Galway
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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Rathcroghan Royal Site and Kayaking & Canoeing. Do some cultural sightseeing at Royal Abbey of Cong and Coole Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Galway: Dromoland Castle Golf Club (in Newmarket-on-Fergus), Aughnanure Castle (in Oughterard) and Quin Abbey (in Quin). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Belleek Castle Museum, experience rural life at Killary Sheep Farm, and examine the collection at Michael Davitt Museum.

To find where to stay, photos, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Galway vacation builder.

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airports are Dublin Airport, Shannon Airport and Cork Airport. In April, daily temperatures in Galway can reach 15°C, while at night they dip to 6°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
