Discover Galway

The County of Galway is split between a buzzing city centre, filled with shops, restaurants, bars, theatres, quaint cafés, and pubs filled with pints and craic, and the rugged natural landscape of the west coast. Situated in the city, Imperial Hotel is walking distance from the best nightlife. However, it’s easy to venture further afield and experience water sports, walking, cycling and pony trekking. Buses depart from Eyre Square regularly – all you have to do is enjoy every minute!
