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 Lahinch Beach and Salthill Beaches. Your inner history buff will appreciate Clonmacnoise and Dromoland Castle Golf Club. Get out of town with these interesting Galway side-trips: Adare Heritage Centre (in Adare), Mulranny Strand (in Mulranny), Town and Country Interiors Athleague (in Athleague), Clifden (O`Dalaigh Jewellers & Connemara Blue), Kayaking & Canoeing (in Westport), Ashford Castle (in Cong), Renvyle Beach (in Renvyle), Dunguaire Castle (in Kinvara), Burren Perfumery (in Carron), Ballybunion Golf Club (in Ballybunion), Cottage Handcrafts (in Moyard) and Rathcroghan Royal Site (in Tulsk). There's much more to do: cruise along Wild Atlantic Way, look for gifts at OMG @ Zhivago, steep yourself in history at Poulnabrone Dolmen, and stroll through Eyre Square.
