Galway Ireland  (The City of Tribes)

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.

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.

    I love that you were able to explore Galway and share your time and insights with us. Often time, people go to Dublin and Shannon only. I’ve never visited Galway but I know I have to now! Great post!

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research about this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I’m very glad to see such great info being shared freely out there.

      Thats great! If you need more info feel free to ask

    Thank you for sharing these kinds of wonderful posts. In addition, the perfect travel plus medical insurance system can often relieve those fears that come with traveling abroad. Your medical crisis can rapidly become costly and that’s likely to quickly impose a financial impediment on the family finances. Putting in place the great travel insurance deal prior to leaving is worth the time and effort. Thanks

    • travelmyjourney

      Oh yes! Very interesting and important point to be mention. Thanks for your feedback medical insurance is the key to any mishap in your travel plan.
