Sightseeing
On a sunny day in Galway a stroll down the Salthill promenade is just the ticket. You'll find locals and tourists alike taking in the views and sea air. On a clear day you might just see County Clare across the bay! If you're feeling adventurous, take a dip off Black rock swimming pier or enjoy a walk along the sandy beaches. The village of Salthill is about a 30 minute walk from Galway, and well worth a visit. There are great options for coffee: Ground & Co has lovely seaside views, Jungle cafe is right along the water for a takeaway coffee and Gourmet tart & Co has some cakes and pastries that are unbeatable. Restaurants in Salthill are top tier as well; Papa Rich is just above the Aquarium and its second floor windows offer a fabulous view of the bay. Black Cat is a cool spot check out, classy but laid back, this is the place if you're craving tapas and seafood. Da Roberta's is another option in town, great for pasta and pizza and this is just to name a few! There are also some fantastic bars in this little town, one of the most famous being O' Connors Famous Pub; yes, that is its real name! It's only open between 7:30pm - 12:30pm, but it is always packed with people and there's live music every night! Oslo Bar and Microbrewery is another gem in Salt Hill, with unique beers and a great menu for food.

The Spanish arch, built in the 16th century, is one of the few places where you can see a piece of the wall that once used to encircle the city. Spanish traders would dock their boats and then pass through the arch to deliver their goods. Just beyond the arch sits Galway City museum. Worth a visit for anyone interested in Galway's history and Irish history in general. Upstairs there's even an interactive marine exhibit for kids.

Conveniently located just off of Eyre Square, we're 1 minute from the bus/train station and 3 minutes from the New Coach Station. In the summer time the square is a center of activity with people enjoying the sunshine and in the winter it's where Galway's Christmas Market takes place. Tribes free walking tours run daily and leave from the square.
