Galway City in detail


Galway's festivals mean accommodation fills far in advance, particularly on weekends: book ahead.

B&Bs line the major approach roads (College Rd, a 15-minute walk from the centre, has an especially high concentration). To take full advantage of Galway's tightly packed attractions, though, try for a room in the centre itself.

Most B&Bs on College Rd have on-site parking but few central accommodation providers do, although many offer good deals at car parks.
