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.
Visit Bunratty Castle and Folk Park and King John's Castle for their historical value. Kylemore Abbey & Victorian Walled Garden and Ashford Castle are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Galway: Dromoland Castle Golf Club (in Newmarket-on-Fergus), Cliffs of Moher (in Liscannor), Dunguaire Castle (in Kinvara), The Great Western Greenway (in Westport) and Aillwee Cave (in Ballyvaughan). Spend the 21st (Tue) among the memorable landscape of The Burren. The adventure continues: get to know the fascinating history of Salthill Promenade, contemplate the long history of Moyne Abbey, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Connemara National Park, and make a trip to Quay Street.
