Our Favourite YouTube videos featuring Galway (part 5)


The first clip is from the NUI Galway Ultimate Frisbee club’s video of the Galway Open, which took place this year at the NUI Galway sportgrounds.


Up next is Salthill, a seaside area in Galway popular with Galwegians and tourists alike, especially for a walk on the promenade (known locally as ‘the prom’) overlooking Galway Bay.


The Spanish Arch is another popular Galway attraction and features the last remaining piece of the medieval city walls.


Coole Park (40km from Galway city) was the home of Lady Augusta Gregory, a renowned writer and patron of many well known writers of the Irish Literary Revival, including William Butler Yeats, John Millington Synge and Sean O’ Casey. Today the park is a nature reserve, which you can visit to experience the beautiful surroundings that drew so many writers to the place.


About 20kn northwest of Gort is the splendid seaside village of Kinvara and Dunguaire Castle, which was built in 1520 on the shores of Galway Bay.
