Location and orientation

Capital of County Galway

In the central west of Ireland, Galway covers an area of 50.6 square kilometres in the province of Connacht. With 79,500 inhabitants, it is the most populous city in the region.

Landscape features

To the south of the city, Galway Bay is a bay of the Atlantic Ocean. To the north of the metropolis lies the country's largest lake, Lough Corrib. The river Corrib rises in the water, flows through Galway and flows into the Atlantic Ocean.

Things to know

Culture and fun

Galway offers an interesting mix of Irish lifestyle on the west coast of the country. You can get to know the pub culture, visit the medieval old town, visit lively weekly markets and modern shopping centres or go on boat trips. Live music with Irish folk, regular festivals, horse racing and literary events are all part of the coastal town's entertainment programme.

Leisure activities for families

For holiday guests with children, there are varied excursions that will not leave you bored. The possibilities are limitless and offer local recreation and play fun in the parks and knightly walls of Dunguaire Castle or animal pleasure in Loughwell Farm Park. Boat trips on the Corrib, the nature museum Atlantaquaria or the Millennium Children's Park provide for an eventful stay.

Galway was named a city of literature and film by UNESCO alongside Dublin.

Top 3 travel tips

Historical insights

Next to the Spanish Arch is the city museum of Galway. The numerous travelling and permanent exhibitions are dedicated to archaeology, medieval life, world wars and industrial development.

Inner city park

Not far from the station is Eyre Square. The romantic square with adjoining city forest is a popular meeting place for locals and visitors. Lawns, fountains and the Galway Hookers monument provide a wonderful starting point to the city's shopping areas.

Strolling the Atlantic Ocean

The small suburb and district of Salthill has one of the most popular promenades in the region. Visitors can take a stroll and sight ships, taste local delicacies and stop at a pub. Legend has it that a kick against the wall at the end of the promenade brings luck.
