Join the local festivities
As Ireland's cultural powerhouse, Galway has an event calendar packed with festivals and annual cultural celebrations that feature the diverse worlds of music, art, sport and food. Adrenalin junkies flock to the city in October for the Galway Races, while the Streets of Galway event and other mini-marathons draw participants and audiences from far and wide.
Culture vultures can catch the best independent productions at the Galway Film Fleadh, Ireland’s leading film festival, and can enjoy the full spectrum of the performing arts at the Galway Arts Festival, which includes music, dance, theatre and comedy. Foodies should keep the last weekend of September free for the Galway Oyster Festival, where everyone's able to sample the best catches from Galway Bay.
Under the sea at Galway Atlantaquaria
Ireland's National Aquarium makes for an entertaining and educational day out for those travelling with children or anyone with an interest in marine life. It's easy to spend an afternoon exploring the exhibitions, which are set across two floors and reveal the natural beauty and diversity of the region, from the Connemara mountain streams down to Galway Bay.
Watch Irish sharks at feeding time, get up close to seahorses, octopuses and stingrays, and feel free to hold starfish and giant crabs in the palm of your hand. The Aquarium's marine experts also host lively talks and workshops throughout the day.
