It's hard to find good, cheap accommodation in Galway, so I opted to stay at Corrib Village, which is actually the dorms at the National University. It was more expensive than a hostel but cheaper than a hotel. Pro: quiet, clean, albeit spartan room with no snoring roommates. Cons: In order to get breakfast, or even coffee, you have to... More

Great for budget accommodation- if you just want someone to sleep/shower this is great. Rooms are very basic but fine. The continental breakfast of juice/tea and coffee/cereals and toasts is good value start to the day. Quite a long walk from town (maybe 30 minutes) so take comfortable shoes- the shuttle bus is good but runs a limited service.

Filthy bathroom and cold water in the shower! We booked the en suite but got "standard room" email confirmation instead. The hotel staff claimed it was not their fault. We got a room with a shared bathroom. Very unpleasant surprise. No info about the check-in time (neither on the confirmation that I received nor Corrib Village website). It turned out... More

Just to put my review into context, I'm a Galway girl living in Wexford & I wanted to pop home for a few days with the kids and needed a budget option. I have 4 kids and we're too many to turn up on my family's doorsteps. Full house rentals were working out too expensive so got a 4 bed... More

The rooms were clean & functional (though strangely the bathrooms seem to be designed to be hosed down after student nights & our toilet made a very odd honking nose when flushed!)! Free wifi. Free shuttle bus into Eyre Square (else it's quite a walk). Arrive *early* for this, else the driver may not let you on. Staff in the... More

I stayed here as part of an organised group of 20+ young people. We were very warmly received, and staff seemed accustomed to the constant stream of our young people who'd misplaced their bedroom keycards. The accommodation is basic, but exceptionally affordable. I would recommend to large families who perhaps are on a tight budget and would appreciate being able... More

Dear TripAdvisor member, Thank you for reviewing Corrib Village student accommodation (September – May). Due to its location on the NUI Galway campus and the fact that we also organise free events throughout the academic year for residents, it is indeed a great place for students to meet new people. However, we welcome not only first years, but a mix... More

Took some finding as there are no perceivable street signs for this student village complex but who cares when the reception staff are as good as this.
