The area of Galway is split between a buzzing city centre with plenty of shops, restaurants, bars and theatres, and the rugged natural landscape of the west coast; perfect for water sports, walking, cycling and pony trekking.
The rugged scenery, clear waters, expansive mountain ranges and winds sweeping in off the Atlantic make the West of Ireland perfect for lovers of the outdoors and adventure of all kinds and a touch of adrenaline is the perfect accompaniment to the breathtaking views. One of the best ways to appreciate the incredible scenery is to get out there and be a part of it. Whether you are a fair weather adventurer just hoping for a little fresh air, or a dedicated adrenaline junkie in search of your next thrill, you’ll have a choice of outdoor activities on your doorstep.
