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.
Step out of Galway to go to Bunratty and see Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, which is approximately 1:30 hours away. Spend the 30th (Fri) among the memorable landscape of The Burren. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Quay Street, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Galway Cathedral, appreciate the extensive heritage of Salthill Promenade, and stroll through Eyre Square.
