Galway has been voted one of the best cities in the world to visit by readers of the popular Condé Nast Traveller magazine.
In the annual Reader’s Choice Awards, Galway placed at #7 on the list of The Best Small Cities in the World 2022.
“A popular home base for day trips to the Aran Islands or the Cliffs of Moher, Galway is a worthy destination in its own right.”
“The bustling university town in Western Ireland blends the historic—you’ll see remnants of medieval stone walls weaving through downtown—with the contemporary, and its thriving art and music communities earned the city the title of European Capital of Culture in 2020.”
“Its vibrant food scene spans from pubs to Michelin-starred restaurants, with plenty of fresh seafood thanks to the city’s location between the River Corrib and Galway Bay, and its wide range of lodging options includes cozy B&Bs and the avant-garde g Hotel and Spa.”
Galway was the only Irish city to make the cut on either of the lists of 10 Big & Small Cities beloved by tourists across the world.
