Galway City is the capital of the West of Ireland, a thriving modern city with a university, Institute of Technology, shipping port and airport. It has also become an important centre for promoting the arts and culture. Although it has recently been classed as Europes fastest growing city, it still manages to retain much of its olde worlde medieval charm. Galway city provides an excellent base from which to discover the breathtaking beauty offered by the Connemara and Aran Islands to the West, Lough Corrib to the north and the Burren in Co. Clare to the south. Galway is a place of contrasts. A medieval city, rich in heritage and tradition, it now hosts some of the leading high technology industries that have driven the unparalleled growth in our economy.
