Galway Docks – in 2009, Galway was a stopover for the Volvo Ocean Race. Galway Docks was transformed into something resembling Monte Carlo for the two week festival. In fact, everyone had such a great time that this coming June, the race will return to finish in Galway.

The King's Head Pub, Galway Ireland

The building which is now the King’s Head pub is one of the oldest surviving medieval buildings in Galway. Local legend has it that the name of the pub comes from a former occupant of the building, Col. Peter Stubbers who is believed to have carried out the execution of King Charles I in1649.
