It is a popular seaside destination famous for... more its long winding promenade; you will love the Labyrinth Cobble streets with beautiful colorful shops. The city draws a huge Crowd because of its festivals, The Galway arts festival being the famous one.

Overall Guide : If you look for vitality, it’s better to go during University period: city is full of people and it’s vibrant. Anytime all the year along, in this city are organized festival and concerts. Among the manies are: the Arts festival... more in July, the six days long Galway Festival Race Meeting, at the end of July and the Oyster Festival from September to October. The attraction is the zone of the port: you can make a ship tour, visiting what sea-zone offers: secret coves, golden shores and beautiful sunsets. Most of the pubs have a music session which help to make the evening a beautiful and, why not, unique experience. The city comprises four theatres: one performs in Gaelic. It’s the centre of the world famous Macnas Street. Theatre.

Overall Guide : Galway is a very nice city. If you ever go there look around. Galway was named after Princess Gaillimh. Galway has lots of shops. It has a Volvo Ocean Race every year. It also has an art competition. Galway is... more wellknown for its atractions. You can find more about Galway in a tourist office. Be proud of yourself if you are a Galwanian. By the way, I am from Galway and I am proud of it.

Overall Guide : love heading to the west. the town can be as busy or as peaceful as you want. if in the mood for craic, just head to the city centre. in need of peace and quiet? walk by the sea, or... more travel a mile or two inland to the country. heaven no matter which you choose.
