Where to stay in Galway

About Galway

Medieval remnants sit beside a bustling urban scene in Galway. This city is regarded as Ireland’s cultural heart, alive with vibrant festivities, shopkeepers selling handmade Claddagh rings and the sounds of traditional Irish music.

Things to do

Learn about the city’s rich history at the Galway City Museum. Browse informational exhibits showcasing Irish Independence, enjoy rotating displays by local artists and grab a bite to eat at The Kitchen. Don’t miss the iconic display of the Galway hooker fishing boat or the collection of traditional Irish boats called currachs.

For a scenic view of the surrounding countryside, plan a trip to Connemara National Park. Admire the rolling green landscape, tour the Victorian Walled Garden and hike to the summit of Diamond Hill. The Connemara loop takes you around Kylemore Abbey and a neo-gothic church, while the on-site Tea House pairs coffee with scenic mountain views.

Looming over the River Corrib, Galway Cathedral is a feast for the eyes. A beautiful exterior comprised of stonework and a magnificent green dome serves as the entryway to an exquisite interior with stained-glass windows, superb acoustics and a wooden ceiling.

Immerse yourself in local culture at Eyre Square, Galway’s central public gathering area. Stroll the extensive open green space, admire the Galway Hooker sculpture and check out the Browne Doorway, the remains of a merchant ruler’s home. If you’re lucky, you might catch a busker performance or some traditional Irish dancing.

Getting around

The easiest way to get around Galway is by bus. Galway’s primary railway station is Ceannt Station, offering passenger services to nearby cities. You can also get around by car, as the city is well connected by motorways.
