There’s a whole range of outdoor activities you can do and all against the cold backdrop of the Autumnal Wild Atlantic Way and some of the most stunning views you’ll ever see.
For starters, just beyond our bustling city is one of the most stunning natural landscapes in the world with beautiful scenic walks and breath-taking views of Galway Bay and beyond made only more beautiful by the early sunsets which Autumn brings. We are also right beside the rugged beauty of Connemara and the spectacular wonders of the world-famous Wild Atlantic Way. Lined with rugged cliffs and crashing waves, driving along it is an adventure in itself.
From swimming and surfing to golfing, horse-riding and fishing, there is a huge selection of the most fun activities to do, so whatever floats your boat, you’ll find it in Galway, athough the water can be cold as it drifts in from the Atlantic.
There are supercool food trails and fascinating walking tours of the city available all through the Autumn and Winter months, as well as guided boat trips around Galway Bay where you can learn about the heritage and diverse natural habitats of the region. You can also avail of the unique opportunity to sail with the famous Galway Hookers or take a cruise out to the enchanting Aran Islands.
