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.

    Great Location

    I love Galway way more then Dublin. This had the small town feel, but was still a city. Everyone was so helpfuldn it was not a tourist trap.

    Galway, Ireland

    Really pretty since its near the coast. Galway bay is a must-see. Good place to laze around and spend time with loved ones. You can have picnic there, have a stroll in the evening and watch the sunset. Really peaceful and calming.

    Galway is Great

    I extended my stay in Galway because I didn't want to leave. The atmosphere is fantastic. The scenery is outstanding if you venture across the bridge towards Salthill. I never felt unsafe in Galway when I was out by myself regardless of the time of day or night. Although it is a small city, it has a lot to offer and is oozing with character and charm.

    just one pint

    One drink will lead to many, lots of bars and live music to enjoy. Easy to find the main street for shopping and your drinks. Nice views all round the town.

    Insider Tip:Kings Head for your first pint
