10/10 Exceptional

We stayed at the nest for one night in the private accommodations. The small fridge was appreciated and I had possibly the best shower of my life. Our room was comfortable and quiet. Despite being street facing on the ground floor noise was not an issue and we had a fantastic night's sleep after enjoying an evening in Galway. Eat near the Nest and then walk downtown for a great party!
