    Taking its name from its main city, County Galway occupies a long and rather contrived coastline with the western approaches of the Atlantic.

    The city of Galway lies at the centre of the county, on the west coast of Ireland, on the River Corrib, between Lough Corrib and Galway Bay. Due to the prevailing winds of the North Atlantic Current and the Gulf Stream, Galway City enjoys a mild, moist and temperate climate, without great extremes of temperature.

    Things to do in Galway
    Bird watching and walking are both key pursuits in County Galway. The region’s biodiversity is perhaps best represented in the west of the county, by the rural grandeur of Connemara National Park, almost 3,000 hectares of mountains, heathlands, bogs, grasslands and forest, most notably famous for the diversity of its birdlife; kestrals and sparrowhawks  are native species, with snipe, song and mistle thrush, and woodcock migrating through during the Winter months.

    Galway CityNow promoting itself as the ‘third city’ in Ireland after Dublin and Cork, Galway was once just a small fishing village, growing during the Middle Ages to be the principal Irish port to be trading with France and Spain. Today the city is at the centre of a vibrant arts, literature, food and music culture, with the Galway Arts Festival taking place every July, and an annual Oyster Festival each September. Galway Cathedral is perhaps the most impressive building in the city, with its fine dome visible as a prominent landmark on the city skyline.

    Lough CorribConnected to the sea by the River Corrib at Galway, and one of the largest loughs in Ireland, Lough Corrib consists of two distinctive sections; a shallow southern basin is connected by a narrow channel to the deeper northern basin area, meaning that the Lough offers a varied environment for a wide variety of flora and fauna. More than 1,200 islands are said to lie within the area of the Lough. Lake Corrib is internationally renowned both for its fishing and for its wildlife. Birds, hawks, otters, stoats, bats and frogs are just a few of the attractions for nature lovers, who flock to the shores of the Lough each year.

    TuamTo the north of Galway City lies the town of Tuam. The home of the Irish rock band, ‘the Saw Doctors’, and claimed by locals to be the smallest city in the world (based on the old definition of a city requiring the presence of a cathedral), Tuam is however, still officially designated as a town, despite the fact that it actually has TWO cathedrals.

    Dunguaire Castle – On the south eastern shores of Galway Bay, the 16th century walls and 75 foot tower of Dunguaire Castle are now used as a film location, as well as a venue for regular events, including the hosting of mediaeval banquets during the Summer months. The grounds are also open to the public.

    KinvaraA sea port village, Kinvara hosts an annual Irish music festival (‘the cuckoo festival’) each May, and a (‘gathering of the boats’) sailing event every August.  The traditional ‘Galway Hooker’ boats are an historic type of fishing vessel, specially developed to ply the local waters, which were used to transport turf, limestone, barley and timber, and the August festival celebrates a renewed interest in the boats, many of which have been painstakingly restored and reconstructed by sailing enthusiasts.

    ClaregalwayHost to an annual drama festival each March and to a garden festival every July, the village of Claregalway is also home to the ruins of a fine mediaeval Franciscan friary and a Norman watchtower.  

    Muckanaghederdauhaulia – Once regarded as the holder of the longest place name in Ireland, the townland lies on a low and rather boggy peninsula in Camus Bay.

    BallinasloeTo the east of the county, the town of Ballinasloe is host to one of the oldest and largest traditional horse fairs in Europe. Each October, more than 100,000 visitors attend this event and the accompanying agricultural and arts festival which takes place at the same time.
