Accommodation

 

The Irish History Students Association, 66th Annual Conference will take place in Galway, from 19-21 February 2016. As a major tourist location, Galway boasts both a considerable volume and diversity of accommodation sources.  The vast majority of these are within a two-mile radius of the University.  Prices and quality vary considerably, but as the conference is being held in February, it is envisaged that accommodation should be reasonable. Nonetheless, advance booking is essential. For groups travelling together there are a large number of student hostels in the city, which may suit your needs.

 

This list is intended as a starting point to help the attendee. We have broken down matters by the type of accommodation, then further by star-rating and price.  Web links are included throughout, as well as photographs, guide prices, reviews, maps and distance from the University and Bus/Train station.  Those travelling are advised to book early and to ‘shop around’ so as to secure good value and reasonable price where possible.

 

There may well be slightly cheaper options available, however many of these are of a less acceptable standard than we are willing to select for you, our guests. We have borne these considerations in mind, adding in cost and distance also, to give you the best information possible to make your choice.
