We stayed at the Park House hotel here for 4 nights as Galway is conveniently located to take the tour up to Connemara and down to Cliffs of Moher.
Overall we really enjoyed Galway itself. Great little town with amazing food off of Quay street (especially Quay Street Kitchen).
We took a walking tour with Fiona the first night (found her on trip advisor), walked the hour or so up the Salthill prom - make sure to kick the wall! Stopped at Lonergan's pub halfway back in Salthill and got our ears talked off by some locals. Fun times! We'll miss Galway.
