County Galway (Contae na Gaillimhe in Irish) is one of Ireland’s premier locations with a peaceful and spell-binding ambience that captivates even seasoned tourists. Located in the west of the country, it continues to be one of the few counties with a strong presence of Irish-speaking inhabitants. A visit to County Galway is a step back in history and an immersion in Irish culture in a village-like atmosphere. You certainly cannot go wrong on its cobbled lanes and wild landscapes. Whether you are admiring the mountainous fairy-like region in Connemara or passing the green pastures in East Galway, there is never a dull or boring moment in County Galway.

What to See and Do
There is no better way to truly appreciate Ireland than by visiting its markets and mingling with locals. The Galway Market offers an enriching atmosphere that is perfect for all ages. Here you will see vendors busily showcasing their prized produce and crafts as the hours quickly tick by on Saturday or during a Bank Holiday.

Hiking, biking and walking tours are quite common in County Galway. The Twelve Bens in Connemara is a popular spot for adrenaline lovers that eat, breathe and sleep hiking. Some visitors generally go near to Clifden to bike, though the terrain in the county makes it possible to do so elsewhere with a little determination. The white-sand beaches off Connemara’s coast offer a different type of pastime for those that prefer water sports. The largest beaches can be found in the Roundstone and Renvyle areas. These compete with the scenic prominence of Lough Corrib — the largest lake in the county.

The Aran Islands- Inismor, Inismaan and Inisheer are contrasting geographical features that are constantly bombarded by the fierce Atlantic. Relics from centuries ago can still be found scattered at various locations. Stone monuments that date back to 2000 BC are a reminder of the life that once walked about on the islands. Organized tours fuel the sightseeing expeditions that continue to highlight the region’s popularity among tourists.

The city of Galway—also referred to as the City of Tribes—is a popular tourist attraction all year around. The contrast of modern architecture with medieval relics and signatures create the perfect atmosphere for adventure and awe. Notable attractions that constantly reinstate the city’s significance to Irish popularity include: The Galway Atlantaquaria, Galway City Museum and Galway Cathedral.

Medieval walls, castles, towers, historic houses and famous lanes all add to the fine details that knit the picturesque scenery in County Galway.

Various festivals are also held throughout the year. The Clarinbridge Oyster Festival unites oyster lovers from all over the world in September. Some boast that the most succulent oysters on the globe are found at the festival. The Tuam Arts festival, Galway Arts Festival and Galway Races all add to the commemorative spirit that can be felt in the county throughout different seasons. Major towns such as Tuam, Athenry, Ballinasloe, Gort and Loughrea also have their share of attractions for the curious visitor.

Climate
County Galway enjoys a humid climate due to its proximity to the Atlantic. Temperatures in January can reach 450F and in July 660F. Some inland areas enjoy favourable weather during the summer with temperatures going beyond 200C at times. Rainfall occurs every month and extreme weather is not uncommon in the region.

Interesting Fact
Dun Aengusa, which is located at the edge of a cliff, is one of the most heart-stopping sights in County Galway. The prized monument dates back to the time of Christ and remains well-preserved at almost 300ft above sea level.
