Celtic Tourist Hostel reopened its doors in January 2010 and is located in the heart of Galway City. It's just off Eyre Square on Queen Street..This cosy small 38 bed hostel is intimate, clean, and friendly. In fact, it's a home away from home. Friendships formed here will last a lifetime.

The staff are here to make your stay with us happy and memorable and to advise on trips and places to visit.

Perfect location for those breaks away with access to all the local amenities including bars, shops and restaurants with easy access to the surounding countryside as well.
