  • It's worth taking the time to explore the Galway riverside with its views of the Cathedral and back streets of the city. This was my partner's introduction to the city and helped her get orientated qu...  more »
  • Really enjoyed Galway's River walk - it was almost a case of 'water, water, everywhere', rushing on towards Galway Bay. It is an easy stroll with lots to draw your interest along the way. We followed ...  more »
  • The walk you can boot from the Spanish Gate but also in other places. Nice walk along a river with fishermen who catch salmon and we saw two seals in the River (also looking for salmon). Also take some time out to have a picnic to sit on benches or just on the grass. Do!

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.
