Inis Aoibhinn

During Your Stay

Along with providing residents with ‘home from home’ accommodation during their stay at Inis Aoibhinn we also like to provide a little entertainment every now and then. This is a great way for residents to get to know each other and have some craic! Residents often stay at Inis Aoibhinn for 4-6 weeks and our entertainment evenings can be a great highlight of the week, bringing those who are staying with us together in a relaxed fun social setting.

Inis Aoibhinn is located a short distance from Galway city centre and from the promenade at Salthill. With its great mix of festivals and events, there is always something interesting going on in Galway and our staff will be happy to have a chat about things to do during your stay.
