Lets face it, in the age of smartphones and internet, we all have attention span of a butterfly. Maybe, instead of telling you how awesome Galway is, we just need to show it? These are some of our favourite photos of Galway, plus Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands and Connemara, which are the most popular tours you can take from Galway. Enjoy the photo journey, and hopefully, you will get to enjoy the real journey soon enough as well
And remember, when in Galway, stay in the heart of it – stay in the Barnacles Galway Hostel

And this is how it looks for Christmas. Pretty!
The real heart of Galway is on the Quay Street – walk down the shop street, and get into the heart of The Latin Quarter! You will be surrounded by quirky shops, traditional pubs, amazing night life and range of coffee places. This is where Saturday market is taking place, where the best gigs happen and where you can take a walk down the prom to Salhill (and fall in love with Galway Girl, if you are to believe the song).
Any given night will be like this:
There will of course be amazing music as well:
And when you do go for a stroll…

Cliffs of Moher
But don’t forget… Galway is the gateway to amazing West of Ireland, with some of the best scenery you will ever see. EVER! Cliffs of Moher, the most visited tourist attraction in Ireland, are just an hour away from Galway, and they are simply stunning, on any given day!

Seriously breathtaking! We can book tours for you at reception, in both Dublin and Galway, so don’t miss out on this!
Home of the gorgeous, lush green scenery, hills, lakes… you will go through your camera battery in the first hour there
And don’t forget to visit Kylemore Abbey, it’s walled gardens and try chocolate and jam made by nuns!

Just ask at reception for the tours! They leave daily from Galway, with plenty of stops and photo opportunities
If you want to see Ireland as it once was, take a ferry to Aran Islands – you will find yourself in the middle of Gaelic talking community, and the rugged, natural beauty you cant quite experience anywhere else in the world. Red Bull Cliff Diving took place there this year:
And who knows, you might make new friends
