Galway is not just a place- it's a way of life

Founded in 1845, NUI Galway is located in the West of Ireland, in Galway - the ‘City of the Tribes’. Uniquely located in a beautiful historic campus in the west coast of Ireland, on the edge of the Wild Atlantic Way coastline and only 2 hours drive from Dublin.

Galway is a place like no other.
