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.
Michael Davitt Museum and Galway City Museum will appeal to museum buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Scuba & Snorkeling and Rathcroghan Royal Site. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Galway: Burren National Park (in Corofin), Coole Park (in Gort) and Caherconnell Stone Fort (in Caherconnell). Spend the 13th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Salthill Beaches, contemplate the long history of Cong Abbey, explore the striking landscape at Cliffs of Moher, and step into the grandiose world of Aughnanure Castle.

For photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Galway vacation planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Dublin Airport, Shannon Airport and Cork Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 66°F, and evening lows to 54°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
