Create an itinerary including Galway Bay
Walk along the beaches of Galway Bay, one of the area's most picturesque spots just southwest of the city. You may recognize the name from a John Lennon tune--he is only one of many that have sung about this bay. Walk along the beaches, and if you catch them on a dry day, sit and enjoy the swans swimming in the area. Nearby is the Long Walk, a row of colourful houses that line the water. Cap off your time here with a pint of Guinness at a nearby pub, or hang around for nightlife if you're in the mood.

  • Galway has changed a lot,  and long gone is the Galway I knew 20 years ago. The port area, Spanish Arch and all up to Salthill especially, is nothing but a carpark... even as you travel out past...
