Galway Map

Galway is the gateway to the west coast of Ireland. This medieval city is surrounded by the Connemara landscape to the north, the River Shannon to the east, the hills of Clare to the south and the world famous Galway Bay and Aran Islands to the west, all of which are famous from many songs and stories.

Galway, a county borough of Ireland and the capital of county Galway, is Ireland's third largest city and claims to be the fasting growing city in Western Europe. It is a fine fishing location with the river Corrib, Lough Corrib and, of course, Galway Bay close at hand. Nearby Salthill has one of the finest beaches in Ireland and is a very popular resort.

Galway is a thriving centre for theatre, music and culture and annual events including the Galway Arts Festival, the famous Galway Races in July and the International Oyster Festivals in September.
