County Galway has more attractions that the Galway Races, The Seaside at Salthill, and Galway Bay.
There are lots of historic sights too, and within an hour of the city centre you can find medieval sites of international importance.
Which is why so many visitors are attracted to ‘the county Galway’ and also why, over decades, many people are settling in Galway.
Over the years we have moved many families from all over the uk to the county.
The last removal to Co. Galway we did was for a family moving from Holland Park London to Monivea Co. Galway.
And managed to take a photograph of the North Gate at Athenry, from the cab of our furniture removal truck, and the Athenry Castle, dating from c1250 is also notable, with its lower walls splayed outwards to give added strength, perhaps one reason why it is still standing proudly over the town.
As is well known locally, there are more medieval walls in the town than anywhere else in Ireland and they are also the best preserved, with a number of the original towers.
