Galway (Contae na Gaillimhe) is a county in West Ireland in the province of Connacht. This county is known for the wilderness of its landscapes with small villages throughout the territory. The Atlantic Ocean, off the dramatic coast of the county, is studded with numerous islands, the most well known being the Aran Islands. The east side of the county is bathed by large lakes (loughs), while on the west side, especially in the geographical area of Connemara, there are countless waterbodies. Galway, the lively capital city, is the meeting point for traditional music events and is ideal for strolling along the streets, as in Long Walk, visiting a pub or two, and going on a shopping spree on Shop Street. Popular activities in the county include fishing, water sports, hiking and horse riding. Explore this beautiful county live on Webcamtaxi!
