City of the Tribes

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.
Kilmacduagh Tower and Quin Abbey will appeal to history buffs. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Joyce Country Sheepdogs and Ballintubber Abbey. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Galway: Spiddal Craft & Design Studios (in Spiddal), Dromoland Castle (in Newmarket-on-Fergus) and Fanore Beach (in Fanore). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Michael Davitt Museum, appreciate the extensive heritage of Riverside Walk, experience rural life at Loughwell Farm Park, and get engrossed in the history at Hennigan's Heritage Centre.
