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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Galway: Bunratty Castle and Folk Park (in Bunratty) and Aillwee Cave (in Ballyvaughan). Spend the 3rd (Tue) among the memorable landscape of The Burren. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Quay Street, take in the spiritual surroundings of Corcomroe Abbey, tour the pleasant surroundings at Eyre Square, and admire the landmark architecture of Galway Cathedral.
