County Galway, in the West of Ireland is an area of stunning scenery, framed by the sea all along the Wild Atlantic Way, and the craggy peaks of the Twelve Bens rising high above the purple hills, bog lands and lakes of Connemara.
Lough Corrib and Lough Mask, lure fishermen down through generations; artists and photographers are drawn by the constantly changing landscape and light. The remoteness and sheer beauty of the county, contrasts with the vibrancy of the lively University City of Galway, famous for its arts and cultural heritage, festivals, restaurants and pubs.
There is always something happening in Galway but especially during July, when the city hosts a Film/ Arts Festival and the famous Galway Races. Families love the choice of holiday destinations such as Spiddal and Salthill, Ballyconneely and Clifden, all offering different types of holidays, all with their own charm. Visits to the Aran Islands bring the celtic traditions of the West to life, easily done by ferry or plane from Rossaveal or Inverin.
