Other Info:
Galway has been named the friendliest city in the world and our students would all agree with this nomination! Situated on the spectacular Atlantic coast of Ireland, this small university city has 75,000 inhabitants, of which 20% are students, so there is a great atmosphere in the city all year round. Galway is not only famous for its friendly people, however – there are lots of other attractions, such as the Arts Festival, the Film Fleadh (Festival), the Galway Races and the Oyster Festival. Traditional Irish music can be heard all over town and our students love to listen to the musicians and also practise their Riverdance moves! With the world famous Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands and Connemara on our doorstep, there are a lot of beautiful sights to visit – come and see for yourself!
