Best things to do in County Galway

Park
“Situated in the West of Ireland in County Galway, Connemara National Park covers some 2,000 hectares of scenic mountains, expanses of bogs, heaths, grasslands and woodlands. Some of the Park’s mountains, namely Benbaun, Bencullagh, Benbrack and Muckanaght, are part of the famous Twelve Bens or Beanna Beola range. Connemara National Park was established and opened to the public in 1980. Much of the present Park lands formed part of the Kylemore Abbey Estate and the Letterfrack Industrial School, the remainder having been owned by private individuals. The southern part of the Park was at one time owned by Richard (Humanity Dick) Martin who helped to form the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals during the early 19th century. The Park lands are now wholly owned by the State and managed solely for National Park purpose.”

“Located just off the coast of Galway are the Irish-speaking Aran Islands. The largest of the three islands, Inis Mór, has been described as 'one of the world’s top island destinations' by National Geographic. Reachable by ferry from Rossaveal, a 5-minute drive from Tigh Tommy Connolly, the welcoming island is home to the World Heritage site Dún Aonghasa, a Bronze Age fort set on dramatic 300 feet high cliff. ”

“A fantastic “old man pub” as we like to call it. Fantastic old style Irish pub with tons of character and “characters”, a great pint of Guinness to be had, an excellent spot for people watching - and allegedly the place Christoper Columbus stayed in 1477 for a stint before going on to discover the New World. FYI: He also worshipped at St. Nicholas Collegiate Church off Shop Street in the city centre. it’s a gorgeous pub on Quay Street my bear the Spanish Arch with a lovely restaurant upstairs that serves delicious Galway Bay Oysters. ”

“One of two of the only remaining arches of the original city wall constructed in the Middle Ages. Beautiful area of the city with many restaurants, the city museum, the old Claddagh pier and many, many swans. Stunning spot to relax in the city right next to the roaring River Corrib. ”
