A tour of Galway City is a walk down the streets of a settlement that has seen much. Once a major trading post in the Middle Ages, Galway City also endured a nearly year-long siege during the Cromwellian Conquest of Ireland. Though its fortunes have ebbed and flowed over the years, Galway City is now a vibrant entertainment hub and a beloved destination for visitors from all over the world.
We recommend that your Galway City sightseeing include a look into some of the city’s famed local history. Galway City grew from a settlement around the Dun Bhun na Gaillime, a fort that once overlooked the River Corrib. Once you’ve learned a bit about The City of the Tribes—one of Galway City’s many nicknames—it’s time to find out why Galway City is also referred to as “The Cultural Heart of Ireland.” The residents of this city love music and the arts, and it seems every other day there’s some sort of festival or event going on. Whether you want to attend a concert or celebrate a gallery opening, Galway City probably has something up your alley.
While you can lose count of all the local performances you take in at pubs and cafes, don’t lose sight of Galway City’s natural beauty. As the sun goes down, you can take a stroll along Galway Bay, exchange stories of adventure with the residents, and take a breath of fresh sea air.
