Explore Ireland’s culture by enjoying a pot of Irish stew, and exploring Ireland’s lush lands and regal castles. Travelers will connect with their Gaelic Roots on Insight Vacations’ immersive experiences as they take in Ireland’s rich culture, landscapes, and culinary delights.
Galway, which was named by Lonely Planet as one of the top places to visit in the world in 2020, is one of the cultural destinations highlighted on Insight Vacations’ Ireland itineraries.
According to the European Capital of Culture, visitors to Galway can expect to experience the city and county’s best year yet, with a year-long program of extraordinary street spectacle, live and digital art, as well as world-class music, theatre and dance.
Insight Vacations wants travelers to observe Galway with experiences that go beyond the ordinary. On Insight’s journeys to Ireland, guests are invited to meet and interact with locals, and explore various establishments that offer authenticity, as well as fun.
Here are several Insight trips that immerse guests into the unique aspects of Galway:
- Country Roads of Ireland (12 Days): Travelers will get the chance to enjoy views of the Clare Coast before a delightful drive through the strange, rocky landscape of the Burren to Galway Bay. They will spend a day at their leisure to relax and enjoy the city—perhaps joining an Optional Experience to the Aran Islands—a genuine highlight of the Wild Atlantic Way. With their cliffs and spectacular coastal views, the islands are a true Irish experience.
- Focus on Ireland (7 Days): Lead by Insights’ Travel Director, guests will explore the infamous Lynch Memorial and the Church of St. Nicholas, where Christopher Columbus reputedly prayed before his discovery of America. They will also see the aged Spanish Arch and Eyre Square, dedicated to the late U.S. President, John F. Kennedy.
- Irish Elegance (8 Days): Guests will journey the City of the Tribes and visit Galway’s stunning cathedral. They can take in the beautiful scenery during their 2-night stay at the Connemara Coast Hotel, which is spectacularly set on the shores of Galway Bay.
