Galway City

Located on the west coast of Ireland, along the Wild Atlantic Way, Galway City is considered the cultural capital of Ireland.  Galway is a UNESCO City of Film and was recently selected as the European Capital of Culture 2020.

Galway, with its narrow medieval streets, historic buildings, buskers, colourful shop fronts and vibrant night life, has a bohemian feel.  The City explodes with energy during the month of July when the festival scene reaches its zenith. Galway Film Fleadh, Galway International Arts Festival and Galway Fringe Festival, bring visitors from around the world to experience the best in music, film, theatre, literature and visual art. The week long horse-racing festival, the Galway Races, at the end of July is Ireland’s most well know racing festival.
