City of the Tribes

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Ballyvaughan (Burren Birds of Prey Centre & Aillwee Cave), Bunratty Castle & Folk Park (in Bunratty) and Cliffs of Moher (in Liscannor). Spend the 28th (Fri) among the memorable landscape of The Burren. There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape of Connemara National Park & Visitor Centre, appreciate the extensive heritage of Salthill Promenade, admire the landmark architecture of Galway Cathedral, and don't miss a visit to Quay Street.

Start your trip to Galway by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

Zurich, Switzerland to Galway is an approximately 9.5-hour combination of flight and train. You can also do a combination of car and ferry; or take a bus. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Zurich to Galway due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Zurich in April, expect nights in Galway to be about the same, around 3°C, while days are little chillier, around 12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Mon) to allow time to drive to Clifden.
