5. Is there a walking or cycling tour that you'd recommend?
Galway is the oldest and largest city on the Wild Atlantic Way, a 2500km fully defined coastal touring route along the entire west coast of Ireland. We regularly receive glowing reports from guests who go out on our Traditional Fishing Boats or Galway Hookers with Wild Atlantic Adventures.
6. What are Galway's hidden treasures, places the tourists don't normally see?
Galway is Ireland’s only bilingual city, with 20% speaking Irish (gaelic). An Taibhdhearc, our National Irish language theatre, is definitely worth checking out, or perhaps Druid, which provides-award winning performances time and time again in intimate surroundings.
7. What about authentic Irish crafts and design, where should I shop?
The Galway Market takes place each Saturday and Sunday near the hotel, and offers both crafts and local food for visitors and locals to enjoy.
