About Woodquay Hostel Galway City

The Woodquay Hostel is located in the heart of Galway on the west coast of Ireland. We offer comfortable accommodation in a friendly atmosphere at a budget price.

The Hostel is in a safe and central position near the bus and train stations and a stone's throw from the main shopping and cultural sites of Galway City, “home to a super mix of pubs, clubs and restaurants, its "buzzing" scene of music and theatres with shops and cafes lining the narrow cobbled streets”.

Galway is a fast growing city where the modern meets the traditional on almost every street corner. It is an ideal spot from which to begin a trip further west along the coast of Connemara, to head across the sea to the Aran Islands or to further inland.

Galway is also notorious for its many historic sites which you can visit, from the famous Salmon Weir Bridge, historic Galway Cathedral through to the beautiful beaches in Salthill which are all within walking distance of the hostel.

In addition to our en suite rooms, guests can avail of our spacious fully equipped kitchen, dining room and common room. An added advantage to our location is that we are situated behind Galway main thoroughfares thus ensuring a comfortable night sleep to all our guests.

The Aran Islands are 48Kms out into the Atlantic from Galway City. Consisting of Inishmore, Inishmaan and Inisheer, many Islanders are Gaelic speaking and a large number of students visit these rugged and barren islands every year.
