Great location in the heart of everything. Be ready for stairs! Bedroom and shower are on the third floor, but not a bad climb. Staff at the hostel around the corner were very helpful. Great value!

Our hostel was amazing. It was so quaint with an Irish feel, and located just perfectly in the middle of the city. We were given ear plugs and warned about the city noise, but we weren't bothered by the noises at all. Barnacles staff were extremely helpful in their recommendations and pointed out all the coolest pubs/restaurants. I would definitely recommend this place for a fun stay!

This was a wonderful flat and in one of the best, most central locations of anywhere we've stayed in the world. It was in one of those areas that is a pedestrian walk way street filled with shops, outdoor cafes and restaurants -- one of the spots that almost no one gets to stay in. Being able to stay in this location definitely made our stay in Galway awesome. We found it to be one of our most favorite cities in Ireland. And the apartment was two floors, charming and perfect for our needs. The front desk guys were also super welcoming and helpful. We'd absolutely stay here again and recommend this apartment to other travelers. (They also have a spectacular located place in Dublin right next to Temple Bar, check that out if your placing to visit there). Thanks for everything Barnacles!
