Galway Mini Guide

Galway lies amidst some incredible scenery being close to the Bay of Galway and the River Corrib. More than 70,000 people live there in what is the only city in the Province of Connacht. Due to the nearby North Atlantic, Galway is famous for having a mild yet temperate climate. However it may not feel very temperate to visitors and that is why having your own rental vehicle to explore is very appealing.

To get to Galway you have to fly to Carnmore Airport and the airport has connections with cities across the entire UK as well as Amsterdam and Brittany. You will need to have a hire car in this part of the world as the airport is approximately a 10 minute drive from Galway and there is no decent public transportation with bus routes being intermittent to say the least.
