EXAMPLE GALWAY ACTIVITIES

Guided City Walk Explore the Old Town and the most important sights in Galway during this tour through the Old Town

Evening of Irish music As the regional centre of Irish culture and folklore, Galway offers great insight into the country’s rich music scene, past and present. This evening together is a lively event that introduces Ireland’s most popular musical genres

Irish dancing show “Trad on the Prom” is a great musical & dance show that makes for perfect evening entertainment for the whole class and, at the same time, is a typically Irish event that you should not miss

Excursion Aran Islands A ferry takes you over to this picturesque, natural group of Islands, so that your excursion of Aran Islands can start. Once there, you will have the choice between going on a bike ride and exploring the island on foot

Evening of Irish dancing During the evening of Irish dancing you get to learn a couple of lively Irish dances, taught by a dance teacher

Daylong excursion through Western Ireland This excursion takes you to the Cliffs of Moher, Limerick and on a drive through the surrounding national park, which boasts a very beautiful natural landscape that is very distinctive of the “wild west” of the green island

A popular additional option: A round trip of 2 days at the beginning/end of your trip, including accommodation in select hostels or B&Bs and highlights, such as the Cliffs of Moher, Ring of Kerry, Limerick and St. John’s Castle, Rock of Cashel, Glendalough and Wicklow, as well as a visit paid to a typical working farm, where you get a tour and get to try local produce. There is also the possibility of visiting a university and meet local students and professors! We will gladly compile a detailed program for your journey, once you have gotten in touch with us!
