What people are saying about Galway

We rented electric bikes. I am so glad that we got them instead of regular bikes. There are hills to climb and if you have a hard time riding bikes, it would not be enjoyable. The history is phenomenal. You could easily spend a couple of days here. I would definitely do it again.

Everything on time, no issue with seating. Toilet facilities clean, cold and hot drinks served. Very enjoyable trip. Highly recommend, traveled with my elderly parents no problems at all.

It is pure and incredible beauty. I advise you to rent a bike for the day, the price is more than correct and enjoy this unparalleled place :)
