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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Nature & Wildlife Tours and Burren Birds of Prey Centre. Get out of town with these interesting Galway side-trips: National Museum of Ireland - Country Life (in Castlebar) and Dunguaire Castle (in Kinvara). There's lots more to do: stroll through Croagh Patrick, explore the activities along Galway Bay, pause for some photo ops at Galway City Museum, and contemplate the long history of Poulnabrone Dolmen.

To see reviews, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Galway trip planner.

If you are flying in from Austria, the closest major airports are Dublin Airport, Shannon Airport and Cork Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 17°C, and evening lows to 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
