2020 European Capital of Culture
“Baby, I just wanna dance / With my pretty little Galway girl / You’re my pretty little Galway girl …” sings Ed Sheeran. But where’s Galway? And above all, why is it worth visiting it by organizing your next Golf Holiday there? We are in Ireland, in a small town full of history characterized by picturesque atmospheres. It is considered the capital of the gaeltacht, which is the Irish Gaelic language and is highly appreciated by travelers from all over the world. If in addition to this you need one more reason, know that it has been chosen as the European Capital of Culture 2020.
A small town in western Ireland, Galway is a small village full of history and traditions. Bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, the city is nestled in a small portion of land between the bay and Lough Corrib, the largest lake in the Republic of Ireland.
It has typical postcard landscapes, in particular for the colorful houses overlooking the sea. The atmosphere in the port is particularly suggestive: it seems to take a dip in the past and live in a fishing village. On the sea, at a large bridge, there is the sixteenth-century Spanish Arch, a reference point for all citizens. From here starts a walk of about an hour which flanks the ocean.

Some tips on golf courses:
To book the Tee Time, it is best to send an email to the secretary of the Golf Club you have chosen, asking for availability, obviously indicating the day and an indicative time. You can find the e-mail address by opening the Golf Club website from “Open website” and then searching for “contacts” or some Golf Clubs have the form to fill out to get the Tee Time. I think it’s better to send an email to the Secretariat. Opens Google Map at the point of the Golf Club. You can have the necessary information to reach the playing field or to know the distances for example from the Hotel you have chosen for the stay.
WHERE TO STAY IN GALWAY
Galway offers a wide choice of hotels. Of all categories, villas, apartments and more. Below you can find what you need as always with the utmost freedom to choose based on your needs.
WHAT TO EAT IN GALWAY
Irish gastronomy never ceases to surprise us. Fish, vegetables, desserts and meat dishes give the taste buds more unique than rare sensations.
The typical Irish breakfast consists of a myriad of small dishes rich in substance, ready to be consumed to have a boost of energy for most of the day (or, at least, until lunchtime!). In Galway you must taste the breakfast bap, a nice sandwich made with sausages, onion and salad.
In Galway kitchens, potatoes are one of the main ingredients of traditional Irish dishes, with a simple preparation but with a unique flavor. A striking example of the effectiveness of this formula is boxty, a sort of potato pancake believed to be the “poor bread” of the city.
Forget the famous apple pie, because in Galway we speak, in this case, of salty patties. Based on carrot, chicken, sausages, it doesn’t matter: whatever pie you choose to taste, accompanied by the inevitable side dish of vegetables and sauce, it will be a joy for your senses.
You cannot leave Galway without having tried the traditional seafood chowder: a real apotheosis for the palate, a sensory experience recommended especially for lovers of fish gastronomy.
The Irish Stew is a true “piece of ninety” of Galway gastronomy. It is served in restaurants, as well as in pubs, often accompanied by the inevitable Guinness, the most loved beer by the Irish.
A famous dish, mentioned by writers of the likes of Joyce, made using some simple ingredients. The easy formula is also effective in the case of coddle, a meat-based course – sausages, to be exact – accompanied by the inevitable potatoes.
Infinite variations on the theme for a timeless classic among the vegetable side dishes: mashed potatoes, flavored with spices, vegetables and milk.
Fish & Chips
In the beautiful Galway, you cannot miss the tasting of a steaming and crispy fish & chips dish, the traditional battered cod accompanied by a sauce and a very golden portion of the evergreen Irish potatoes.
Prepared especially during the Halloween period, the barmbrack is a mix between a panettone (especially for the ingredients that compose it) and a plumcake (it is baked in the oven in the special mold), around which a curious custom revolves. An object (a ring, a coin and a pea) is inserted inside this cake which, if found, will decree our luck in love or business.
Wild, smoked, grilled, processed: salmon is a must in Irish cuisine. It lends itself to numerous preparations, accompanies practically everything and the flavor is absolutely unparalleled.
