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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Bunratty Castle and Salthill Promenade. Escape the urban bustle at Burren National Park and Connemara National Park. Venture out of the city with trips to King John's Castle (in Limerick), Kylemore Abbey & Victorian Walled Garden (in Kylemore) and Liscannor (Cliffs of Moher & Moher Hill Open Farm and Leisure Park). There's lots more to do: make a trip to Sky Rd, explore the historical opulence of Ashford Castle, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Salthill Beaches.

To find ratings, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Galway holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Dublin Airport, Shannon Airport and Cork Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 22°C, and evening lows to 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
