    Description

    Learn about the history and culture of the beautiful City of Tribes. Listen to our informative audio guides while we spin you around the most important sights aboard our stylish red double deckers! The City Sightseeing route covers 8 fascinating attractions. We departure from Eyre Square, so take a while before hopping on the bus to take in the atmosphere of this lively public park. And don't miss the Browne Doorway! The Browne's are known as one of the Tribes of Galway, families who were prosperous, wealthy merchants, well politically connected in Galway in 1130 AD.

    Once you are done here and ready to get started, hop on the Bus Tour and head towards bus stop 3, the Spanish Arch: Two remaining arches that were part of the extension of the city wall, built in the 16th century. Truth is, it is not clear where the name comes from, as there is not know relationship between the Spanish and the building of these arches. Today, the area is home to the Galway City Museum, with a collection of artefacts related mainly to the fishing industry -consistent with the city traditions- and a dedicated medieval section.

    Bus stops 4 and 5 await you for a nice stroll around Salthill Village and Promenade. This village by the sea went from a small fishing village into a thriving, busy modern resort, and it continues to grow and develop. Take in the marine breeze and enjoy the view of the Aran Islands to the right and Galway City to the left. Don't forget to have your camera ready! We will then drive you through Newcastle quarter as you enjoy the 360° panoramic views from our open top bus, taking in the historical heritage of this beautiful medieval city. Bus stop 9 is a must-visit: Galway Cathedral. Entrance is free, so hop off and be amazed at its stunning architecture and colourful inside.
