Thank You!

It all seems to be back to normal here at the NUI Galway RadioSoc Towers. The National Student Radio Conference which took place last weekend was a major success! After the fierce pressure on the day, it all paid off! We all had a ball at the conference and found it extremely beneficial to meet both people in the industry and in the same position as us. I learned a lot from the experience and I am sure it is fair to say everyone enjoyed themselves. I hope you had a ball too!

It could not have done it without everyone’s help. We would especially like to say thank you to all our sponsors, speakers and volunteers.

CRAOL, The Societies Office, Conference Office, Flirt FM, NUI Galway Students’ Union and NUI Galway Information Solutions and Services helped us a lot in making the event possible.

In particular, we would like to express a huge thanks to Standard Printers for being extremely helpful and generous with sourcing printing materials.

Welcome to the National Student Radio Conference 2015!

The National Student Radio Conference is alive and well!

We have just finished emailing all the Guests and Visitors, but if you didn’t receive it, hopefully the following will help.

Accommodation information


The bus and train stations in Galway are approximately 1km from the University, and it should take 10-15 minutes to get there on foot.

A quick Google for hostels throws up lots of results in Galway City Centre – there should be no need for trekking to somewhere kilometres away. Expect to pay from €20 for a bed in a dorm – but do book as soon as you know you’re coming to the conference, as Galway is a tourist destination at the weekend  – even outside the summer!

Another option may be trying a B&B in the area – they do reasonable rates too, and there’s lots of modern and stylish options in town. If you want a cracking view, you can travel a little further to Salthill, it’s absolutely beautiful, but still within walking distance of NUI Galway.
