The celebrated charms of Galway's Atlantic coastline—the wild landscapes, modern cities, and historic sites—are easily accessible from Dublin. Here are a few ways to journey from Dublin through the Emerald Isle's heartland to explore Galway Bay.

Galway Bay Day Trips
Head west from Dublin, and it's possible to visit some of Galway Bay's most iconic sites on a day trip. Explore cosmopolitan Galway City, take in the 700-foot (2130-meter) Cliffs of Moher, cruise around Kiary Harbour, walk the lunar landscape of Burren, or tour the 16th-century Dunguaire Castle. Day trips are available by car, coach, and train.

Multi-Day Tours
Travelers with more time can extend their stay on Ireland's Atlantic Coast with a multi-day tour from Dublin. Aside from Galway Bay, these longer, more leisurely experiences might also visit Cork, the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula, or the Aran Islands. Opt to travel by rail through the scenic Irish countryside, or make your guided journey by coach.

Things to Know
  • Galway lies 129 miles (208 km) west of Dublin. The drive takes about 2.5 hours.
  • Expect day trips to last upwards of 12 hours.
  • Dress in layers and bring a rain jacket, as rain is a constant in Ireland.
  • Wear comfortable clothing and good walking shoes.
