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.
Appreciate the collections at Derryglad Folk and Heritage Museum and Michael Davitt Museum. Royal Abbey of Cong and Rathcroghan Royal Site & Visitor Centre will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Galway side-trips: Aughnanure Castle (in Oughterard), Kilkee Cliff Walk (in Kilkee) and Joyce Country Sheepdogs (in Shanafaraghaun). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Riverside Walk, look for gifts at Foxford Woollen Mills & Visitor Centre, enjoy the sand and surf at Salthill Beaches, and explore the historical opulence of Roscommon Castle.
