Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Get a closer look at marine life at Galway Atlantaquaria, where interactive exhibits allow visitors to touch the tank's occupants. Walk under the bones of the giant fin whale and visit the strange bottom feeders in their tanks. The viewing window for the ocean tank glows blue and teems with life, and the ray pool allows you to slide your fingers across the creature's slick back. The aquarium is near the beach and makes a nice stopping point on a city tour. Simply purchase your tickets when you arrive. Put Galway Atlantaquaria and other Galway attractions into our Galway vacation route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • So if you need to go somewhere when it is raining this out is the perfect day out, it's well worth the visit  more »
  • Visited here on a wet day in Galway. It's reasonably priced for a family of 4 and a good way to spend an hour Quite a few species on display and some local facts etc  more »
  • I brought the family along and while the kids enjoyed the trip the facility is a bit small to keep you entertained. We were a little disappointing how quickly we managed to see everything.  more »

Where to stay in Galway

Stay at the center of Ireland's "Most Irish City," Galway City, by booking a hotel or hostel near Eyre Square, from which all city sights are walkable. If you prefer accommodation with more character, stay at a charming guesthouse or bed and breakfast just outside of the center, or look for lodging in the city's Latin Quarter, a bohemian neighborhood lined with cafes, galleries, and pubs. If you want to explore Galway County, book accommodations in the city, since it's a tourism and transportation hub on the West Coast. If you prefer the quiet countryside, seek out small, family-owned guesthouses on the Aran Islands or a cottage on the Connemara Peninsula.
