Galway Tours with Great British Trips
At the mouth of Galway Bay is the picturesque and lively city of Galway. Now one of the fastest growing cities in Europe, it was originally a small fishing village with a strategic coastal location and natural harbour area. Galway has changed considerably over the last few years and the city now enjoys a fascinating juxtaposition of new and ancient architecture, but the city still features many relics of its medieval past and is worth taking time to explore. The centre of the city is conveniently compact enough to walk around comfortably.
