After: Galway, Ireland
Galway City is a thriving, bohemian, cultural city on the western coast of Ireland. Along with being a popular seaside destination with beautiful beaches and long winding promenade, it also has a buzzing cosmopolitan city center. The city is a joy to explore with its labyrinthine cobbled streets, colorful shop facades, and busy café and bar culture. A visit to Galway City Museum or the National Aquarium will happily fill a rainy afternoon. On sunny days, your options are endless. The clean beaches in Salthill draw crowds of swimmers and the city streets come to life with buskers and street performers. The unspoilt Burren region across Galway Bay in Clare is worth a visit. The weathered limestone landscape holds traces of the past with megalithic tombs, ringforts, cairns, holy wells, souterrains and stone walls scattered throughout the area to explore. You’ll find plenty to do at night in Galway, whether it's drama, traditional music, late night clubs, or simply soaking up the vibe on the bustling city streets! The Town Hall Theater is the best option for seeing a visiting production company’s latest dramatic performance.
