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 Burren National Park and Aillwee Cave. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Salthill Beaches, get outside with Wild Atlantic Way, make a trip to Quay Street, and get to know the fascinating history of Salthill Promenade.
