The city has an uptempo vibe. Its cobbled streets are lined with cafés, boutiques and lively pubs great for shopping and fun nights out. Many festivals take place here throughout the year and it also boasts a thriving arts scene.
Galway is also a county of great beauty with the vast, breathtaking wilderness of Connemara, a region packed with barren mountains, bogs, lakes and craggy coasts. Connemara is also home to the largest Irish speaking region (Gaeltacht) and has provided the island with a radio station, TV channel and newspaper all in Irish.
It's a popular place among people moving to Ireland for the first time as it offers a true taste of the country and its culture.
