Galway

A major hub for visitors exploring Ireland's western regions, Galway serves as a city of art and culture, renowned for its vibrant lifestyle and numerous festivals.
Explore Galway's surroundings by going to King John's Castle (in Limerick), Ballyvaughan (Aillwee Cave, Burren Birds of Prey Centre, & more) and Dromoland Castle (in Newmarket-on-Fergus). Spend the 20th (Wed) among the memorable landscape of The Burren. There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape of Connemara National Park, take a memorable drive along Wild Atlantic Way, ride a horse along Drummindoo Stud, and explore the historical opulence of Bunratty Castle & Folk Park.
