Alternative Port:  Rossaveal   - click for cruises that visit this port.

The city of Galway on the west coast of Ireland is both the centre of the Gaelic-speaking regions in the West and a lively university city. Originally a fishing village, in the 13th and 14th centuries Welsh and Norman families arrived seeking shelter within the walls. Galway then developed as a major seaport and centre of trade with Europe. These early settlers were the antecedents of the so called 14 tribes who dominated Galway's development into an independent city state with a merchant oligarchy. The once walled city retains its medieval charm and is a warren of narrow winding streets. Sites of interest include the remains of a Franciscan friary (1296) and St. Nicholas' Church dating from 1320. From Galway you can visit the wild and beautiful Connemara countryside, the rocky landscape of the Burren or Thoor Ballylee, the tower house that was the summer home of W B Yeats. Ships for the Arran Islands also leave from here.

After the building of its walls by Anglo-Norman settlers (circa 1270), it developed as a trading port with Spain. The town was captured by Parliamentary forces during the English Civil War and again during the campaigns of William III.
