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.
You've now added Tobernalt Holy Well to your itinerary. Poulnabrone Dolmen and Tyrone House will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at National Museum of Ireland - Country Life and Royal Abbey of Cong. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Galway: Dunguaire Castle (in Kinvara), Ashford Castle (in Cong), Aillwee Cave (in Ballyvaughan) and Kayaking & Canoeing (in Westport). There's more to do: appreciate the history behind Galway City Museum.
