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.
Quin Abbey and Ballintubber Abbey will appeal to history buffs. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Joyce Country Sheepdogs and Fanore Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Galway: Dromoland Castle (in Newmarket-on-Fergus), Spiddal Craft & Design Studios (in Spiddal) and Gort (Kilmacduagh Tower & Coole Park Nature Reserve). 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.
