Explore Glorious Galway

A lively and cultural city, Galway is a must-visit when on the West Coast. With a love of music and festivals (Galway Arts Festival, The Galway Races and Galway Film Festival to name but a few), experience an atmosphere like no other as you wander through its streets where there is fun to be found at every corner! Or go further afield into the wilds of County Galway, Connemara and Lough Corrib.

There is a feel about Galway you can wear around your shoulders like a cloak
