About Us

The Woodquay or Barrachalla as it is known locally from the Irish “Barr an Caladh” (Head of the Port) is one of the earliest inhabited areas of Galway. It is so called because Fuel (wood & turf) for the city was landed there by boat.


Everything you need in place to make your stay comfortable and most importantly, enjoyable. If you have special requirements, we will always do our best to accommodate you.


The Woodquay Hostel is located in the heart of Galway on the west coast of Ireland. We offer comfortable accomodation in a friendly atmosphere at a budget price.
