Galway is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city steeped in culture, rich in folklore and famous for its cobble-stoned streets, quaint shops and charming restaurants. Home to the world renowned Druid Theatre Company, Macnas Street Theatre Company and An Taibhdhearc, there is much to do in this wonderful city.
In addition, the surrounding landscape leaves one breathless, from the prehistoric fort of Dun Aengus, the most westerly point in Europe, to the Cliffs of Moher, Connemara and the Burren.
