Overview of the tour in Galway

We're a small, local collection of Tour Guides who try to mix history, legend, conversation, laughter and our own idiosyncrasies 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 in dispensing 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
Lynch's Window
St. Nicholas's Church
Kirwan's Lane
The Latin Quarter
Quay Street
Blake's Castle
The Spanish Arch.

This activity includes:

  • Lynch's Castle
  • The Latin Quarter
  • The Browne Doorway
  • Eyre Square
  • Saint Nicholas' Collegiate Church
  • Spanish Arch
  • Lynch Memorial Window

Meeting point

Skeffington Arms on Eyre Square

On arrival

We start outside the Skeffington Arms Hotel and Bar on Eyre Square. It is the only bar on the pedestrian side of the square, so it is easy to find. Our sign is outside there and that is where you will meet the guide who will be wearing a maroon t-shirt and lanyard.

Things to note

Please note, We also cannot take groups of more than 8 people on our daily free walking tours as it changes the experience for other guests on the tour. Please do not book in a large group under separate names, contact us and we will find a way to accommodate you.

Also, in the off-season, we require 5 or more people to run the tour.

Free Cancellation

You are free to cancel a booking anytime. We kindly remind you to cancel bookings you cannot arrive for. Being reported as absent decreases your customer level points and the benefits you can enjoy.
