About Galway, Ireland

Galway, the unofficial cultural capital of Ireland, is a walking city with cobblestone streets, pubs, shopping, art galleries, restaurants, and theater. Something for everyone!

  • Experience the culture and beauty of Galway with a guided walking tour or a unique Segway tour; for the more adventurous, there are helicopter tours of the breath taking landscape.
  • Witness the Cliffs of Moher and the wild beauty of Connemara on an afternoon tour.
  • Try your hand at Falconry on the grounds of Ashford Castle.
  • Enjoy an evening of traditional Irish music and step dancing at one of the many local pubs!

Outside of Galway City the wild and sparsely populated Connemara region offers spectacular scenery of valleys, mountains and lakes and unparalleled hill walking across the peaks of the Twelve Bens. The coast line is wrought into rocky inlets sheltering white sand beaches, and is studded with the beautiful Aran Islands that make for interesting day trips.

Nimmo's Pier - The Claddagh Basin is well-known for its large herd Swans, but it is probably for its gulls that Nimmo's Pier is visited by most bird watchers.

Aughnanure Castle, Oughterard. The castle is a well preserved example of an Irish Tower house.

Quay Street - The medieval street, has the main shopping areas, theatres, art galleries, pubs and restaurants.

Located west of Galway City, in large tracts of Connemara, is Ireland's largest Gaeltacht region. Here, the Irish language (Gaeilge or Gaelic) is the everyday spoken language of a people who live and work in Galway's cultural heartland. People here switch from Irish to English and vice-versa with ease and their English is peppered with Gaeilge phrases. This area is a treasure house of all that is best in rich Irish heritage, culture and folklore where people still sing and dance in the old traditional manner.
