Eclectic, creative Galway

Here, a pub where musicians play reels all night is just as much a part of the local character as an avant-garde art show. That diverse, vibrant scene makes Galway this year’s European Capital of Culture—but the city packs plenty of traditional charm, too. Visit Galway in 2020 to see how the city celebrates its status as a cultural hub, and get your fill of classic Irish appeal. “Galway’s city center is wonderful with its quaint and charming atmosphere,” says Go Ahead staffer Whitney. “But you are truly won over at the Cliffs of Moher when you are standing on the edge of the world alongside your new best friends: cows.”


“Live music poured out onto the streets from the pubs. You can’t help but follow the music inside for a pint!”

— Amanda, Go Ahead staffer
