A city known for the biggest Irish and international festivals each year, it’s no surprise that Galway is European Capital of Culture in 2020. Exciting theatre productions, short films and compelling exhibitions fill its social calendar attracting audiences from around the globe.

Go wild for natural beauty

One of Ireland’s premier tourist attractions, The Wild Atlantic Way snakes along 689 kilometres of Galway coastline revealing stunning greenways and cycling routes. Visitors pause to explore its offshore Aran Islands and bask in the beauty of Galway Bay.

Excellent quality always on the menu

Galway was the first region in Ireland to win the coveted European Region of Gastronomy in 2018: a testament to 23 farmers markets and a host of restaurants bringing the best ingredients from farm to fork.
