Things to do in Galway
Beyond The Gates
Whilst within the cast iron gates lay an abundance of adventures and activities, beyond them lays Connemara, the Aran Islands and Galway City, home to some of Irelands' most delightful wonders. From National parks and castles to ruins and the sea, not to mention the rich culture and events and festivals, the City of Tribes has become renowned for.
The rugged Connemara landscape is the idyllic setting for outdoor adventuring of all kinds, from hiking the 12 Bens, cycling along Galways greenway to river cruises along Lough Corrib or island hopping at Aran, there is so much to see and do, Galway will have even the most adventurous soul mesmorised by the vast array of activities that await.
The coastline of Galway is the largest of that along the Wild Atlantic Way, and Galways' Bay is famous for more than just its rich fishing history but some of the most beautiful beaches in Ireland, most notably the infamous Dogs Bay and Gurteen Bay. If beaches or activities are not your thing, then the bustling festivals, thriving traditional music, arts and culture in the heart of the City alongside its many native experiences and unique food and craft markets will surely ignite your love for this Western County full of spirit and joy.
