The picturesque town of Galway is known for its culture and local cuisine. Owing to its proximity to the River Corrib, Galway grew from a small fishing village into a significant city in the Middle Ages. Galway earned the nickname "City of the Tribes" during the Middle Ages because of the 14 affluent merchant families who governed the city. The National University of Ireland, Galway is regarded as one of the country's top universities. Galway is renowned for its traditional Irish music and hosts several music festivals annually, such as the Galway International Arts Festival and the Galway Oyster Festival. Galway is the only city in Ireland with street signs in both Irish and English, as both languages are recognized as official. The Claddagh ring, a symbolic Irish ring representing love, loyalty, and friendship, originated in the Claddagh neighborhood of Galway. While visiting Galway, make sure to spend some time exploring the Latin Quarters. The charming neighbourhood is full of picturesque caf├ęs and historical buildings. The weather can be a bit unpredictable in Galway. So, it is best to carry a light jacket or layer while sightseeing. The Irish music scene in the town should not be missed.
