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.
Royal Abbey of Cong and Caherconnell Stone Fort will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Lahinch Beach and Turoe Pet Farm and Leisure Park. Explore Galway's surroundings by going to Spiddal (Spiddal Craft & Design Studios & Standun), Joyce Country Sheepdogs (in Shanafaraghaun) and Hag's Head (in Liscannor). There's more to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports and enjoy the sand and surf at Salthill Beaches.
