Galway begins out as one of those simple fishing towns before gradually morphing into a center of commerce and tourism like many of Ireland’s quaint cities. In the year 1232, Galway became a walled town right after the area was captured by the Anglo-Normans led by Richard De Burgo, and it’s this that presents it a niche that no other city in Ireland can brag.
It makes Galway a perfect place for a summer holiday for this blend of culture, history, working-class fishing roots and, of course, some of the finest seafood in the world. With beautiful beaches and its long winding promenade, the Galway Travelodge hotel makes this go-to seaside destination -– an affordable, attractive candidate this summer.
If travelers want one anyway, then the Galway Arts Festival – Ireland’s leading arts’ festival – is a perfect one not only that all this means travelers don’t need an excuse to visit Galway. This festival holds together street performance, music, dancing, literary/children’s events and art exhibitions, first conducted in 1978. Recently played artists like David Byrne, Blondie, David Gray, Walker Evans, Brodsky String Quartet, Stephen Isserlis and Philip Glass expressing the sheer caliber of the artists on show.
Galway moves to buck that direction, while countless fishing towns aren’t known for their nightlife. Previously, though, and this might be the most difficult options of all, travelers are going to desire to sample some of Galway’s finest restaurants. A great all-rounder, The Quay Street Kitchen, with traditional Irish food, a brilliant wine list and healthier options for those who may have to devour a touch too much Guinness.
It’s also a must that travelers explore what’s in store outside the city and tour the beautiful countryside that wraps the city of Galway. One shouldn’t restrict the city-country as promoted rather take a look at what you might discover.
