Gorgeous Galway

If you can’t decide between a city-based holiday or a more laid-back beach break, then the city of Galway on the west coast of Ireland could be exactly what you’re looking for as it combines both beautifully. With plenty of cheap flights available and a brilliant choice of hotels in Galway, it couldn’t be easier to put together the perfect holiday without breaking the bank.


The City

Galway’s a city to fall in love with you as you explore its cobbled streets and quirky, colourful shops. There’s a fantastic choice of places to eat and drink to your heart’s content after a tiring day of sightseeing. Make sure you wander down the promenade and watch the sun set over Galway Bay. And it’s essential to experience at least one evening in a traditional music pub like The Crane Bar.


The Beaches 

If the sun’s out (and even if it’s not), you can spend many happy days exploring the stunning coastal scenery of the west coast of Ireland. The beach in the city, Salthill is where all the locals head when the sun is out but if you’re willing to venture further afield you’ll be rewarded with a huge choice of fantastic, ruggedly beautiful beaches. Whether you’re walking, sunbathing or building sandcastles, there’s something for everyone.



There are plenty of sightseeing tours available in Galway, ranging from a straightforward walking tour to a guided pub crawl and even helicopter flights! Kids will love Galway Atlantaquaria, the National Aquarium of Ireland, and history buffs will delight in the living history to be found all around, including Galway Cathedral and the famous Spanish Arch.

So for a city break with a seaside flavour Galway ticks all the boxes for a perfect getaway for families, couples and groups of friends alike.
