sheeran’s hit on his Divide album, good ole Galway is one of Ireland’s most interactive cities. Lying along the River Corrib, you’ll find yourself with a diverse range of experiences to choose from. Galway is the perfect destination for a unique and memorable (depending on how much beer one consumes) pub crawl.

Hostels in Galway offer a range of different types of accommodation, so we’re sure we can help you find a place to stay that best suits your needs. Whether you’re on a tight budget or you’re looking to splash out a little and treat yo’self, check out our guide to the best hostels in Galway to find your perfect match. A Galway hostel with amazing freebies like walking tours, breakfasts and nightly events? No problem! One with a buzzing bar where you’ll always meet other travellers? Sure! We’ve even got a boutique hostel right on the beach that puts on a free healthy breakfast spread.

You’ll find 20 plus hostels scattered throughout the city and nearby suburbs, with the majority centrally located. Choosing a hostel in Galway city centre will not only come in handy on those late night/ early morning walks (stumbles) home after a night of bar hopping but it also makes transportation easier. If you’re after a bit of fresh sea air in your lungs, choose a hostel in the seaside village of Salthill on the outskirts of Galway where you can enjoy a peaceful setting that’s only 20 minutes walking from the centre.

Galway is perfect for a weekend getaway or a base from which to explore the west of Ireland. While you’re in town be sure to take advantage of your location and organize day trips to places such as the Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands and Dingle bay to say hi to Fungie, the friendly local dolphin in the bay. You won’t be short on cultural activities when in Galway either, visit one of the museums, take a stroll along the Spanish Arch and explore the many of pubs and cafes this city has to offer.

Transportation in Galway makes exploring and adventuring around the town a breeze. A large travel network serves all the suburbs of Galway city from early morning until night, making buses the easiest way to get around the city. Alternatively, (if it isn’t obvious) ferries are your new pals if you’re wanting to explore offshore. Just hop on a shuttle bus that runs from the city centre to the port and catch your ferry, it’s that easy. It’s also important to note that there is a regular rail service that serves towns between Dublin and Galway, the Galway service is located right in the city centre which makes your travels that little bit easier and stress-free. Lastly, what better way to explore the city’s narrow streets and stunning scenery than by hiring a bike and peddling yourself to new adventures.
