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.
Take a break from Galway with a short trip to Bunratty Castle in Bunratty, about 1h 30 min away. There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape of Connemara National Park, appreciate the extensive heritage of Salthill Promenade, make a trip to Quay Street, and take a memorable drive along Wild Atlantic Way.
