Galway, one of two cities chosen to be the European Capital of Culture in 2020, is a vibrant city practically bursting with life and culture.

Whimsical poem overlooking the River Corrib in Galway City

One of Ireland’s most gorgeous cities, Galway’s city centre is a colourful painting hugging the edge of Galway Bay. In the Middle Ages, Galway was a thriving port city – the principal Irish port for trade with Western Europe. Today, Galway is chocked full with artisanal shops, good restaurants and fun pubs, and a great place to relax to the tunes of traditional Irish music.

Once you get tired of Galway City, County Galway is a beautiful escape into the countryside, opening up a hidden Ireland filled with natural wonders, tiny villages, impressive coastlines and crumbling castles. West of Galway City lies the three Aran Islands where you’ll find a local Gaeltacht-rich culture. Just north in County Mayo, you’ll find the adorable town of Westport on the edge of the massive Clew Bay as well as the famed Connemara National Park, one of Ireland’s most enchanting landscapes. Just south, you’ll find County Clare and the world-renowned Cliffs of Moher.

Connemara is one of the most beautiful places to cycle on the Emerald Isle, and it is also one of the most picturesque. The Aran Islands provide a dramatic backdrop for a cycling adventure as well as a dip into another world as the locals on the Aran Islands still speak Irish Gaelic. South, you’ll find the limestone geological gem, the Burren National Park, another fantastic and other-worldly place to cycle. This area is also rich in megalithic sites as well as a more recent cultural history. In order to explore the best the regions has to offer, see our biking tours from Galway.
