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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and Salthill Promenade. Step out of the city life by going to Cliffs of Moher and Aillwee Cave. When in Galway, make a side trip to see Burren National Park in Corofin, approximately 54 minutes away. On the 7th (Wed), spend a cool day on the water with Charter Ireland.
