Itinerary looking a little empty? Galway holiday all organised but no idea what you're going to do when you arrive there? Let us guide you.
Home to wonders like Galway Cathedral and the Spanish Arch, there will never be a dull moment in this spirited city. When you're done having a look at those, head in the direction of the Galway City Museum and St. Nicholas' Collegiate Church.
We're all fond of our feathered and fuzzy friends, but how about acquainting yourself with those who are a little more scaly and slippery? Meet a few of the remarkable residents of the underwater realm at National Aquarium of Galway. Visitors in this destination are spoilt for choice. With its crazy lights and bleeping machines, Leisureland is an exciting, colourful place to spend an afternoon. Try your hand at pinball or just enjoy watching the youngsters as they try and settle on which game to play first! Still got time to spare? Find a good vantage point and watch the world roll by at Eyre Square. If you feel sociable, this time-worn public space is also an awesome spot to have a friendly conversation with a couple of the locals.

Nearest Airports to Galway

This moderate hotel was clean with friendly staff. Hotel location is excellent and within walking distance to shopping, pubs, nightlife, attractions, and Galway Bay.
The staff is wonderful the location is good only 1 mile from city and walkable. The Hotel sits on a busy corner, from the outside we almost canceled. Once we came inside we stayed and I am glad we did! The food was GREAT and I he service and staff is excellent. I would definitely stay again the next ...
The hotel was very nice and service was excellent. The room was clean and well appointed. Didn’t like the decor in the halls and the common areas. It was a bit of a walk to town.
Very friendly, helpful staff. We were given a huge suite, beyond what we needed, but appreciated. Plenty of parking space and great location if you need to hit the road the next day - close to motorway. It is a bit of a trip into Galway town, but we had no trouble finding parking buildings in town. ...
Great spot to walk into town but far enough out that it was quiet. Great water view and the room was very clean, comfy. Staff were helpful but did accidentally charge us for a dinner we did not have. They promptly fixed the bill though so no bother!
Victoria properties location was far enough away from the Latin Quarter to not hear the noise, but close enough to walk everywhere in the Galway city center. Bed were okay and breakfast in the morning had a typical irish style breakfast option.
