Galway offers a small-town and university feel, as well as easy access to the landscapes traditionally associated with Ireland, including the Cliffs of Moher, Connemara, and the Aran Islands. The Irish language thrives amongst the Connemara locals who still speak Irish as their native tongue. The creative arts flourish throughout this bohemian city, with music, theatrical production, and literature all contributing to Galway's considerable appeal.
Nicknamed "Ireland's Cultural Heart," Galway offers students the ideal opportunity to explore traditional, vibrant, Irish culture through festivals, celebrations, and events.
