    Perfect location in the centre of fun, bars and restaurants right outside.. just a little noisey but mostly stopped after midnight.. room was very hot but otherwise clean. Staff were extremely helpful with local knowledge.

    Barnacles is probably one of the best hostels I have been to. Perfect location, superb staff and atmosphere, excellent cleanliness. I absolutely loved my stay there, and I will definitely go back soon.

    Really good hosting, the receptionist Sean was really cool , beds were fine and the food was nice and free. Plus the hotel was cheap considering Galway is an expensive city and we didn't have to book our room in advance

    Hi BabsieUK Thanks for leaving your excellent review but I think you stayed at our sister hostel Barnacles Dublin. We are delighted to hear you had a great time there and maybe next time your group can visit us in Galway. Enjoy the wedding!:) Regards...More

    Sorry so long, but yes, we had a rental car as well. There was a parking garage about 2 blocks away near the water.
