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?
We found this room to be comfortable & clean. Nothing special inside, but the location can't be beat if you're planning to walk around Galway.
We really want to make special mention to the great customer service provided to us by Ciara in the restaurant. Her recommendations, friendliness and suggestions for what to see and do in Galway were just great. We thoroughly enjoyed our three course meal at the restaurant. Thanks very much Ciara. ...
Great location right across the street from the bay. Nice property with restaurant and pub. However, there were few other nearby choices for dining outside of the restaurant as well as everything closing early (by 9 PM) which included the hotel.
The Galmont is a beautiful hotel right on the water in the heart of Galway. It’s easy walking from the hotel to the nearby shops, restaurants and bars. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with everything you need. The lobby is beautifully decorated and there is a bar/restaurant on site that ...
Great location.... excellent staff... clean hotel.. just needs a facelift... looks to be stuck in the late 80’s early 90’s
It had a very comfortable and modern feel to it yet had a very rustic Irish vibe which I really enjoyed. The food was outstanding and there was a wide range of options on the menu. The bar was a great place to relax.
Room was very clean, air conditioning excellent and bed excellent so comfortable. Iron not good only criticism, staff very friendly service excellent. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.
