Co budeš dělat

The legendary tour centers around the tale of the Lynch family. Its a fascinating tale of how Walter Lynch is accused and tried for the murder of a visiting Spaniard who was a little too interested in his beautiful wife to be...or was he ? The story ends in a dramatic climax...but you will have to take the tour for that finale !

We also look at the legend of the Claddagh ring with a tale connected to Caribbean pirates, North African slave owners and a gold ring that speaks of eternal love.

Christopher Columbus makes his appearance too, looking for a new way to China, but worrying that Atlantis might stand in his way.

These and other tales are woven together in a 80-90 minute walk through the city. Its taken at a gentle pace to bring in all the major places of interest and embed them into the story of our city.

We have been running walking tours for over 10 years now, and just love the opportunity to show off our fabulous city. I have always loved history, and used to teach it when working as a educator. History is however so much more than the bare facts, so the stories that get wrapped around the events tend to be even more fascinating and memorable. It's a privilege to be part of the 'story-telling' tradition of the West of Ireland.

PLEASE NOTE : This tour is not aimed at 'History buffs', its about legends, stories, fun and 'getting under the skin' of Galway. Enjoy

Kde budeš

Galway is a fine medieval town, but it has alot of 'hidden' history. We start in the area of Eyre Square, looking for hidden history in the grand old Hardiman Hotel. After a diverting story about a stubbon Irish donkey we're then off to find Colombus' hidden drinking den, the city walls and even where Ed Sheeran knocked out tunes in his busking days. And that's before we get to the Claddagh rings and the Irish version of Atlantis !

We really enjoyed our tour and heard lots of interesting stories about Galway. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who is visiting Galway as a great way to discover the city. It was a really rainy day but Neil tailored the tour for us so that we stopped at a lot of indoor and sheltered locations which was very considerate.

Had a great time with Neil. We were running late, and he bent over backwards to accommodate us. He has a wealth of understanding of Galway, and knows many personal stories. He used to teach history, and this really shines through. He was full of recommendations for bars and places to eat. Could not reccommend enough.
