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.
Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and Kylemore Abbey & Victorian Walled Garden are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Take a break from the city and head to Cliffs of Moher and The Burren. Venture out of the city with trips to Cong (Cong Abbey, Pigeon Hole Cave, & more), Doolin Cave (in Doolin) and Burren National Park (in Corofin). Next up on the itinerary: explore the landscape on two wheels at The Great Western Greenway, explore the fascinating underground world of Aillwee Cave, take a memorable drive along Wild Atlantic Way Day Tours, and identify plant and animal life at Burren Birds of Prey Centre.
