Join Jim Ward on an enjoyable walkabout of Galway’s medieval town. Find out about the world-famous Claddagh ring, ‘Humanity Dick’ Martin and Galway’s many festivals. Explore Galway’s unique Irish culture, its bi-lingual city status with Jim, a Gaeilgeóir (Irish speaker).
Along the way, visit iconic Galway landmarks such as Eyre Square, Lynch’s Castle, St Nicholas’ Church, The King’s Head pub, and Spanish Arch. Learn why they have such significance beyond Galway and Ireland.
Walk along the River Corrib, fastest flowing in Europe, to Galway Cathedral and university, or take Jim’s historic tour of 1916 Galway around the county.
Experience Galway, midpoint of the Wild Atlantic Way, capital of the province of Connacht and of the Gaeltacht where Irish is the predominant tongue, gateway to the West and to Connemara. Jim’s knowledge of Irish placenames is handy here…tá sé líofa sa teanga – he is fluent in Irish!
Enjoy a quick tour if you have an hour to spare, or take a full day out. Bain sult as turas san Iarthiar.
