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 National Shrine of Our Lady of Knock will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Galway side-trips: Kilkee Cliff Walk (in Kilkee), Joyce Country Sheepdogs (in Shanafaraghaun) and Aughnanure Castle (in Oughterard). Next up on the itinerary: add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, step into the grandiose world of Roscommon Castle, appreciate the extensive heritage of Riverside Walk, and cruise along Loop Head.
