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.
Step out of the city life by going to Burren Birds of Prey Centre and The Lost Valley. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and Poulnabrone Dolmen. Get out of town with these interesting Galway side-trips: Aillwee Cave (in Ballyvaughan), The Cong Heritage Trail (in Cong) and Burren National Park (in Corofin). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Cliffs of Moher, pause for some serene contemplation at Ballintubber Abbey, admire the landmark architecture of Galway Cathedral, and contemplate the long history of Gleninsheen Wedge Tomb.

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airports are Dublin Airport, Shannon Airport and Cork Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 12°C, and evening lows to 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
