If you’re not Irish and your knowledge is minimal of Ireland you’ll probably know two places; Dublin (the capital) and Galway. Galway is referred to as Ireland’s Culture Capital and many people say you won’t get any better when it comes to Irish Trad sessions than in Galway! You probably heard of it from Ed Sheeran’s song ‘Galway Girl’ which realistically who hasn’t heard that song, it’s everywhere. Here are the top things you have to do when you visit Galway:
This is a seaside area of the city and is a perfect place for a walk down the Salthill Prom or swim in the ocean (if you’re brave enough to fight the freezing water) during the summer. Apart from the gorgeous views, there’s so much more you can do here: visit the Aquarium, play on the many slot machines or visit and try out one of the many pubs, restaurants, and cafés in this area and I can assure you, you won’t be stuck for choice!
