Westwood Student Accommodation

In September 2018 An Bord Pleanála approved planning permission for the development of a strategic housing development at the site of the existing Westwood Hotel in Galway City.

The development consisted of the demolition of the former Westwood Hotel and redevelopment of the site for a 12,112sqm student accommodation scheme of 63 apartments with 394 bedrooms, together with all ancillary facilities, arranged in 5 no. blocks which vary in height from 3 to 5 storeys. A café and convenience store are provided on the ground floor of Block A adjacent Upper Newcastle Road.

The development provides a high quality, professionally managed student accommodation and ancillary accommodation to serve the existing and future needs of the City’s university population.
