Galway is considered the cultural heart of Ireland and a lively port city in the west of the country. Since the 1990s the city has enjoyed a major upswing in terms of population growth and increasing economic and cultural importance. The city’s centuries-old history, its thriving cultural scene and its character as a seaport offer an ambience that is ideal for the myCityHunt scavenger hunt in Galway.
Galway has been named European Capital of Culture in 2020 for good reason. Throughout the year there are several music and art festivals that attract many visitors to Ireland’s third largest city. Live music and art performances in the streets of Galway create a unique charm that you will enjoy during your Galway scavenger huntIn Galway and Irish customs are held in high regard: the city is home to the largest Irish speaking community in the country: There is hardly anywhere else where you can get as close to the Irish dialect, music and dance tradition as in Galway!
Galway also owes its special charm to its location on the coast with its port located close to the city centre. The course of the River Corrib and the various canals provide a unique character, which is enhanced by numerous green spaces and parks.
History has left many traces in Galway as well: Whether it is Lynch’s Castle or the remains of the ancient city walls with the Spanish Arch, which dates back to the 16th century - Galway’s history is omnipresent in the city centre. You too can savor the city’s historical charm by taking part in our Galway scavenger hunt, which is a fun way to experience the city.
