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.
Change things up with a short trip to Bunratty Castle & Folk Park in Bunratty (about 1h 25 min away). There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape of Connemara National Park, get to know the fascinating history of Salthill Promenade, cruise along Wild Atlantic Way Day Tours, and make a trip to Quay Street.

For other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Galway travel planner.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are Dublin Airport, Shannon Airport and Cork Airport. Expect a daytime high around 17°C in October, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
