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 offers a vibrant atmosphere often accompanied by live Irish 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. The city is surrounded by a number of famous tourist attractions along Irelands Wild Atlantic Way including Connemara, the Burren and the picturesque Cliffs of Moher.
