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 National Museum of Ireland - Country Life and Galway Bay. Change things up with these side-trips from Galway: Burren Birds of Prey Centre (in Ballyvaughan), Lough Key Forest Park (in Boyle) and Royal Abbey of Cong (in Cong). And it doesn't end there: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Croagh Patrick, steep yourself in history at Poulnabrone Dolmen, explore the historical opulence of Bunratty Castle & Folk Park, and browse the exhibits of Galway City Museum.

To find more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Galway tour planning tool .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airports are Dublin Airport, Shannon Airport and Cork Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 12°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
