At Dromoland Castle
For many, Galway is the beating heart of Ireland’s heritage – a colourful, historic city with a bohemian bent that values art, music and culture more than most. Here traditional pubs pulse with live music, twisting streets heave with street entertainers and bustling restaurants fill with locals and visitors enjoying the outstanding local seafood, freshly caught close by.
While you’ll still find traces of the town’s medieval walls, and Ireland’s oldest fishing village, the Claddagh, you’ll also find a city pulsing with an energy and dynamism thanks to its youthful population. Come for local oysters and a pint of Guinness, a sing-along in a cosy pub, a seafront stroll out around Galway Bay, a Michelin-starred dining experience or a walking tour of the charming city that has been chosen as European Capital of Culture 2020.
