There are many different things to do in Galway, from having a walk through Connemara National Park to visiting restaurants and bars on Quay Street. There is such a wide variety of things do in Galway so if you visit, there will never be a dull day. Maybe you would like to visit Galway Cathedral or visit Rathbaun Farm, the opportunities are endless.
 
I am a intern at TourIreland.com for the week and I think that Galway is such a wonderful place to visit when exploring Ireland. So here is my top 6 things to do when visiting Galway:
 
 
Connemara National Park
 
Why not take a walk through the hills of Connemara and admire the nature that surrounds you on your travels. If you love nature and are up for a bit of climbing then you can’t miss this!
 
 
Galway City Museum
 
Galway City Museum has collected and displayed items that come from Galway history, so if you love history and want to learn about early Galway this is definitely the place to go.
 
Dunguaire Castle
 
Dunguaire Castle was built in 1520 by the O’Hynes clan on the beautiful shores of Galway. It has been well preserved so it would definitely be the place to go if you’d like to see how people live in the 16th Century.
 
 
Galway Cathedral
 
Located on the banks of the River Corrib in Galway city, Galway Cathedral is the most recently built great stone Cathedral in Europe, It is celebrating its 50th year in 2015 and is a place you must go and see.
 
Galway Atlantaquaria
 
The Galway Atlantaquaria is the National Aquarium of Ireland and is located on Salthill overlooking Galway Bay. Visitors can hold starfish and giant spider crabs, feed fish and even see a 50ft skeleton of a fin whale. It is a good day trip for friends and family so this offer should not be missed.
