Located along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, Galway is a medley of bright, painterly shops, heady live music venues and quirky eateries – making it the perfect spot for a weekend getaway. The city, often referred to as Ireland’s cultural beating heart, is a hub of activity crammed full of innovative art, theatre and stand-up comedy. In fact, its much-applauded creativity has seen it named the European Capital of Culture for 2020. Best appreciated on foot, the city’s network of cobbled streets are a joy to explore for all ages - where you can while away the day listening to traditional folk music, sampling the area’s famous fresh oysters at the local restaurants, and partying up a storm at the famous Latin Quarter.
