As one of the most popular cities in the Republic of Ireland, it’s an easy option to head for Travelodge’s Galway hotel and remain in the city throughout your stay – but with so much on offer in County Galway as a whole, why not head outside of the city limits to explore it?

Take a look of at the cheap hotels online in the area and if you feel a road trip coming on, you know you’ll be safe with a hotel to stay in. After all, it only takes a couple of hours to drive cross-country to Dublin, never mind the attractions you will see on the way. Otherwise, stick within County Galway and check out some of these fabulous activities and places to see.

Kylemore Abbey

Known as Ireland’s most romantic castle, it’s a perfect place to visit with your loved one. Valentine’s Day is coming up – why not head over to Galway for a romantic treat and include this in your itinerary?

It’s located in Connemara and is the number one visitor’s attraction in the west of Ireland. With some excellent opportunities for some spectacular photographs, as well as woodland walks, beautiful architecture and tea rooms serving delectable homemade delights, you can enjoy many an hour here.
