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.
Visiting Lahinch Beach and Burren Birds of Prey Centre will get you outdoors. Do some cultural sightseeing at Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and Kylemore Abbey & Victorian Walled Garden. Change things up with these side-trips from Galway: Hazel Mountain Chocolates (in Bell Harbour), Cliffs of Moher (in Liscannor) and Burren Perfumery (in Carran). There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape of Connemara National Park, look for gifts at Charlie Byrne's Bookshop, admire the masterpieces at Galway Arts Centre, and tee off at Dromoland Castle.

For traveler tips, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Galway travel itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Dublin Airport, Shannon Airport and Cork Airport. Expect a daytime high around 58°F in October, and nighttime lows around 47°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
