Galway City (Ireland)

Community Quote

With its multicoloured facades, bohemian taverns and generally laid-back ambience, I was hooked on Galway right from the start. Prettier than Cork, livelier than Killarney and more relaxed than Dublin, this is definitely the town I felt most at home in during my husband Dave’s and my ... Read review

Bongos and Beer By the Bay

AdvantagesGreat atmosphere, beautiful scenery, plenty to see and do!

DisadvantagesUmm... nope can't help you there!

"...ambience, I was hooked on Galway right from the start. Prettier than Cork, livelier than Killarney and more relaxed than Dublin, this is definitely the town I felt most at home in during my husband Dave’s and my recent trip to Ireland. Galway City (or Gaillihm) is described by Lonely Planet (Europe on a Shoestring, 1st edition, March 1999) as “a pleasure, with its old stone and wooden shop-fronts, good restaurants and busy music pubs ..."

Galway

AdvantagesGreat atmostphere in bars & on the street, relaxed place, loads of pubs,

DisadvantagesNot a great deal to do

"...only spent 1 night in Galway but what a contrast to Dublin. Having been to Ireland over 10 times and spent most of it in Navan & Dublin, it was nice to go somewhere different. Getting There>>>>>>> Situated on the West Coast, Galway is about 3 hours drive from Dublin. It's meant to be 2.5 hours by train, but ours took 5 hours (not nice). If drivings not for you, then a coach goes from O'Connell Street every hour, costs 9 punts one way ..." Read review

Confession of a Galwaymaniac

AdvantagesA great base for touring and a city full of life and vitality.

DisadvantagesPatchy public transport and some ugly ribbon building.

"...of Ireland. Not that Galway feels 'safe' in a stodgy kind of way. We didn't go for the nightlife but there was a buzz about the place that hit us as soon as we stepped off the train. Now what is this thing called a 'buzz'? We couldn't quite work it out to start with, but then it dawned on us: we were a couple of dinosaurs abroad in a modern landscape. Galway is a young city, full of young people. It's a city too, with more than its share of teething ..." Read review

Galway City is Great

Advantagescompact, diverse activities,pubs live music

Disadvantagescan be expensive,

"...have been coming to Galway for over ten years now and have seen massive changes some good and some bad. As a tourist destination i believe it offers some great activities and as the years go on there seems to be more and more stuff happening. Obviously though the major attraction is the relaxed atmosphere and friendliness.Of course the pubs have a lot to do with this especially on sunny days when everyone spills out onto the street. If you haven't ..." Read review

Galway - not all it's craiced up to be

AdvantagesLots of pubs and restaurants.

DisadvantagesIt's just another small town - and dodgy accounting.

"...Ireland - Clare, Mayo and Galway - spending a night or two in B&Bs all over, with the last few spent in Galway. We wanted to see Galway as it has a good repuation for being a lively and lovely city, but after having seen all the natural beauty that the region has to offer, the city was a bit of a let down. If you're after somewhere to enjoy the pubs, restaurants and nightlife then you are spoilt for choice and sure to find something to your taste. ..." Read review
