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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Croagh Patrick and National Museum of Ireland - Country Life. Venture out of the city with trips to Burren National Park (in Corofin), Burren Birds of Prey Centre (in Ballyvaughan) and Ashford Castle (in Cong). Spend the 4th (Sat) among the memorable landscape of The Burren. The adventure continues: paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, kick back and relax at Salthill Beaches, steep yourself in history at Poulnabrone Dolmen, and get to know the fascinating history of Riverside Walk.
