The Kinlay has won major awards for being a top hostel in Europe, and it is well-deserved. Centrally located on Eyre Square, clean-as-a-whistle and staffed by people who are friendly, knowledgeable and upbeat, it is a top notch hostel. I just returned from my third stay at Kinlay, and its brand new, full-service coffee bar on the first level was an unexpected treat. I had 24 students with me, and they loved the spacious common room, fully-equipped kitchen, en-suite rooms, and opportunities to interact with people from every corner of the world.
However, the magic ingredient of Kinlay is Frank O'Connell, it's manager. He totally understands customer service and is continually working to improve the Kinlay's space, accommodations and services. The Kinlay is a shiny jewel in the center of Galway City, gateway to the gorgeous west of Ireland and well-worth a day, a week or even a longer stay.
