Location and Contact


• The Woodquay Hostel is located in the heart of Galway on the west coast of Ireland. We offer comfortable accomodation 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, a "buzzing" music scent and theatres, 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 beachs in Salthill which are all within walking distance of the hostel.
• Directions:
• Walking from the station - go straight on up to the top of Eyre Square , veer right arriving at Eyre Square (through the street that divides Dunnes Stores and Dunnes Stores off-license). Continue down Eyre Street, take the next right, just before McSwiggans Bar and Restaurant, keeping to the right hand side you will find the hostel 200 meters straight ahead (passing the Harvest off-license on the way).
• Alternatively:
• Walk from station - go straight to the top of Eyre Square , veer left and then take a right turn down Eglington Street , keeping to the right hand side. Arriving at the corner at Eddie Rockets, take a right turn and follow straight through where you arrive at Woodquay - keep going on straight, we are located 200 meters ahead on the right hand side, directly across from the "Stage Door" Bar.
