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.
Change things up with a short trip to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park in Bunratty (about 1:30 hours away). There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape of Connemara National Park, don't miss a visit to Quay Street, cruise along Wild Atlantic Way, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Salthill Promenade.
