  • Went during SeaFest 2017. Had a great day!
  • Interesting 🌝
  • One of Galway's picturesque areas!
  • A dreamy little port, still a small manageable city, many tourists, beautiful small pubs, a large Mool right in the Centre, a beautiful pedestrian zone. We liked it!

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.
