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.
Get out of town with these interesting Galway side-trips: Bunratty Castle & Folk Park (in Bunratty), Aillwee Cave (in Ballyvaughan) and Burren National Park (in Corofin). There's lots more to do: take a memorable drive along Wild Atlantic Way Day Tours, appreciate the extensive heritage of Salthill Promenade, look for gifts at Charlie Byrne's Bookshop, and admire the striking features of Galway Cathedral.
