Welcome to Galway
Galway is a city in west Ireland that sits right on the coast, just south of Lough Corrib. It is a popular destination for domestic and international tourists. Attractions include Galway’s grand cathedral, the Latin quarter and the famous Spanish Arch that once extended from the medieval city walls and the pastel-coloured houses that line Galway’s harbour. As well as having plenty of charming historical sights, Galway is famous for its lively music scene. From traditional Irish music to gigs at The Crane Bar to the contemporary buskers that pop up on its streets, Galway is a music lover’s paradise. Galway’s nearest airport is in Shannon, around 90km south of the city. However, the city itself is well connected by road and public transport, with regular services taking passengers all across the wide province of Connacht. Hiring a car is wise, though, if you want to venture down to see the Cliffs of Moher.

Frequently Asked Questions
When to go to Galway?
Galway’s dramatic coastline and intriguing city sights are best enjoyed during the warmer months, so plan your trip between late June and September. Irish winters are chilly or drizzly, and Galway is known for being a rainy city, so a summertime visit will let you experience Galway at its temperate best.If you want pleasant weather, but don’t want the crowds of peak summer holiday season, opt for a break in May or September. You’re likely to have warm days and less rain than in winter, although packing a raincoat and umbrella are always wise when visiting the unpredictable Irish coast.
