What to expect

Hop on this City Sightseeing bus tour across the beautiful City of Tribes and explore the West of Ireland with unlimited hop-on and off access to the tour.

Start off at Eyre Square, a lovely public park where there’s always something going on. Once you’ve hopped on board you’ll head towards the Spanish Arch, two remaining arches that were part of the extension of the city wall, built in the 16th century. Don’t be fooled by its name, until this day there’s no known relationship between the Spanish and the building of these arches. Also located on this stop is the Galway City Museum, which includes a collection of artifacts related mainly to the fishing industry -consistent with the city traditions- and a dedicated medieval section.

Hop back on and you’ll head towards the beautiful Salthill Village and Promenade, where you can enjoy a nice stroll by the sea or continue on board to enjoy the view of the Aran Islands to the right and Galway City to the left. As you head towards the Newcastle quarter you’ll be able to visit a must-see: Galway Cathedral. Head inside and enjoy the beautiful architecture before wrapping up with this fun tour around a city full of color and culture.
