  • Scientist for a Day... in the Kitchen Ta Boot! Thanks for the great idea. Since they took away home economics, PlaySchool Academy here in our District is developing a plan close to the same concept.
  • When you're leaving the cathedral you might as well keep exploring that end and head on over to NUIG. The campus is gorgeous. I love wandering around university grounds and this place is great. You'll feel like you're in Harry Potter for a bit!
  • Great campus locate beside the River Corrib. Lots of place to eat and easy to get around on foot or by bicycle. They have spent a lot of time and effort renovating the campus over the last 15 years
  • Stunning campus, easy to navigate, modern new buildings being added really enhance the place.
  • Best place to learn, ever. Great professors, great city and ... Great craic! :)

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.
