Known as the City of the Tribes, fourteen merchant families or tribes ruled the city in the twelfth century. Today the city is a tourist destination and a centre for arts and culture.
Tourists can enjoy the many activities on offer. The Atlantic makes the town an ideal starting point for angling and other water sports such as surfing, diving, and boating. Other outdoor activities include walking, biking, and horseback riding. There are a number of restaurants and pubs in the city squares. There are also a lot of the theatres and clubs, many which perform traditional Irish music, dance and plays.
The city itself has a lot of charm with everything accessible by foot. Special attractions cannot be missed such as Spanish Arch located near the Corrib which is the remainder of a 16th century bastion, added to the town's walls to protect merchant ships from looting. Another area worth visiting is the Claddagh, which shows how fishing has been an important way of life here for centuries.
