The second largest county in Ireland after Cork, Galway boasts a vibrant and attractive County City and some of, if not the most, stunning scenery on offer in the whole of the country. Bordering Roscommon and Offaly in the East the county stretches westward towards the wild Atlantic coast, the scenery becoming more interesting as it does so. The highlight of the county must surely be the rugged, evocative mountains and lakes of Connemara National Park. A drive through the scenic Lough Inagh Valley provides perhaps the best glimpse of what this area has to offer. The town of Clifden offers a great base for exploring and a drive or cycle along the stunning Sky Road is not to be missed.

Off the southwesterly tip of Connemara National Park one finds the Arran Islands, accessible either from Galway town or Rossaveal. These provide a good daytrip or short break destination with great walking and cycling trails, Further north there are the islands of Inishbofin and Inishturk, also worth a trip from the Cleggan peninsula. If all this stunning scenery is proving overwhelming then why not simply sit back and relax in one of the pubs of Galway City, which regularly host traditional Irish music sessions.
