With so much to see, it’s worth joining a walking tour in the city to learn about the main attractions from the experts. Make sure you check out Galway City Museum, which contain countless excellent exhibitions spanning as far back as the area’s prehistoric past. Not far away is the Spanish Arch, an extension of the city wall dating back to 1580, while the St. Nicholas' Collegiate Church and Lynch's Castle are both excellent examples of Galway’s medieval architecture.
Even outside Galway there’s plenty to see. Visit Kylemore Abbey with its magnificent gardens, or perhaps take a day-trip to the pretty town of Clifden. A 30-minute drive from Galway is the fabled Dunguaire Castle, a 16th Century tower house name after the legendary King of Connacht.
When it comes to nightlife, only a few cities in the country can compete with Galway. Once the evening hits you will be spoiled for choice by the countless jazz bars, pubs, theatres, comedy clubs and other entertainment venues that crowd the city street.
If you can, it’s worth booking your holiday to Galway during one of the many events that run throughout the year. In summer, there’s the Galway Races, Galway Cathedral Recitals and the Galway Arts Festival, to name but a few. Then the foodies come out to play for the Oyster Festival in September.
Thanks to the Gulf Stream on the north Atlantic coast, Galway maintains a pretty continuous mild climate. In winter, the average temperature is a balmy 9°C, while the summer months (when most tourists come) offer a pretty pleasing average of 19°C. Who said Ireland was cold and wet?

Staff were very friendly and rooms were very clean. Central location. Would stay here again
I liked the convenient location and friendly, helpful staff. The room was clean and bright. The bed was too small and did not make for a good nights sleep. The manger responded to my concerns and gave me a box of chocolates and offered a free upgrade to a room with a larger bed. I think king size ...
Great location if you have a car. Great food at a reasonable price in the restaurant. Decent, if a little dated pool (but make sure to pre-book a session during Covid). Friendly and helpful staff. Borrowed a fan when the room was too muggy - no problem. Would recommend if you’re driving as car parking ...
