  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Located on the West coast of Ireland on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, only 2hrs from Dublin by bus. With a population of 75 thousand, it is the third largest city in the Republic of Ireland.

    Galway acts as a major gateway to some of Ireland's best tourist sites. The Burren is located only an hour south of Galway. The Burren is a large area of exposed limestone rock, which contains many unique species of plant as well as some excellent scenery. The Cliffs of Moher are also located in this area. These cliffs rise up to 120 metres above the Atlantic Ocean and offer one of the most breathtaking views in Ireland. The Connemara region is located to the west of Galway. This remote area contains some very unique and rugged scenery. It is also home to some of Ireland's only Gaeltacht areas, where locals speak Gaelic as a first language. In the city itself there are many things to see such as the Spanish Arch, Galway Museum, Cathedral, Salthill Beach and the University, which is home to around 15,000 students.

    Galway has a very lively night scene even during the week, with many tourists and a large student population in the area. The majority of the bars and nightclubs are located either on or near Eyre Square or Shop Street. Shop street and High Street have a large variety of restaurants which serve fantastic seafood and international cuisines as well as local dishes.
