Pocket Guide: Claddagh Galway Bay Hotels

Galway Bay is one of Ireland’s outstanding natural attractions, and every year visitors flock to see the beautiful waters of the bay, the delightful Aran Islands and the unspoilt sandy beaches along the shoreline. Accommodation along the coastline features beachfront hotels, family-run guesthouses and intimate bed and breakfasts.

Galway Bay’s Landscapes and Views

Bing Crosby sang of watching the sun go down over Galway Bay, and there can be few more beautiful sights than a sunset over the water from your hotel balcony. The sea lough is 31 miles long and 19 miles wide, and every drop of water is precious to the people of Galway. The waters of Galway Bay have inspired musicians singers for generations. John Lennon spoke of making chains of the morning dew, while The Pogues mention the famous folk song in their Fairytale of New York. It’s easy to see why the bay had such an impact on these artists when you visit – you’ll want to pick up a paintbrush or find a guitar to compose your own ode to Galway Bay.

Galway Bay’s Beach Hotels

All along the southern coast of Galway, you’ll find some spectacular beaches and coastlines. The wild western coast is white sand and roaring waves, with Dog’s Bay, Silver Strand, Coral Beach Carraroe, Salthill and Kilmurvey all worth seeing. Many beaches have a prestigious blue flag in recognition of their clean and accessible presentation.

The Aran Islands and Hotels

The three islands of Aran are starkly beautiful places, and their windswept magnificence attracts thousands of visitors prepared to take a 45-minute ferry journey from Galway city. The islands have two of the oldest forts in Ireland, Dun Aonghasa and Dun Chonchuir, Iron Age fortifications that have survived the centuries, along with the thousands of miles of stone walls that criss-cross the islands. There is also a thriving local arts scene, and weavers who make the traditional Aran sweater.

Relaxing in Galway Bay Hotels

With so many venues for fresh air and scenery, Galway Bay is a prime location for all kinds of outdoor activities. You can go sea kayaking along the shoreline, explore the countryside on horseback, go for a long walk along the beaches and cliffs, or take a cycle ride to take in even more sights. Of course there are many, many golf courses to choose from, with links courses and pitch and putts all over Galway Bay.

And if that’s not easy, Expedia can lend a helping hand, and give you plenty of information to make the right choice and find the perfect place for you.
