Where to stay in Galway

Stay at the center of Ireland's "Most Irish City," Galway City, by booking a hotel or hostel near Eyre Square, from which all city sights are walkable. If you prefer accommodation with more character, stay at a charming guesthouse or bed and breakfast just outside of the center, or look for lodging in the city's Latin Quarter, a bohemian neighborhood lined with cafes, galleries, and pubs. If you want to explore Galway County, book accommodations in the city, since it's a tourism and transportation hub on the West Coast. If you prefer the quiet countryside, seek out small, family-owned guesthouses on the Aran Islands or a cottage on the Connemara Peninsula.

  • More than a bookshop, it's a social centre, an event, an essential part of the Galway experience. And it sells books too! A must for readers of all ages. I go there just for the atmosphere, but always come away with an armful of new reading. They even have a loyalty card these days.
  • What a wonderful place. I could spend here days just browsing through thousands of new and old books. There is not much you cannot find here.
  • Brilliant browsing among books of every genre. Don't know what you like? You'll find the answer here!
  • A gem of a place! This bookstore has a huge selection of new and second hand books, a great resource if you are trying to track down a particular title, the staff are extremely knowledgeable and happy to help. A bookshop I always stop into when I'm in Galway city.
  • if you like books, don't miss this place. rooms and rooms of books. the colours. the smell. you'll love it.
