For the price, this is amazing! When in Galway we always stay here! The rooms and beds are clean, there is a nice kitchen/living room so we make our own breakfast/dinner. We have stayed here at least 6-7 times.

Please believe the bad reviews of this place. Its too far out from the city or the seaside. There is nothing for kids to do here. No facilities unless you call a small green area at the carpark one. But then you have to watch your kids with the traffic. Its way over priced. Staff have no or very little...

I'm sorry to say that Dunaras Village was not what we expected. It was much farther from the center of Galway than advertised and the accommodations were not the best. The room and grounds were clean enough but there was a very strong smell of mold and dampness. We told the staff members about this smell and they told us...

We found Dunaras to be too out of the way of Galway Centre and the public transportation was not always reliable. The staff were not very helpful and somewhat rude. There is black mold in many areas , which staff told us about, but we had already checked in.

The village wasn't the cleanest. The staff are RUDE and treat you like you are in a jail. They charge you for everything from trash to the OUTSIDE PARKING LOT lighting, rip you off on deposits. Send your deposit to a NYC bank (if in USA) instead of to your bank directly, so you have to pay Dunaras' bank Fees...
