Getting Around

The handiest way to get around the city is by foot because the majority of pubs, clubs and restaurants are situated in a very small area. If you need to travel to the outskirts Bus Eireann operate the city’s buses. They leave from Eyre Square every twenty minutes and fares are €2 for any route. Weekly commuter tickets are also available.


Galway is well-known for having all the sought-after qualities of a larger city while maintaining the virtues of a smaller country town. From quaint pubs to the numerous trendy clubs scattered throughout the city, everyone will find somewhere to chill out be it sipping a pint or boogying on the dance floor.

Traditional music sessions can be heard in establishments throughout the city. Some of the more popular venues include Tigh Coili’s, Neachtains, The Crane and An Pucan.

There is a strong arts and culture tradition which appeals to both the young and old. Galway is seen as Ireland’s centre of entertainment and even a short visit to the city is testament to that. There is a huge choice of entertainment on offer geared not only towards tourists, but also the local and strong student population.
