Galway Self Catering Guide

Galway is a large county divided into two contrasting regions by the expanse of Lough Corrib. To the west, lying between the lake and the Atlantic, is Connemara - a region of superb scenic grandeur dominated by the rocky mountain range known as the Twelve Bens. Connemara has inspired many famous paintings, and a tour of the district is a memorable experience.

A great many of the inhabitants are Irish speakers, and much of the ancient Gaelic culture is preserved.

Galway City is an important tourist centre and a gateway to the scenic areas of the county. Originally a Gaelic settlement, it was quickly adopted by the Normans as their primary Western trading city. The Spanish and French sailed their galleons to Galway for hundreds of years trading their wines and brandies for metals and wools from Ireland. Galway still has a very obvious merchant town feel with the city centre a warren of narrow lanes and paved street packed with interesting pubs and shops.
