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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Galway: Burren National Park (in Corofin), Liscannor (Moher Hill Open Farm and Leisure Park & Cliffs of Moher) and Bunratty Castle & Folk Park (in Bunratty). There's lots more to do: explore the striking landscape of Connemara National Park, get to know the fascinating history of Salthill Promenade, take a memorable drive along Wild Atlantic Way, and don't miss a visit to Quay Street.

To find reviews, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Galway travel planner.

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airports are Dublin Airport, Shannon Airport and Cork Airport. Expect a daytime high around 22°C in August, and nighttime lows around 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
