Galway is a county filled to the brim with culture, history, atmosphere, and most importantly, craic. There’s a reason it was awarded the title of the 2020 European Capital of Culture and was named as one of Lonely Planet’s Top 10 cities in the world to visit!

From art exhibitions, performances, museums, churches and stunning views, Galway is packed with activities to suit every budget. Check out the beautiful Galway Cathedral, the Claddagh Ring Museum and the Galway City Museum, and get to know County Galway with their exhibitions on prehistoric and medieval Galway, the Atlantic Ocean and scientific discoveries.

For a taste of the local culture, sit in on a trad session in one of Galway's pubs. Traditional music is considered the ultimate Irish experience, and with good cause. Places like Monroe's Tavern in Galway city are always likely to have a session. And while the pints of Guinness aren’t free, one or two while you enjoy the music won’t break the bank.

Away from the busy environment of the city, you can enjoy gorgeous views of Galway Bay on the easygoing walk on the Salthill Promenade. Galway city itself is a great walk too. Filled with pubs, shops and cafes, as well as musicians and street performers, the cobbled streets of Galway are a journey unto themselves.

Galway is filled with options for the more thrifty traveller. Ireland’s largest medieval parish church, St Nicholas’ Church, holds free music concerts as well as meditation groups if you want to unplug from the bustling city. If you want to immerse yourself in nature, why not visit the lush Merlin Woods. Bursting with hazel woodland, beech, and oak trees and home to several rare species of plants and wildlife, it’s an experience that money can’t buy.

Does our Community have any other ideas of how to enjoy Galway on a budget?

I also recommend a walk around the National University of Galway campus. NUIG is one of the most beautiful campuses in Ireland and even features a small natural history museum that has some material from Charles Darwin!
