Galway City

Galway City is a city in Co Galway and the main urban area in the county. It lies on the River Corrib between Lough Corrib and Galway Bay and is surrounded by County Galway. The city is accessible by road and rail. Its harbour is also the most central port on the west coast of Ireland. It has numerous shops, pubs, restaurants, services and a range of schools, including NUI Galway and GMIT. Galway is known as Ireland's Cultural Heart (Croí Cultúrtha na hÉireann) and is renowned for its vibrant lifestyle and numerous festivals, celebrations and events. Part of the city is in the Gaeltacht area and as a result Galway City has a reputation for being associated with the Irish language, music, song and dancing traditions. Irish theatre, television and radio production and Irish music form a component of Galway city life, with both An Taibhdhearc, the National Irish Language Theatre, in Galway city itself, while TG4 and RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta headquarters are in the Connemara Gaeltacht elsewhere in County Galway. There are numerous theatres and music venues in the city, as well as an abundance of cinemas and leisure centres. The main city hospital, University Hospital Galway, is located on two campuses — Galway University Hospital and Merlin Park University Hospital. Two private hospitals, The Galway Clinic and the Bon Secours Hospital, Galway, also operate in the city. Galway Hospice provides palliative care for the people of Galway City and County on a homecare, inpatient and daycare basis. There are also numerous sporting groups in the area including Pearse Stadium, the home of Galway GAA, Connacht Rugby, who play at The Galway Sportsgrounds and Galway Utd FC, who play at Eamonn Deacy Park. The city also boasts a greyhound stadium on the College Road.
