Our program in Galway
“The city that dreams awake, the city that will change your life”
Looking for bohemian cool and traditional culture on the edge of the Wild Atlantic Way? Try Galway, one of Ireland’s most enjoyable destinations.
Visit Galway during festival time and you’ll understand the city’s reputation as a party town. Every summer, this western gem comes alive with festivals that draw the very best of local and international talent. Be wowed with the quality of the Galway International Arts Festival (July), see something unique at the Galway Film Fleadh (July), and find out why the Galway International Oyster Festival (September) has been called one of the greatest events on earth. Either way, prepare to party.
Galway’s got one of the liveliest pub scenes on the island. Step inside the warm wooden nooks and crannies of Tigh Neachtain’s on Cross Street and you’ll happily lose hours gazing at the knick-knacks and memorabilia while sipping a glass of Galway Hooker craft beer. Other great spots in the city include Murphy’s and Garavan’s.
