County Galway sits in the middle of the country on the western coast. With its lively eponymous city, small traditional Irish villages, and stunning countryside, it offers a varied landscape and culture. Galway City exudes energy as a university town, with pubs on every corner and events and festivals happening year-round. The county has successfully kept the Irish language alive with about 30,000-40,000 Irish speakers, of whom nearly 24,000 are native Irish speakers. Venture outside of the main city to the Aran Islands to discover an Ireland lost in time.
