Galway is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city steeped in culture, rich in folklore and famous for its cobble-stoned streets, quaint shops and charming restaurants.

Home to the world-renowned Druid Theatre Company, Macnas Street Theatre Company and the Galway International Arts Festival, Galway is the cultural heart of Ireland.

The more rural parts of the region boast some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world, from the prehistoric fort of Dun Aengus on the Aran Islands, the most westerly point in Europe, to Connemara and the Burren.
