Galway Daily news NUIG campus tourist accommodation

NUIG campus bedrooms, which are let out to tourists during the summer, have been accredited as ‘Approved Tourist Accommodation’ under Fáilte Ireland’s Welcome Standard Programme.

Over 22,000 visitors make use of campus bedrooms at NUIG for tourist accommodation each year through the company Campus Living.

This company also recently received the Fáilte Ireland Customer Service Excellence award.

Karl Reinhardt, General Manager at Campus Living said “We are delighted to receive both Fáilte Ireland’s Service Excellence Award and accreditation to the Welcome Standard.

“These awards recognise our ongoing commitment to providing our guests with a positive, genuine and memorable experience.”

“Whether it’s a family or friends looking to experience the wonderful city of Galway or explore the Wild Atlantic Way, staying at Corrib Village in one of Ireland’s most attractive University campuses is a fantastic option, and it is great to be recognised for this.”

Corrib Village is located at the north end of the NUI Galway campus in Dangan, next to the river.

The purpose built accommodation is located within multiple attractions at NUIG including museums, several art galleries and a campus biodiversity trail.

These attractions are part of the reason why NUIG was recently shortlisted as ‘A Great Visitor Experience’ by InflightFlix International.

The emphasis of the Fáilte Ireland Welcome Standard Quality Assurance Programme places particular focus on the customer journey – meeting customer expectations and the quality of the overall experience.

Over 8,000 campus accommodation bedrooms around Ireland received their seal of approval after a recent assessment.

Campus Living offers summer rooms and self-catering apartments, ideal for individuals or groups looking to explore the West of Ireland.
