Galway— 3 nights
City of the Tribes
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.Your cultural itinerary includes sights like National Museum of Ireland - Country Life and King John's Castle. Let the collections at Galway City Museum and Michael Davitt Museum capture your imagination. Change things up with these side-trips from Galway: Dromoland Castle (in Newmarket-on-Fergus), Foxford Woollen Mills & Visitor Centre (in Foxford) and Burren Perfumery (in Carran). There's lots more to do: cruise along Wild Atlantic Way, don't miss a visit to Eyre Square, and enjoy the sand and surf at Salthill Beaches.
Plan my Galway trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Dublin Airport, Shannon Airport and Cork Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Galway can reach 19°C, while at night they dip to 12°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
