Galway is a major city in Ireland and gateway to the east coast of the Emerald Isle. One of the best ways to check off everything on your ‘must-see’ list is with a cheap car hire.

Whether you’re after a cheap economy car or something racier, you’ll have plenty to choose from and a range of prices to suit your budget.
Confirm your reservation with a few clicks and know that each deal comes with a lowest- price guarantee, no booking or credit card fees and round-the-clock support.
Where to go in your Galway Airport car hire
Any trip to Galway must include a visit to the centuries-old Farmers’ Markets in the city centre on Church Lane. You’ll find all manner of fresh produce, locally made handicrafts, international food stalls and more. Visit any Saturday or Sunday throughout the year, as well as on Fridays in July and August.
Galway has a busy events calendar so it’s likely you may even stumble across one of the many festivals held in the city. The Galway Arts Festival in July brings together music, dance, visual art, theatre, the spoken word, street spectacles and discussions for two weeks each summer. The Film Fleadh is growing in popularity and is another summer celebration, this time showcasing local Irish talent on (and behind) the big screen. There is also a massive food festival in April and a music celebration in May that looks at the early origins of Irish tunes - so be sure not to miss them if you’re in town!
Ireland’s most visited natural attraction is only 1.5 hours from the city by car, making for the perfect day trip adventure. Head south from the city around the coast to reach the Cliffs of Moher, the phenomenal green fields that give way to sheer drops of up to 214 metres. The cliffs stretch 8km along the coastline of County Clare, and if you catch them on a clear day, you’ll be rewarded with a view of Galway Bay and the Aran Islands. O’Brien’s Tower, built in 1835, is located at the highest point of the cliffs and is a great place for a wander through the past.
The airport is 10 kilometres from town, so should take about 20 minutes by car to drive. The facility had been closed recently but is now open again for both commercial and private flights.
From Galway you could go to Dublin, only a few hours drive away or head up North to Sligo to marvel at the beautiful surrounding nature. Donegal, even further North, is another destination nature lover will enjoy. From there, you can cross the border to discover Northern Ireland.
