Essentials in Galway
Galway Promenade: The Promenade in Salthill is the best place to enjoy the best of summer's day. When the sun is out, you'll see practically the whole city out here enjoying the weather on rollerblades or jogging, some even diving into the freezing waters of the Atlantic.
Galway Atlantaquaria: This is a must if you're interested in the ocean and its creatures. It doesn't house the usual aquarium collection. It features fish and creatures you'll find just off the local coast.
Shopping at Galway Market: Year round this market is the best place to pick up a souvenir or two while visiting Galway. In Christmas the market is especially popular. Local artisans and hand crafters sell their wares here.
