Perched on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, Galway is the largest city in the West of Ireland. It is far from being a sleepy little town however, and its dynamic spirit and picturesque scenery attract a large population of students and artists.
Galway provides a great base for touring Connemara, the Burren and Ireland’s Western region. It is also has an extensive schedule of events & festivals and a vibrant arts and culture scene.
Popular annual events include the Galway Races (26th Jul – 1st Aug 2010), the Galway International Oyster Festival (23 – 26th Sep 2010) and the Macnas Festival Parade (18th Jul 2010).
The pretty cobbled streets, busy nightlife and bustling restaurants are a big draw for overseas tourists and the Irish alike and Galway Hotels are often very busy. Whilst the economic downturn has forced room rates down in Galway, they have not dropped by as much as other Irish cities. However, if you keep your eyes open and dates flexible you can still pick up great hotel deals in Galway.
