Overview

Come stroll with us through the heart of medieval Galway and explore its rich history, all the while soaking up the culture and hospitality of our vibrant city. By choosing the Walk About Galway Guided Walking Tour visitors will get an insight into 800 years of history and more, from its humble beginnings and a fortified fishing village to becoming an imposing medieval walled city ruled by a power...ful and often ruthless merchant class. Visitors will trace the ebb and flow of Galway’s fortunes through economic boom and bust, plague, siege, fire and famine all in a two hour tour. As part of the tour, participants will be escorted to one Galway’s finest drinking establishments where we can sample a complimentary beverage, while Derek your guide will share a story or two. What a way to pass two hours of the day
