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.
Take a break from the city and head to Connemara National Park and Burren National Park. Get some cultural insight at Bunratty Castle and Salthill Promenade. Change things up with a short trip to Aillwee Cave in Ballyvaughan (about 1h 10 min away). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Galway Cathedral and don't miss a visit to Eyre Square.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Dublin Airport, Shannon Airport and Cork Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 60°F, and evening lows to 46°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
