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 The Burren. Go for a jaunt from Galway to Ballyvaughan to see Aillwee Cave about 1:10 hours away. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Quay Street, stroll through Eyre Square, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Salthill Promenade.

To see reviews, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Galway 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 47°F, and evening lows to 38°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
