‘Top Choice’ in Galway – ‘Easygoing staff, a full range of facilities and a cream-in-the-doughnut location just off Eyre Sq make this a top choice. Amenities include two self-catering kitchens and two cosy TV lounges. Some rooms have bay views”

Kinlay is Galway’s most popular hostel for solo travellers. Our Galway hostel is clean, safe, friendly and always great value for money.

We have a large common area where people just hang out, chat, play the piano or one of our guitars and generally just get to know each other. There’s books to read and lots of games to play – great for getting people to mix together very easily. Our staff are chilled out too and always have time for a chat and to point you in the right direction.
