This is a beautiful place to visit in Ireland. A definite must see! If you are planning a trip to the Republic of Ireland, must sure this is where you go. While there, take a day trip to Connamara or the Cliffs of Mohrer. If you have time to do both, do it! They are both worth it, and if you buy them together, you save a bit of money. I recommend going with the Galway City Tour Company. They have friendly, knowledgable staff and really take you into the heart of Ireland.
I know that I will go back to Galway, it is my favorite place in Ireland!
