Guest reviews for Corrib Village
uni dorm accommodation is aok - it is what it is.
On a "flying" summer trip around Ireland, any "port-in-a-storm" is welcome. This was a bit rustic for my wife's liking, but it was clean and more than adequate. Excellent if fending for yourself as far as food and beverage are concerned.
nuig school visit
We were there to visit the campus because my son is in his final year in high school. It is a good choice if your child will be living on the campus so they get an idea of what it will be like. If you are looking for the "hotel" experience rhis is probably not the best place.
great value for price
simple rooms, but excellent prices, and the free shuttle into Galway, just makes it an even better value,
When I saw "no frills," I went in with low expectations. They were met. I booked a room for a single bed and ended up with a full size bed, so that was a nice surprise. All I needed was internet access and a place to sleep, and I got both, so I was completely fine. However, if you're looking for something with amenities or something close to the pubs, this is not it.
great value, good service
The experience was great. Corrib Village is right next to the University and it has a complementary shuttle that runs into Downtown Galway several times each day. The rooms are about what you might expect for student housing, but they are clean and the staff brings new linens and towels every day. They were also very friendly and tolerant of stupid foreigner questions. Great value!
friendly helpful atmosphere
Corrib Village is a home away from home. After traveling for 2 days on multiple flights to get here, we were greeted by the nicest staff you could imagine. They are all so efficient, and as friendly as can be--truly dedicated to making our stay as comfortable as possible. Our room was clean, comfortable, and just a stone's throw away from the restaurant, which served up a palate satisfying breakfast with a choice of four types of cereal, 3 types of fruit, 3 types of bread for toasting, and 2 types of juices, along with steaming hot coffee. The beds were comfortable, the showers nice and hot, and there was room enough to spread out, along with good lighting to read travel brochures by. It was easy to book activities, like tours and shows through the front desk. All in all, Corrib Village was a place I hated to leave, so at home did they make us feel.
Corrib Village was a 10 to 15 minute walk from town and also easy to get to by bus. The room was adequate and since it is part of a dorm, you could also use the kitchen amenities and tv room. I recommend this place to people that will be spending most of their time exploring and not their room.
