What better way to get to know the coastal city of Galway and look for the famous young girl with black hair and blue eyes (the mythical Galway Girl), than through a free walking tour in Galway.
What to see in Galway, the seaside city that sings to its girl
Galway is the most important city in the western part of Ireland. Despite this, it maintains a special charm and a small town atmosphere, which gives it a magical touch. Not in vain in the past Galway was simply a small fishing village.
Walking through its streets you will find houses of all colors, pubs on almost every corner, this is Ireland! medieval-looking areas and stores of all kinds, many of them old and reminiscent of the past.
Through the Free Walking Tour of Galway in English offered by our friends from Guruwalk (from Mapa Ireland we can assure you that it is a magnificent tour), you will find a lively city full of young people and you will visit emblematic points of the city such as the Spanish Arch, Eyre Square, the Collegiate Church of St. Nicholas, the harbor area and the lively and picturesque central streets full of pubs where rivers of Guinness flow.
Of course, you will learn about the story of the famous Galway Girl, the young girl who inspired Steve Earley’s song that is now part of Irish folklore (no, it’s not Ed Sheeran’s song, ask your guide what he thinks about it). Will you be able to find her and take a picture with her? As a hint, we’ll tell you that it never moves from its place… 😉
