Galway is the capital city of the West, and is regarded as the ‘most Irish’ city in all the land. Visitors to Ireland should have Galway at the top of their list as it offers a truly amazing experience of what Ireland has to offer. It is a centre of culture, arts and world renowned Irish hospitality. Festivals are ever present in the city from food to music and arts. The nightlife in Galway has something for every taste, whether you want to relax in a small tranquil pub, join the locals for a traditional Irish music session, or party the night away in one of Galway’s top nightclubs.
The outlying areas and waterways are as alluring as the city itself as there are a number of incredible views, rich heritage and activities to be found. The Gaeltacht area (Irish speaking area) is one of the last remaining strongholds of the Irish language and offers an insight into times gone by. The Aran Islands are the hidden gems of Ireland’s coastline which boast breath-taking views and ancient ruins. Surrounding towns such as Spiddal have beautiful beaches for those in search of relaxation on the golden sand.
Renting a car puts all of this at your feet to explore at your own pace. Europcar Galway is located in Motorpark on the Headford Road which is a very short distance from the city centre.
