Description

Join me on a truly entertaining and engaging online experience to see and experience the history and culture of Galway. 

Visit Eyre Square, the focal point of the city which was gifted by Edward Eyre, the mayor of Galway to Galway city in 1710. Head to Lynch’s Castle, an excellent example of medieval architecture. Next, visit Bowling Green, the home of James Joyce’s wife, Nora Barnacle. Proceed to the Spanish Arch, so-called due to Galway’s merchant trade with Spain, whose Galleons often docked under its protection. Through the tour, you will get to hear interesting stories about James Joyce, 14 Tribes, & the romantic Claddagh Ring.

Colleen Joyce

I have been sharing my love for Ireland through tourism for over 20 years. A native of Connemara, my family has been in the tourism sector for centuries. I was lucky enough to attend the famous Kylemore Abbey school as a day student, and as a student standing on the bridge overlooking the abbey, I swore that one day I would be leading tours back to Kylemore Abbey & other beauty regions. I went on to study Tourism and later Eco-Tourism as my desire grew to see and preserve this beautiful landscape for future visitors.
