Exceptional 10.0
Top notch hostel stay.
The Nest is a great place to stay with welcoming staff, clean comfortable rooms. High class hostel which means you have access to a communal kitchen 7-11 which means you can make pack ups and unlimited tea! Can’t recommend enough!

Lovely hostel by Galway Bay
Lovely hostel, super close to Galway Bay. 20 min walk into the centre. If you walk along the front, you get a gorgeous view that made us happy to have chosen accommodation out of the main centre. The room was clean & comfy, the staff were friendly & helpful, & breakfast was lush. Thank you!
