Galway city is a vibrant place, said to be Ireland's city of culture, it has many lovely restaurants providing both locally sourced produce and also ethnic foods and of course many pubs with traditional music.
There is a festival in Galway most of the year! Easter has the food festival which is very popular, Cuirt the literary festival follows on and then into the summer for the Galway Arts festival and the famous Galway races, Through the year there is always a great buzz in the city and to be part of it you only have to stroll through town, watch the buskers and street performers and have a drink sitting outside one of the many pubs and do a spot of people watching!
While here it is a great opportunity to visit Connemara, the Cliffs of Moher in county Clare and the Arran islands, all can be done as day trips from the city with one of the coach tour (email hidden) is possible to hire bicycles to explore the city.
Before you leave you should walk the famous Salthill prom,
and of course you kick the wall at Blackrock.

Wir haben uns ziemlich wohl gefühlt. Sarah hat uns vom Bahnhof abgeholt und uns morgens ein leckeres, kleines Frühstück zubereitet. Sie war sehr hilfsbereit!
Das Haus liegt in einem ruhigen Wohngebiet. Man ist super schnell am Wasser und auch in die Stadt kommt man gut zu Fuß.
Das Zimmer und das Bad waren sauber und ausreichend und so wie wir es uns vorgestellt haben.
Me and my husband stayed at Sarah and Clovis' (the lovely girly cat) house through 9 confortable and good days. Everything was as shown in the room's ad.
She helped us on everything we need and gave us all the tips we asked for.
We highly recommend it!!
Sarah was such a lovely host. Thoughtful, considerate, and caring. She was very welcoming and kindly offered me lifts to my local destinations. She made lovely breakfast , home made granola and compote with Greek yogurt and other lovely treats with easy access to a steady flow of tea at all times :-) She was very helpful with tourist tips and advice. The room was very nice and a private separate bathroom - both impeccably clean and tidy, as was the rest of the house. The location was great, beside the sea and a walk from town. I'd definitely recommend it and would go back there for my next stay in Galway.
Sarah made me feel very welcome - I really appreciated that she picked me up at the train station, as I had not been to Galway before, and the drive to her house gave me a sense of how to get around in Galway. Coffee was always ready when I got up, followed by a lovely breakfast. Sarah was always clear in her expectations and easy to talk to. She made great suggestions as to what to see while in Galway.
I would totally recommend staying with Sarah if you are planning to visit Galway and explore the surrounding area. Sarah's house is beautifully kept, hugely artistic and has a real tranquil feel to it - plus the double bed is huge and incredibly comfortable! We enjoyed a great night in Galway, where we could walk into town, enjoy a fantastic meal and catch some great live music. The sea is also just round the corner and on a gd day you can see almost right across the bay, making it a great location for an early morning walk or jog by the beach. Sarah thanks so much for accommodating us at such short notice and putting on such a great breakfast spread - I especially appreciated your efforts in making it gluten free! Brilliant!
I simply want to thank Sarah for everything!!! She took us at the station with her car while arriving at night. idem for the return. She gave us a lot of advice about visits - Galway itself and surroundings , pubs...and about Irish life in general. The accommodation is fantastic too with all the facilities you can expect and even more! the breakfast was perfect everyday with a wide range of products. Sarah, thanks a million times for your availability, i look forward to coming back asap!!!
Sara is very friendly and hospitable. We had a lovely weekend in Galway. The room was spacious and the comfortable. The breakfast was a nice touch. The location is the perfect distance for walking into town. I would definitively recommend it!
