This is a beautiful look at the water in Ireland. Plenty to see and do around here, as well as just stopping to look at the bay.

The Bay itself is clean and fresh. On a sunny day, there's a developed pathway that runs much of the way around the bay and is worthy of a walk / run / bicycle in the fresh air to see the statues and etc around the way.

Loved the Bay Area. So much to see and lots of places nearby to shop and to eat. Galway is a beautiful area to visit and should not be missed. There is a hop on hop off bus you can ride to see the sites and decide where you want to hop off. Ticket is good for 48 hours!

A stunning bay to visit, well looked after and a joy to photograph. The river was running fast into the sea on the day we went and the clouds were low and heavy which gave it a very stormy atmosphere. The colour of the pretty houses across the bay made a great backdrop whilst the seagulls screeched overhead.

Galway Bay is simply breathtaking. By looking at it, I felt the sea could not be bluer. The docked boats rendered this place even more picturesque. Overall, I think this is Galway's best spot.

Just spent two nights in this fabulous hotel, amazing views from our bedroom window, The sound of the waves crashing against the sea wall and the sound of sea gulls was just so lovely ( when we had the windows open)
