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.

  • So quick too get to ballybane
  • Been in Galway from long time but never visited the wood, one of the even gave me opportunity to visit the woods and loved it. Very nice cycling track and walking track and very quite environment. You can see many spices of birds as well.
  • A diverse woodland habitat with many species of wildlife such as red squirrels , butterflies , orchids also many historic features within the trails and walkways .A great place for cycling, family walks and to escape the noise and pollution of traffic . It is the largest an oldest urban woodland within Galway city boundary , located on the Eastside of the city , access to parking is in Doughiska in the Merlin Woods City Park and Merlin Lane. Wheelchair access also available at these locations
  • Beautiful forest with a few ruins taken in the Ivy or trees. I am a lot like m walk.
