Excellent location and great value for money! We had a great time at Barnacles and were surprised by the range of travellers we encountered ; school groups, families, older couples and young travellers. Check in was an easy process, although located right in the heart of Galway's main tourist area we slept comfortably and were not disturbed. ...

Lovely, friendly hotel in a charming town I think this is classed as a two-star hotel, but it far exceeded my expectations for a hotel in that class. It was comfortable, clean and very charming. We enjoyed our time there very much.

I hope I got the rating technique right - Corrib Village is a Student Accommodation Village - rented out during student holidays. The staff were lovely and I liked the accommodation. The other guests were also very nice. Galway as a place to visit improves all the time!

Decent hostel, beautiful location. Pretty good as far as hostels go - I would certainly recommend that you stay in Letterfrack! The room was simply, but adequately, furnished, the shower was nice and warm and the beds comfortable. The shared living room had good views and good cooking facilities.

Pocket Guide: 2 stars Hotels in Galway

For those looking to spend some time in Galway on a budget, there’s lots to recommend the city’s extensive choice of two star hotels. The hotels, guesthouses and bed and breakfast accommodation are in some of Galway’s prime locations and at a price that’s sure to please. And a discounted price needn’t mean discounted quality – budget hotels in Galway usually meet a very high standard of accommodation. A no-frills getaway to Galway is a great way to enjoy the city, with lots of opportunities to save your pennies to spend elsewhere in the city. Galway’s zippy arts scene, its panoply of shops and restaurants and multitude of sights make it a great place to stay.

Galway’s History and Heritage

Traditional Irish music is everywhere in Galway – the pubs rattle and hum to the sounds of the fiddle and the bodhran drum. Galwegians love their traditional Irish music and it’s part of the city’s lifeblood. But there’s more to Galway than rebel songs and stout – the city also boasts a fine medieval church, impressive city walls and landmarks that were built by the Galway “Tribes” – 14 merchant families who once ruled the town. Galway’s cobbled streets, traditionally painted buildings and picturesque River Corrib lend the city a lively atmosphere that can be enjoyed whatever your budget.

Galway Arts and Festivals

Galway is known as “The City of Festivals” and it certainly lives up to its name. For two weeks every summer, the Galway International Arts Festival floods the streets with performer, and the city is proud to call it the biggest festival of its kind in Ireland. In the autumn, visitors flock to the Galway Theatre Festival, when the cream of Irish acting and performing talent comes to town. Galway has five major theatres, and most hotels will have great advice about what’s hot and what’s not.

Around Galway

Galway is close to several great examples of ancient Irish culture, with dolmens and Neolithic standing stones strewn across the county. There are several other things that will capture the imagination, not least the large selection of castles dating back to the Norman invaders.</p?

Galway’s Best Restaurants

Some of Ireland’s best restaurants are in Galway, with world-class cuisine from all parts of the globe. The city’s love affair with food has put it at the forefront of Ireland’s organic food movement and you can also find fantastic local cheeses, organic meat and freshly baked artisanal bread at Galway Market. For a taste of Ireland’s finest brews, try the city’s many pubs for a traditional pint of stout, or a craft beer.
