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.
Kick off your visit on the 10th (Mon): kick back and relax at Salthill Beaches and then cruise along Wild Atlantic Way.

To see photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Galway trip generator.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from Wylie, USA to Galway. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Wylie to Galway due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Wylie in July, expect nights in Galway to be slightly colder, around 54°F, while days are much colder, around 66°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Mon) so you can go by car to Westport.
