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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Kayaking & Canoeing and Room Escape Games. Explore Galway's surroundings by going to Royal Abbey of Cong (in Cong), Rathcroghan Royal Site (in Tulsk) and Derryglad Folk & Heritage Museum (in Athlone). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Cliffs of Moher and play a few rounds at Dromoland Castle.

For traveler tips, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Galway vacation builder site .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airports are Dublin Airport, Shannon Airport and Cork Airport. In October in Galway, expect temperatures between 14°C during the day and 7°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
