Galway is one of Ireland’s most charming and romantic cities. Known as the “City of the Tribes”, after the 14 famous families who forged Gaillimh’s history, Galway is a magnet for visitors with its rich Celtic and Spanish heritage, vibrant arts scene and lengthy list of festivals.
And 2013 – the year of the Gathering - is an even better reason to gather in Galway during its vibrant festival season. This year also marks the 50th anniversary since President John F. Kennedy visited Eyre Square in the heart of the city.
Delightfully compact, Galway is easy to stroll around. Explore its medieval streets dotted with brightly-painted shop fronts, handsome limestone buildings and landmarks.
