Our privileged location, meters from Eyre Square & literally SECONDS from bus & rail links including Citylink, Go Bus, Irish Rail and Bus Eireann, makes us the ideal base to explore and enjoy the unique City of the Tribes!

From the bus station:

We are literally a 10 second walk from the new Coach Station. Upon leaving the station, look across the road & you will see the Tourist Information Office, to the left of this is a lane way, we are just down this laneway on the right, look up for our sign!

There is an hourly bus service running between Dublin Airport / Dublin Central Bus Station and Galway Bus station. Galway is well-serviced by buses all over the country.

There is a private bus company operating a direct coach service between Dublin Airport and Galway City. The coach operator is called GoBus.

From the train/bus station (Bus Eireann):

The bus and train station is a two-minute walk from the hostel

Upon leaving the station building, exit left and continue to the end of the road (approx 20 metres); you will be facing Eyre Square and Kennedy Park. Turn right onto Forster Street, proceed straight until you reach a lane way on your right, our Hostel is situated up this lane way on the left.

There are approximately five trains running daily between Dublin and Galway.

This is the only train link from Galway city.

By car:

From the main dual carriageway leading into Galway from Dublin/Cork/Kerry, at the first roundabout take the first exit (with the sign 'Galway City East').

Go through the next set of traffic lights and go straight through the next roundabout.

Go straight through the next three sets of traffic lights and at the roundabout beside the Huntsman Bar, take the first exit, leading towards the city centre.

Keep straight here and follow the sign towards the city center via The Docks. Continue along Lough Ataila Road and turn right at the traffic lights onto Fairgreen Road, passing the Radisson Hotel on your right, take the left just before the Tourist Information Office & you there!
