SON AMAR: GREAT B&B OUTSIDE GALWAY CITY
The Son Amar in Orenmore just outside Galway City came highly recommended. It lived up to our expectations. This was the view from our window which overlooked Galway Bay. It was inexpensive and perfect.

Sacre Coeur/Sacre Ceour and O'Flaherty's Hostel: Memories or Horror Nights
In Galway town I seem to attract lousy accommodation apparently... in 1990 we stayed in O'Flaherty's hostel - in a room which looked like a garage and smelled like a rabbit cage (see picture). In 2001 we stayed in a B&B which was called Sacre Coeur on one side of its sign - and Sacre Ceour on the other ;-) And the rooms were ... hmmm let's say ... basic!
Hostel: 4 IEP incl. breakfast
B&B: 17.00 IEP but not worth it!

A short drive north of the city of Galway is the town of Corandula and Cregg Castle. This is a wonderful B&B experience. It may not be Ashford Castle's 5 star establishement, but it IS a wonderful little Castle. And the lovely people who run it make this a personal favorite. I can't recommend Cregg Castle highly enough!!!!!
marvelous hosts, warm hospitality, great music in the evening, and excellent food!!!

Arch View Hostel - DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If I haven't put you off (see below) it was ý12 a night in 2002 for a bunk in a very crowded 10 bed dorm (remains of very old blinds on the windows but no curtains so it's bright pretty early)
Unless you like your hostels with dirty bedlinen, graffiti on the toilet doors, dirty carpets (actually more holes than carpets on the stairs) & a complete fire trap then avoid this hostel at all costs. Check out Barnacles or Kinlay House instead - they're more central and a lot nicer.
This hostel claims to be approved by Bord Failte (Irish Tourist Board) but when I rang them to complain after my expericence I discovered that this claim is false - they are NOT approved.

Arch View Hostel: Arch View Hostel
The reason this hostel is included is NOT because it is recommended. On the contrary, I feel obliged to steer people away from this place. They are badly organised, filthy and generally unpleasant.
It is probably the cheapest hostel in Galway but trust me, you'd rather spend the extra £4 or £5 and go to a better hostel.

Don't think there is a name for it. Easily recognisable by the color of the house - orange.
Nice, clean and cosy with Irish breakfast

There are many B&B's, hotels, hostels and private rental cottages available. We rented a cottage in Ballyvaughan for the week. The cottage was beautiful, large and spacious, very well appointed. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. The cottages were the Ballyvaughan Village & Cottages.
The cost of the cottage for one week was 295 euros, about 180 pounds sterling and it could accommodate 4 people.
The cottage had its own private garden, tv and video and washer/dryer and joy of joys a dishwasher.

B&B: Bed and Breakfast
Bed and breakfast places are plenty, and inexpensive, and usually with very friendly hosts. They are also a great way to meet interesting fellow travellers.
However, during peak season- summers- you would still be advised to beware the big rush and make advance bookings...

Bed and breakfast the reasonable choice for me. Like this you'l be in a quiet (?!) residential area and still on 10 minutes walk from the city centre. Plus you have bed and you have breakfast.
You have to wake up before 9:30 or you'll miss the breakfast.

There's plenty of all types of accomodation here.
If you like to be pampered the Corrib Hotel is the place to be. The food is great, and you have a gym and leisure centre, and more importantly very friendly service. It is a mile or two from the centre of town but you can get a taxi. I would suggest booking the taxi early, as I'd to wait 40mins the last time I was there.
For more reasonable accomodation, I'd say The Jury's Inn, on the docks close to the city centre would suit you.
It costs £50 per room per night, and you can sleep as many per room as you please.
To stay right in the centre The Skeffington is a beautiful Hotel to stay in. It has just been renovated recently. It is situated right in the heart of Galway, Eyre Square. You can walk out the door and straight down shop street.
They are all very busy places so book early.

Beach Haven Cottage in Carna,...
Beach Haven Cottage in Carna, County Galway boosted 3 bedrooms, kitchen, eating area, full bath on the first floor and a sitting area on the second with a big picture window view of the Atlantic 50 ft or less from your door. There was central heat and two peat burning fireplaces....one in the sitting area and one in the dining area. The house was sparsely furnished( not a lot of knicknacks but all the comforts of home) and had all appliances and cookware needed, and bedding. Very private retreat by the sea. If interested contact Brid Mulkerins, Leenane Development at firstname.lastname@example.org They will give you the rates. We paid $300 American a week in the off season of Sept/Oct. I want to go back so in giving up this secret sanctuary, I hope it will still be available! ( Pleas tell Brid that Marshall and Cher from Michigan recommended her place) You will not be disappointed!
$300 American from Sat to Sat off season.
Reasonable, great views and walks, not for swimming but beach near by. Walled yard with a gate. picnic table. 2 peat burning stoves. well equiped kitchen. Coin operated electric. The Mulkerrins are a young professional couple who are willing to show you how anything works. The electricity was about 1 Irish $ a day....more if we used the electric clothes dryer.
