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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Michael Davitt Museum and Spiddal Craft & Design Studios. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Fanore Beach and Joyce Country Sheepdogs. Explore Galway's surroundings by going to Gort (Kilmacduagh Tower & Coole Park), Loughwell Farm Park (in Moycullen) and Quin Abbey (in Quin). Next up on the itinerary: head outdoors with Dromoland Castle, get engrossed in the history at Hennigan's Heritage Centre, get to know the fascinating history of Riverside Walk, and contemplate the long history of Monk's Fishing House.

Discover how to plan a Galway trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Dublin Airport, Shannon Airport and Cork Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 43°F, and evening lows to 36°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
