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.
Start off your visit on the 6th (Fri): explore the wealth of natural beauty at Connemara National Park. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the striking features of Galway Cathedral, then make a trip to Quay Street, then get to know the fascinating history of Salthill Promenade, and finally contemplate the waterfront views at Galway Bay.

To see photos, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Galway vacation builder.
