'Galway city of the tribes', located a the mouth of the river Corrib; on Europe's Atlantic seaboard; one of Europe's most westerly cities; centre of excellence for marine research; home of the Marine Institute; national research vessel base; two renowned third level centres of marine learning; readily accessible through Galway national airport, Shannon and Dublin international airports and by road and rail.

Historically Galway had important trade links with continental Europe and Spain in particular. The busy port area once saw large sailing ships bound for the Americas - Christopher Columbus was one of its first European tourists. Today Galway is a centre for the high-tech and medical industries.

Galway city is seen as Ireland 's capital of the arts and hosts lots of colourful festivals and events throughout the year. With its cobbled streets and laid-back attitude, it is an ideal destination for a city break.

Travel Accommodation
In the earlier days of holiday travel you had no choice in reality but to leave the arrangement of almost all trips abroad to the high street travel agents. Package tours where pretty much the only real choice for those on a budget but it did open the world of travel to families who would only ever have been able to afford holidays in their own country, much to the consternation of the local tourist boards and authorities.

Smoke Free Zone!

Ireland is now Europe 's first smoke free country! Since March 29th 2004 , a smoking ban in the work place has been in force. The primary purpose of the prohibition is to afford protection to workers and the public who are exposed to harmful environmental tobacco smoke. Galway pubs, night clubs, restaurants and cafés are now smoke free zones- although you will find that most venues have a designated outdoor smoking area. You can still smoke out of doors, in your hotel room, or in private accommodation.
