Visitors Guide To: Galway

Galway is one of our favourite places to visit in Ireland. It’s always good craic whether you’re going for a hen party or weekend away with your partner. Here’s our suggestions on where to sleep, eat, drink and do in Galway.

1. SLEEP

The G Hotel

If you’re looking for a plush get away then the G is for you. It’s a great spot for a girly weekend away too with their afternoon tea and thermal spa being a must!

A gorgeous hotel in Salthill just 10 minutes from the city centre. It’s sea views and great food and ambience make it a lovely get away – the full size pool is a plus too if you have the kids with you.

2. EAT

Kai Cafe

One of the best eateries in the city by far, this delightful little spot serves up fresh homegrown produce in an absolutely adorable setting (it used to be a florist and there’s still traits left – very rustic and romantic.) They don’t have printed menus as they have fresh specials up on the board every day – it doesn’t get much better than that!

3. DRINK

O’Connors Bar

This little pub is infamous in Galway but they keep it secret pretty well! There’s not a nook, cranny or bit of ceiling that doesn’t have something hung on it – it’s oozing with character and coziness. The place is always heaving and the trad makes the experience all that better – a definite must to visit.

Busker Brownes

If you’re looking for a bar a bit more current then Buskers is for you. It’s packed at the weekend and always good fun – great for meeting eligible men we hear!

4. DO

Walking the promenade in Salthill is great to brush away the cobwebs and on a dry Summers night you can catch the most beautiful sunsets in Ireland. If the weather’s warm enough then taking a leap off the pier is a must. There’s loads of pubs and eateries in Salthill to enjoy – The Oslo, La Collina, Da Roberta, and Black Cat to name a few.
