BrilliantPosted Apr 26, 2014
We enjoyed our stay at Barnacles. A relaxed and fun place with great staff . Situated close to pubs shop s and restaurants but not noisy in room. Would happily recommend.

Great location but don't expect muchPosted Mar 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
The location couldn't be better (right around all the pubs, restaurants in the town center) and the people were nice. But otherwise, don't expect much: shower was lukewarm at best (most of the time just cold), our double room was very small (just one bed: we couldn't even be up at the same time), quite cold and poorly insulated.

I had a great time staying at the Barnacle- Galway! It was close to everything I wanted to do, they were welcoming and helpful with our itinerary which mostly consisted of shopping and pub crawls. Great craic! Will stay there again next time.

Good hostel in a great locationPosted Oct 7, 2013
Cons: Breakfast is only for a short time in the early morning and not much to eat
Location: Great spot. Tons of bars and restaurants
Booked a private room with a private bath for 2 people. Was a pretty good price and was located on a busy street in the heart of town. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Lots of fun restaurants and bars in the close area. Room itself was very small, but worked for us. Still very clean and a pretty good bathroom. Compared to other hostels in Ireland this one is a little above average, but the location made it great. Good place to stay if you are looking for some night life and headed out to have some fun.

Very convenient location and excellent servicePosted Sep 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
I had trouble with my booking through hotels.com (Expedia apparently cancelled my reservation?), but the staff worked to resolve it and were very helpful. They made sure I was taken care of and had excellent recommendations for things to do in the surrounding area. The room wasn't what I originally reserved since those were all booked, but the dorm room I ended up in instead was very clean.

The location was wonderful for sightseeing and enjoying the nightlife. Since it is in the heart of the city, it was a bit loud at night, but the staff were very attentive and friendly. Would definitely recommend this location to others staying in Galway.
