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.
Take a break from the city and head to Connemara National Park and Burren National Park. Get some cultural insight at Bunratty Castle and Salthill Promenade. Change things up with a short trip to Aillwee Cave in Ballyvaughan (about 1h 10 min away). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Galway Cathedral and don't miss a visit to Eyre Square.
