About Galway

Capital City of the West of Ireland

Galway City is the Capital City of the West of Ireland - a vibrant city full of culture and home of the Arts. The City is famed for its many festivals, the promenade and beach at Salthill, museums, galleries and of course that all important shopping. In the evenings the city comes alive with music and song and the buzz of Quay Street and the Spanish Arch are an attraction in itself.

The city of Tribes is host to the annual Summer Galway Races, an event which is famous the world over for an atmosphere that will take your breath away. The Galway Arts Festival brings together music, literature, art and theatre and an incredible visual spectacle that thrills thousands year after year. The two Oyster Festivals are social events of the season, the Galway International Oyster Festival and the Clarenbridge Oyster Festival.

County Galway is full of scenic beauty that is unique to our region. Connemara is celebrated for it’s wild and rugged beauty and has plenty to entertain it’s visitors. Kylemore Abbey is home to an order of Benedictine nuns and the abbey is set by the shores of a lake where you can walk along the peaceful Victorian walled gardens before having lunch in the café.

There is so much to do in Galway you will want to come back again and again - visit the Oceans Alive Sealife Centre, take a trip on a Galway Hooker around Galway Bay, visit Glengowla Mines or have a night out at the Greyhound Racing Track, That’s Galway vibrant, fun and never ever predictable.
