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 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 long promenade which stretches from Salthill to The Claddagh in Galway. It is a leisurely 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 linen, power showers and contemporary Irish art work. Family bedrooms are available which contain a double and twin room connected by a private bathroom or two double rooms connected by a bathroom. For groups or individuals, there are six and seven bed dorms which are ensuite and one dorm with shared bathroom. Here at The Nest we have a variety of flexible room types to suit any groups needs and a continental style breakfast can be provided for ?6 per person per day and consists of fresh bread, a pastry, tea, coffee, cheese, granola, fresh fruit and a selection of spreads. Breakfast can be booked on arrival.

Superb hostel. There's a bus directly from the train station that goes through downtown and stops directly in front of the hostel – though at only 20 min, walking is also a very viable option. Salthill is a lovely area right near the beach, which is right next to the hostel. The hostel is very clean, nicely decorated, and the staff is incredibly helpful. Laundry is included and the bathrooms/showers were very clean and accessible. Secure and cozy. Absolutely recommend to anyone staying in Galway
