This is NUIG's student village and is not suitable for anyone save a bunch of lads/ladettes. The receptionist who checked us in failed to encode the room keys (and was generally wool-headed), so I had to walk all the way back across the grounds to get them encoded. The atmosphere is as you might expect in a place built with cost-saving as a main driving factor. The bathroom was unpleasant with a shower head encrusted with limescale. When we tried to complain at check-out we were told it was our own fault. I would neither return nor recommend.
