Great stay at The Nest
We loved our stay at The Nest The staff were great and the room was clean and designed with upscaled materials. The breakfast in the morning was great. There are pubs and restaurants close by. We would stay again.

not for my kind
Dangerously harassed by the owner of the premises for the 4th time in 4 months; currently going over it, 40 km away from there

Very good 8.0
Good stay
We had a wonderful stay here. You can walk to the ocean and lots of cafe's and pubs available in walking distance. If you want to go into Galway there's a bus the drops you off right at the door of Nest Boutique. Very helpful at the desk

Top notch hostel stay.
The Nest is a great place to stay with welcoming staff, clean comfortable rooms. High class hostel which means you have access to a communal kitchen 7-11 which means you can make pack ups and unlimited tea! Can’t recommend enough!
