Clifden — 2 nights

The town of Clifden represents a beloved Victorian style and is known for its position along County Galway's coast.
Kick off your visit on the 29th (Sat): explore the activities along Killary Fjord, then pause for some serene contemplation at Gothic Chapel, and then admire the natural beauty at Kylemore Abbey & Victorian Walled Garden. On the next day, steep yourself in history at Marconi Station, tour the pleasant surroundings at Dog's Bay Beach, then relax and rejuvenate at Connemara Seaweed Baths, and finally stop by O`Dalaigh Jewellers.

Plan my Clifden trip by asking Klarna Trips to come up with tips and suggestions.

City of the Tribes

A major hub for visitors exploring Ireland's western regions, Galway serves as a city of art and culture, renowned for its vibrant lifestyle and numerous festivals.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Saint Nicholas' Collegiate Church and Aughnanure Castle. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Riverside Walk and The Irish Workhouse Centre. Get out of town with these interesting Galway side-trips: Portumna Castle (in Portumna) and Gort (Thoor Ballylee - Yeats Museum, Kilmacduagh Tower, &more). The adventure continues: gain some tasty knowledge on a distillery tour, explore the world behind art at Connemara Marble Visitor's Center, see the interesting displays at The Legend of the Claddagh Ring, and get to know the fascinating history of Salthill Promenade.

Landmarks · Nightlife · Gardens
County Galway sits in the middle of the country on the western coast. With its lively eponymous city, small traditional Irish villages, and stunning countryside, it offers a varied landscape and culture. Galway City exudes energy as a university town, with pubs on every corner and events and festivals happening year-round. The county has successfully kept the Irish language alive with about 30,000-40,000 Irish speakers, of whom nearly 24,000 are native Irish speakers. Venture outside of the main city to the Aran Islands to discover an Ireland lost in time.
