I've stayed at both Barnacles Galway and Dublin and the locations are superb - right in the middle of the best parts of each city, albeit it can be a little noisy. The beds are really comfortable and we love the lockable cages underneath the beds so you can store your belongings for free. Barnacles is a very colorful, fun hostel, with lots of recommended activities offered.

Great hostel and atmosphere. Staff were friendly and helpful from arrival to departure. For being on a main strip surrounded by bars I was suprise at how quite the rooms were. Would definitely return and recommend to others

Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, though one staff member did underestimate the walk time to the Galway Bay Hotel (for Trad on the Prom) by quite a bit. (Note: it can easily take over an hour to walk even at a somewhat brisk pace, if you stop to take pictures here and there)

It was more of a home than a hostel. They go out of their way to help you feel comfortable. I was laying on the lounge very cold and one of the hosts came in and gave me a blanket, now that's a comfort to know someone's looking out for me. My adaptor wasn't working, and again, they came to my aid. They are very thoughtful and kind.
