Galway is a great city and county to visit and spend a few days seeing all the attractions, historic sites and beautiful scenic areas. Galway is located in the west of Ireland. Galway city has loads of Hotels to choose from and there are plenty of hotels outside in the city in what we call the county in Ireland or County Galway, the city is known as the city of the tribes because back in the old days Galway used to be ruled by families or tribes.

There are loads to keep you busy for a few days or a week or so, so you want to base you’re in the Galway while travelling around the Midwest of Ireland, visiting Limerick, Cork, Clare and Kerry depending on your plans.

The beautiful thing about Galway is that it’s not a huge city and that makes it easy to get around and relatively short distances between tourist sites and attractions.

When choosing a hotel, location can be n important one and certain facilities like a swimming pool or wheelchair accessible. You may need large family rooms to cater for your large family. I have put together a list of solid hotels with a whole range of services and options available!!!
