    Fabio Bonacina says:

    Enjoy pubs and people in the pubs!

    Cations Dels Esteva says:

    Walk... drink... talk to nice Galway people... and start again. Love Galway!



    Explore the nightlife

    Go to the 'King's Head' for a couple of drinks, live music and some cool Irish dancing!

    Go to the more alternative west side of the city, there are some lovely pubs to enjoy a pint of Guinness and live music.

    Nic Hughes says:

    Go to ‘Supermacs’ on the way home from the club at 4am - best and funniest part of my night in Galway by far!

    Bianca Maria Timmer says:

    Kings Head - lovely pub with great music.

    Paul Cassidy says:

    Take a day trip to some great attractions nearby

    Take the ferry to the Aran Islands!

    Marilyn Badger says:

    Take a trip along ‘The Sky Road’, the views across the Atlantic are awesome!

    Vicky Martin says:

    I can´t explain how happy I was there. The best experience I had in all my life. Connemara and Cliffs of Moher just the best place in Ireland. I´m from Argentina and now I know where I want to die. I love Ireland so much.

    Priscila Chwat says:

    See the sunset at the Cliffs of Moher!



    Pay a visit to the coast

    Kalen Michael Viljoen says:

    Visit Salthill.

    Michael Towers says:

    Windsurfing in Knocknacarra and having a pint afterwards in any on the wonderful pubs in town! I love Galway!



    Explore Connemara

    Thijs Haster says:

    Make a trip to Connemara for sure.

    Destiny Grose says:

    Trip to Connemara.



    Plan when you visit

    Kevin McGillick says:

    Book in advance or inform yourself of the goings-on at the time of your visit. A spontaneous trip to the city may land you in the centre of a colossal arts festival or International boat race (in my case both)!



    Indulge in some shopping

    Carisa Monzon says:

    The shopping is amazing there! Definitely visit River Island and treat yourself to some jeans.

    Monika King says:

    Buy an original Claddagh ring there!



    Check out the local press for tips

    Eanna Byrne says:

    Get your hands on the Galway Advertiser newspaper. It's free and will tell you all that is happening in entertainment. Or get it online before you arrive.



    Buy some books

    Shane Heneghan says:

    Charlie Byrne's Bookshop- the best in the country.

    Chanseok Park says:

    Visit old bookshop! I forgot the name of bookshop but it’s quite nice. You can see many things that famous authors visit there and they did autograph!



    Check out some local eateries

    Niamh Fox says:

    Go to Ard Bia cafe and restaurant! It's amazing!

    Shane Heneghan says:

    McDonagh's fish and chips.
