Visiting Galway Ireland is an extraordinary fun for me. It was voted most romantic place in 2016.  The sight of the traditional town, street artist performances, walking along the River Corrib, the glimpse of a fisherman and Salthill flag beaches. Here is a quick guide for a Galway City.

How to reach Galway Ireland?

You can travel by bus or train from Dublin, Cork, Belfast or any major County. Driving by yourself from Dublin is very smooth from Motorway and hardly took 2.5 hours to reach.

My favorite place for a brunch next to the iconic Spanish Arch. This place is splendid for its classic environment with a number of food options for everyone.

O’Reilly Bar Kitchen is located in Salthill perfect option for Lunch time. A unique part of this place is it got the best view rooftop bar with a local staff to serve you food of your choice.

Street Food and Music under the same roof is the best combination for a Dinner.  Biteclub is the hub of entertainment. Check this place on Friday night for a perfect night club environment.

Things-to-do in Galway!

Walk into the street of this beautiful city. Enjoy architecture, environment, culture and amazing street artist.

  • Eyre Square

  • Oscar Wilde & Eduard Vilde Statue

  • Kirwan’s Lane

  • Spanish Arch

  • Lynch’s Castle

It’s one the most impressive houses by the fourteen tribes which ruled the city centuries ago. Lynch Castle interior is worth visiting to experience the essence of this place. Exhibition room opens from Monday to Wednesday and on Fridays.

  • Salmon Wier Bridge

Salmon Wier Bridge is a flawless summers spot which crosses from Cathedral to River Corrib. This place is ideal for catching salmon in the high season.

It is one of the Ireland’s largest church made from stones. Galway Cathedral has one of the most stunning architecture, Rose Windows and wall paintings.

 

Galway Ireland

  • The Bridge Mills

This bridge is on the bank of the River Corrib. It is 430 years old and now the centre for language, skill based projects and art.

Galway Ireland

  • Salthill

Life is better at Beach !! What are you waiting for ?? Salthill is very nearby Galway city and ideal to unwind your day.

For me, it is a perfect escape from a Dubliner’s life. Galway is a perfect place to experience Irish medieval environment, colorful buildings, Rivers and Nearby Seaside. And Yes !!! This is the Same place by Ed Sheeran song <<Galway Girl>> Must Watch to swing your Mood On !!
