About The Westwood

Casita offers multiple choices for student housing in Galway; each option is carefully placed at walking distance of universities, unique hangout spots or parks. The Website provides numerous room types and buildings to match your requirements, budgets and preferences.

The Westwood building by Mezzino offers various en-suite rooms with different sizes and options. The building has many lovely areas and fun rooms, such as an outdoor area with a basketball court, a game area, a cinema room and a lounge. There’s an on-site SPAR with your favourite treats, a study area, an on-site laundry room and a gym. 

Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the building, in addition to ethernet pugs inside the individual rooms. The communal kitchens come fully equipped with all of your necessities in addition to two fridge-freezers, a microwave, an oven, and a grill. The Building has an on-site staff and 24-hour security through CCTV. All rooms come with large bathrooms and storage spaces. Rent prices are fixed and have a fixed utility bill.

The historic City of Galway falls on the river banks of river Corrib and the Atlantic Ocean. The City has a history all over it with charming old buildings and monuments as well as unique small shops and vitrines. A walk through the City’s cobbled streets is an absolute treat as you are greeted by the City’s rich culture, history, shops and amazing people. 

The City was built in the 12th century and was initially called “the city of tribes”. It was originally walled, and to this day, parts of those walls remain intact in the City. As proof of how the City has evolved as well as the mix of the old and the new, the Eyre square shopping centre hopping mall still contains part of the historic wall. Along with its monuments, nature is breathtaking, especially if you walk down River Corrib’s riverwalk. 

The building is right next to amazing destinations. At just an 11-minute walk, you’ll find yourself in front of the River Corrib and by the historical Menlo castle on its bank. The historical Martin Tea-House Folly house is a 13-minute walk away. Ten minutes by car, you’ll find yourself in the gorgeous City of Salthill, a beach town. For all your daily needs, Aldi is a six-minute drive away, and the Galway City Museum and the famous coffee shop Mocha beans are at a 12-minute drive. Newcastle park is a 12-minute drive away.

*€16.50 per week utility fee is applicable.

*Due to COVID-19, if a student is unable to start college due to a government-imposed travel ban, any deposit and rent paid will be refunded

** If the college start date is delayed, licence agreement start dates will be delayed accordingly allowing check-in just before college starts with rent only being charged from this new agreed start date. 

*** If any student needs to stay on a little longer than (15th of May / 29th of May), the tenancy will be extended with the same rate.
