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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Salthill Beaches and Lahinch Beach. Your inner history buff will appreciate Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and Corcomroe Abbey. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Galway: Fanore Beach (in Fanore), Ennis (Seoidin & Sceal Eile Books) and Burren Birds of Prey Centre (in Ballyvaughan). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Mulranny Strand, stop by The Celtic T Shirt Shop, tour the pleasant surroundings at Silver Strand, and take in the dramatic natural features at Cliffs of Moher.
