For anyone visiting Ireland, County Galway is one of the top destinations to visit. There is so much to see that one could spend nearly an entire holiday just visiting the sites in and around the county. Take a drive out to Connemara, go island hopping on the Aran Islands, learn some Irish abd go native in the Gaeltacht, enjoy the ‘craic’ and listen to traditional Irish music in many Galway city pubs or simply take a stroll on the promenade in Salthill and watch the sun go down on Galway Bay. There always seems to be something on, especially in the summer months, where every town and village has its own festival or market. The climax of this is in July when the Galway Arts Festival and the Galway Horse Racing Festival take place and draw in huge crowds to the city.
Golfing in Galway is a very rewarding experience too with many different types of courses: links, morland, parkland, etc. There are many busy members clubs to choose from and the atmosphere is distinctly laid back and informal.
