rugby weekend

by breadofhevan

Hi all, I'm one of a group of 18 welsh lads just returned from a weekend in Dublin where it was mad, there were more Welsh than Irish in Dublin and although we had a good time it would have been nice to meet some Irish people. It has been suggested that we try Galway the next time, what was it like there this weekend? would we get a good welcome in Galway??

Hi there,

Galway is a way better than Dublin in terms of the "real Ireland feeling". The City is just beutifull I'm sure you will enjoy. If you want to watch rugby, the best address will be "The Kings Head" or "Ti na Nog" both located quiet central on the shop street, you can't miss it.

I used to live in Galway for the last 5 years and I'm telling you: You guys wil LOVE IT!!! Definitely the place to be in Ireland.

Don't miss Salthill!

Do you mean that you want to go Galway on a Rugby international or just a general weekend. Whilst other cities like Galway and Kilkenny are excellent options, I'm surprised that you didn't come across some 'real Irish' establishments in Dublin on match day such as O'Neill's tavern off Dame Street and the North Star hotel beside Connolly Railway Station. To savour the real Ireland you have to go on the weekend of a Hurling or Gaelic football final.

Thanks for the reply, we want to come on the iternational weekend, we found Irish pubs but they were full of the Welsh. We want to go away to meet people from Ireland not Swansea where we are from

I don't think you are ever going to do much socialising with Irish people while you travel in a group of 18. This is an honest answer becaue I think there's no point in being hypocritical. Weekends of big sporting fixtures obviously people are going to gravitate to the people supporting their side. A group of 18 people drinking in a pub and obviously Welsh supporters, is highly unlikely to be conducive to much mingling with the locals. At the worst end of this scale ( as sometimes happens ) there could actually be confrontations. If you really wnt to meet Irish people then my suggestion is to come on a non-match weekend and not with a group.

Galway is a very friendly city and there are always loads of foreign visitors there but again in a group of 18 , I think you would find the same scenario as before.

I hope you enjoy your next trip to Ireland and that you don't have a problem with someone being honest with you :))

Travel Tips for Galway

You must stay awhile! Galway...

by Bodhran

You must stay awhile! Galway is a city to explore...don't just drive through. Much has changed since I first visited in the 70's so I don't have a specific stop to recommend. Don't miss a sunset on Galway Bay! It IS all it's hyped to be! The charm of the people and friendliness.

Connemara region

by Diana_h

You can take a tour to the Connemara region from Galway - there are several tour companies that do this trip, or you can take your own car.
Connemara is a beautiful, wild region where you can find bogs,lonely valleys, mountains and small lakes..
Check out my Connemara travelogue for more pictures.


by neilmcaliece about Quays

Live music venue upstairs from the main Quays bar.
Very big pub styled on an old church, they even have a large pipe organ (decorative) onthe back wall of the stage - pretty impressive.
They also have lots of decent bands playing here - some of them aren't so good though, depands what music you like. Anything, but wear shoes, no sports shoes.

Ohhh, soo good!!

by Jen.W about McDonagh's

Delicious fish served up in a nice, crisp, Guinness batter. Apparently, they buy the fish daily, off the boats. If you're looking for fish and chips when you're in Galway, check out McDonagh's!! I ordered the cod, and chips!! The servings seem huge. I enjoyed the crisp batter - more often than not, here in Calgary, you get a soggy batter...not at McDonagh's!!

Klymore Abbey

by jckim

Picturesque Kylemore Abbey, the home of the Benedictine nuns, stands at the edge of the lake surrounded by woodlands. The gothic castle was built by Mitchell Henry, an English businessman in 1865. After the tragic death of his wife about a decade later he lost interest in the estate and it was eventually bought by the Benedictine order after fleeing their convent in Ypres during World War One. The grounds and part of the Abbey are open to the public. Kylemore Abbey is a must for tourist.
