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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Clonmacnoise and Galway Bay. Get some historical perspective at Bunratty Castle and Folk Park and Salthill Promenade. Spend the 17th (Tue) among the memorable landscape of The Burren. There's lots more to do: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Connemara National Park, explore the ancient world of Mooghaun Hill Fort, head outdoors with Wild Atlantic Way, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Corcomroe Abbey.
