the many wonderful restaurants to choose from. Enjoy a round of golf in Salthill or take in a spot of culture in one of the cities many museums. Don’t miss an
evening’s entertainment enjoying a pint of Guinness and listening to live Irish folk music in the Galway pubs - it’s an essential part of your holiday in Ireland!
