Images Of Galway

Considered by many to be the Cultural Capital of Ireland, Galway is the place to visit to experience Irish culture at its best. The city is on the verge of the 'Gaeltacht' region, where Irish is the language of choice amongst locals, and here you'll find the Ireland you know from the postcards. Then in its pubs you can listen to traditional Irish musicians playing their 'bodhrans' and other traditional Irish instruments. It is Ireland's most vibrant city, and this is only added to by the constant flow of festivals taking place throughout the year.

    Lovely city with a town-like feel with colourful streets and warm people. Although there are not many things to do/see, it is worth a visit. It is an ideal location if you want to explore nearby areas of Ireland, such as the Cliffs of Moher, Connemara, and the Aran Islands.

    Insider Tip:Free walking tour of Galway at 12 every day from Eyre Square.

    Galway is always so much fun, nearly always something on music / pub wise. Great atmosphere, lovely people, good shopping, lovely sights but it's not too big to get lost in. AMAZING night life!!

    Charming city

    Galway is very charming but feels very infiltrated by tourism. One big attraction here is the night life.

    Cute city

    Didn't actually spend toooo much time in the city, I mostly used it as a home base to visit the Cliffs of Moher and the Aran Islands.

    Insider Tip:Expect rain.
