Galway is the wild west of Ireland at its best. Rugged coastlines, dramatic hills and valleys, isolated islands, emerald fields and towns filled with traditional music, dancing, and language. Galway city is a tangle of cobbled streets, cosy pubs and mouth watering restaurants, the magnificent Connemara landscape is just a short drive away and the traditional Gaelic community of the Aran Islands are reachable with a quick boat trip too, although they both seem a world away.
