The harbour city of Galway is a fascinating place to visit.

The harbour city of Galway is a fascinating place to visit. Sitting where the River Corrib meets the Atlantic Ocean, at its heart is 18th-century Eyre Square, a popular spot surrounded by shops and traditional pubs with live folk music. Remnants of the medieval town walls stand between shops selling handcrafted Claddagh rings, books and musical instruments.


The Salthill Hotel on Galway promenade, gives panoramic views of Galway Bay and the Clare hills. The hotel has 161 tastefully designed en-suite bedrooms all with multi-channel TV, hairdryer, tea/coffee-making facilities and free WiFi. There’s a swimming pool, a hydrotherapy pool, steam room, sauna, whirlpool and fully equipped gym.
