  • We stumbled upon this hall more than anything, but we were really glad we did - it's free, and one of the people who worked there came and gave us a tour of the site. It is a small site, but the tour ...  more »
  • Not a massive site but probably worth a visit nonetheless. Like having a nosey at this type of thing trying to image what things were like for the people back in the day. No doubt it was grim but they...  more »
  • Medieval remains under a recent building. Interesting to see. As it is right next to the central street and it's free. A quick visit is required.

  • There're a lot of information and sometimes there's someone than can guide you. It's all for free. The site is covered to be protected. They're just ruins, but it's a cool and we'll preserved place.
  • Such an interesting place!!! Just try to visit on a culture day and you get a free tour!

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.
