The building incorporates unique historic structures, including a portion of the Galway to Clifden railway tunnel built in the 1890s, and a two-storey stone building originally built in the 1830s. These unique features have been meticulously restored and incorporated into the design of this brand-new cool place. Our incredible location makes us the perfect place to stay on your next Galway Break, Staycation, Girly Weekend or Romantic Getaway.
