Still looking back to Ireland and I just noticed that I never actually wrote my post about Galway. How could I, right?!
I mean it is freaking Galway =) So I will do this today.
Here are my Top 5 Things to do in Galway
1 . Go into a pub. That is what Galway is known for, rightly so. I can dare you that no matter which day of the week you will be able to catch some live music session. From concerts to spontaneous playing instruments together, to traditional dancing. There is always something going on. Simply ask at your Hotel or Hostel, the locals know best 😉
2 . Check out Salthill and the Seaside Promenade. It is a nice walk along the coast and beaches, to the kind of entertainment area, with restaurants and pubs. If the weather is great, the walk is definitely worth your time. We didn’t have such great weather, but we still walked, which resulted in nearly getting blown away by the strong wind 😉
3. Eat Seafood. The whole of Ireland has glorious Seafood, but Galway really takes it up a notch.
4 . Enjoy the street artists. I have never heard such great singers perform on the streets. Take your time and enjoy, they have some great shows there, right on the streets 😉
5 . Walk through the city and enjoy the views. It’s a quaint little town, with loads of pubs and cute little stores. A typical tourist town, but nevertheless awesome for a walk. If you can, check out the medieval wall and the spanish arch.
In short, I don’t think Galway is your typical Sightseeing city, but more a holiday place.
A place where you hang out at the beach, drink and eat with friends and enjoy a good time. And the atmosphere definitely is right.
I really enjoyed our stay there and I wouldn’t skip it, because every traveller needs a place to relax at during a journey.
Did you go there yet? What was your favorite thing to do`? =)
