Another gem in Galway's crown is the little seaside village of Salthill 2km away where Galway Bay can be seen in its loveliest shades of blue and green, gently lapping against the beach with the Clare hills smudged like an impressionistic painting in the morning mist along her horizon. The famous Aran Islands located 30KM from the coast of Galway city is a must on a visit to the west see www.queenofaran2.com for timetable and sailing.
Each year as winter is barely over, Galway slips into party form. From the city's February music festival to the two Oyster Festivals which close the season in September the parties continue at the rate of at least one a month. These events cover everything from racing to literature, taking in country music, all kinds of arts and of course, lots of oysters on the way. When it comes to sports, Galway me and women always feature in the national final stages in both hurling and Gaelic football - this is a welcome boast to the city and creates a marvelous party atmosphere win lose or draw!
The Arts Festival now in its 28th year is a well established international event and each year it offers many new and exciting things, this year 2004 is no exception and a full list of events a can be reviewed on the link below. Almost everybody has heard of the famous Galway Races which take place every summer and autumn. These are long established and perennially popular. In recent years they have been joined by activities which attract many willing participants, some local, more who come to Galway because there is energy in the city which has been harnessed to make it one of the country's liveliest spots.
While you are visiting the West of Ireland, an ideal way to visit or view the main sights and attractions it has to offer - without fear of getting lost or missing out on anything - is by means of an organised tour.

So whether by luxury coach (by timetable) or indeed by taxi (at your leisure), the wonders of the West await you. Just sit back and be taken on a journey of a lifetime.
