Galway's West End
For many Galwegians, the West End is the real Galway. Sitting just west of the River Corrib, the cluster of cafes, bistros, pubs and independent shops has an even more bohemian vibe than the rest of the city (which is saying something). Begin explorations by strolling over Wolfe Tone Bridge, cutting right up Raven Tce, into Upper Dominick St and on from there.
