Tour description

We're a small, local collection of Tour Guides who try to mix history, legend, conversation, laughter and our own experiences into one eventful walk around Galway City.

Galway is a city of arts, theatre, history, and storytelling, and we will show you all these sides of our city. We will walk around the old medieval city and try to tell and debunk as many myths and legends as we can!

The tour will also unfold Irish history from a west coast perspective and explain Galway's place in Ireland. Lastly, the tour is a great way to orient oneself in the city and find out about what else besides the main attractions the city has to offer. In a city of festivals, a local guide can come in quite handy for getting this information!

We will visit all the following sites and talk about their place in Galway's past and present: Eyre Square - Galway's Medieval Walls - Lynch's Castle - St. Nicholas's Church - Kirwan's Lane - St. Augustine's Church - Lynch's Window - Quay Street - The Spanish Arch.

It was a beautiful day in Galway. Brian was a young man with fabulous knowledge of Galway. He was funny, and delivered his material in a loud and clear manner. I would definitely recommend, the walk was easy and the sights showed the beauty and history of Galway
