  2. We love travel, sports and socialising. We enjoy the Cafe culture. We generally go with the flow of the location, and make random discoveries.

Where is it?


Galway, a harbour city on Ireland’s west coast, sits where the River Corrib meets the Atlantic Ocean. The city’s hub is 18th-century Eyre Square, a popular meeting spot surrounded by shops and traditional pubs that often offer live Irish folk music. Nearby, stone-clad cafes, boutiques and art galleries line the winding lanes of the Latin Quarter, which retains portions of the medieval city walls.
Known as The City of Tribes, Galway has long been a home of youth, learning, diversity and creativity. A beacon of culture in Ireland's west, its vibrant arts, culture, theatre, heritage and music scene makes it a true destination for artists, thinkers and creators of all kinds.
Salthill is a seaside resort on the northern shore of Galway Bay. It's beach consists of a series of small rocky or sandy stretches. Salthill Promenade offers views of the nearby harbour city of Galway and the Aran Islands. Species native to the Irish Atlantic are on show at the Galway Atlantaquaria aquarium. Founded in 1895, the Galway Golf Club has an 18-hole course and views of the bay.

Buzzy restaurants
Kai is in the western end of Galway city. It's a gorgeous space, roughly pointed stone, a wall made out of wooden remnants from Galway city's last thatched cottage, a glass ceiling that showcases the spire of the Church next-door. Dela Restaurant is more than a restaurant but a food venue where people can meet, share & enjoy!
Cool bars
Small, intimate, chock-full of character and live music venues, it lends itself perfectly to that most Irish of pursuits, the legendary craic, or simply having fun with friends, old and new.
Cozy cafés
The Kitchen Café located at Galway City Museum overlooking to the iconic Spanish Arch and some of the finest views of Galway Bay.
Retail therapy
Galway provides a wide range of shops to cater for the tastes of both visitors and locals alike. As well as the high street shops, there is an interesting variety of specialist and tourist orientated shops, which offer unique and interesting gifts. Many of the most interesting shops are located in small districts within the city centre including The Latin Quarter, The Westend and at stalls in Galway's famous bustling outdoor market which has been trading in Church lane by St Nicholas' Church for literally centuries. The city centre shopping areas are supplemented by a number of enclosed shopping centres.
Bit of culture
Galway is a perfect base to explore a wide range of attractions dotted outside of the city. Within a short distance by bus or car you can visit any of the places listed below. So make sure you see at least a few of these places on your visit.
Walks in the park
My favourite local walk takes me along by the River Corrib, through the grounds of NUIG, our University, and onto the Canals which go right to the City, and leads to the Salthill Promenade. The full circuit is approx 10 miles, but you can tailor to your own desire.
Spot of exercise
There are a number of outdoor gyms in our nearby park. There are numerous running trails & tracks in our area. There are guided walking & cycling tours in the City and beyond.
Day tripping
South from Galway to the Cliffs of Moher. Towards the West will take you to Connemara, including the Village of Clifden. Heading North from Galway will take you to Co. Mayo -visit Westport & Ashford Castle in Cong.
