Barnacles Quay Street Hostel

Why stay at Barnacles Quay Street Hostel?

Let us quote the Backpacker Bible shall we? According to Lonely Planet:

“Barnacles is in the heart of the action in Galway on a pedestrianised street. It is located on the same street as all the pubs & restaurants you came to Galway for.”

Located in the Latin Quarter of Galway, THE most happening area, we are surrounded by arty cafes, trendy bars, street performers, traditional pubs and quirky shops. No other hostel is this close to the action and electric atmosphere of Galway.

Also, we have Special Weekly rates available from the 1st September – pay just €85 for 7 night’s accommodation. For further details just ask at reception.
