Wild Atlantic Way
Keep Discovering Galway & Claddagh with us!
Live Like a Local With Our Fisherman’s Fab Five!
Along the 1,600 mile long coastal route of west Ireland, that is the Wild Atlantic Way, discover Galway, the mid-point. Galway, where the power of the Atlantic ocean has carved out a rugged and deeply rich terrain – mountains, cliffs, islands, beaches and of course the famous Galway Bay.
Experience the outstanding views of the Burren to the south, the Aran Islands to the west and the Connemara mountains to the north, from the best viewpoint – out on Galway Bay. No trip to Galway is complete without one of our tours, but let us show you our city from the eyes of a local and give you our fisherman’s fab five on things to do and where to eat in Galway and beyond!

Fisherman’s Fab Five – Food and Drink
Not sure if it’s the sea air or just those male genetics but I am always hungry and love my food as much as I love my cupán tae. In fact, there is a pizza named after the Oliver’s – try it!

Claddagh, our home, is an ancient fishing village made famous worldwide for the Claddagh Ring and the Galway Hooker. It sits right in the heart of the vibrant and friendly Galway City, where the river Corrib meets Galway Bay.
Many attractions and sights around the City and into the country side are accessible within a day’s journey. We hope you appreciate and enjoy all Galway has to offer as much as we do!
