Galway Etymology - Where Does the Name Galway Come From? 

You can also hear the name Gaillimh, it’s the Irish word for Galway. It means "stony" as in "stony river". Gaillimh is one of the hundreds of rivers in Ireland. 

What Is Galway famous for?

Galway Location

Galway is 209km away from Dublin. The drive from Galway to Dublin is two hours and eight minutes. It is quite long but if we’ll give you the secret to turning the tables to your side. You just have to take the road by making some detours while driving and you will see a side of Ireland that no one has ever seen. The buses and the trains also take about the same amount of time the car takes to reach Dublin, around two hours and 30 minutes, with a cost starting from €13. 

Perfect Place for Student Accommodation in Galway 

You will be going to the destination that many thinks, is the best place to visit in the whole of Ireland. Galway is commonly referred to as the “Cultural Heart of Ireland” as it is still holding on to the Irish language, songs, music, dance, and all the traditions. Galway is known for having the most fun in Ireland, or as Irish people say the most craíc. Two of the biggest festivals they have are Galway International Arts Festival, with a variety of events up to your desire, and Galway Race Week, the greatest most iconic race meetings in the world. There are also few well-known ones like the Galway International Oyster and Seafood Festival, which is a call to all foodies out there, it is a must-go. By all means, Galway proves itself as the festival capital of Ireland with an average of 122 festivals per year.

Galway Climate

Weather and Temperature

Galway is located on the west coast of Ireland, that’s why you’ll find the climate to be a little oceanic. In summers, it is quite mild and a bit rainy. In winters, it is also mild and a lot rainy. Humidity will be your new best friend. If you are planning to travel inside Galway, August will be the right month for that as it is the warmest month with a temperature of 18°C (64°F). If you are not a big fan of cold weather, we recommend avoiding travelling in January as it is the coldest month of the year, with a temperature of 7°C (44°F). 

What to Pack and Galway Local Timing

You are about to face lots of humidity, so prepare lightweight clothing that won't cling to your skin. Also, prepare yourself for an incredibly cold winter, and pack your heaviest clothes. Don’t forget your umbrella, rain boots and maybe bring some waterproofs if you have. The local time zone is GMT+1, keep it in mind when booking your travels and student accommodation in Galway.

Famous Food in Galway

If you are one of those bread lovers, your dream of being surrounded by bread is about to come true. Galway is full of many kinds of delicate bread. Soda Bread and Barmbrack are the most popular. These two with their sweet flavour and dried fruits fillings are just right! You’re probably tired from all that sugar, then try some slow-cooked pots to warm your soul, we recommend Coddle and the famous Irish stew, the true meaning of warm delicacy. The last thing is Galway Oysters, they have a whole festival for that, so you probably will taste it one way or another!

Transportation In Galway 

Galway has a 10/10 local bus service. Buses run from the Bus Éireann Travel Centre or Eyre Square to various suburbs, including Salthill and the Galway Bay coastline. We recommend the Leap Card as a fat way to pau instead of struggling with all the cash. It’s usable on all bus services, but not on train services. Galway’s Suburban Rail has a rail line connecting Galway and the satellite towns of Oranmore and Athenry.
