Along with being a popular seaside destination with beautiful beaches and a long promenade, Galway also has a buzzing cosmopolitan city centre that is a delight to explore.

Known as the ‘city of tribes’, Galway is one of Ireland’s oldest cities, located on the rugged western coast. A thriving, cultural city which along with being a popular seaside destination with beautiful beaches and a long promenade, it also has a buzzing cosmopolitan city centre that is a delight to explore with its old cobbled streets and ‘olde-worlde’ atmosphere. It is also the gateway to Connemara, a wild and dramatic region that is regarded as the real emerald of Ireland.
