Galway is one of the more popular cities in the Republic. In Galway everything is nearby. It could however be  a lot greener and bike friendly. Don't drink the tapwater there. Michael D is right about Galway being a welcoming city- you area Galwegian if you live in Galway.

An amazing city of contrasts - I could spend three weeks or perhaps months exploring Galway, but 3 minutes certainly whet my appetite, Thank you, Ryan!

We have felt very welcome! 

That video was fab.  If I had a multi-national company, I'd be convinced to base here.  With that settled, I'll turn my attention to deciding what to do with all my extra cash...;)

Interesting to hear about your 'extra cash', Kelly generated from your multi-national company. The I shall be (as the adolescents say) your new BFF - oops, I have just pressed a key which I shall have to figure out to undo - meanwhile, enjoy the large print :-)

Multi-nationals are not attracted by poor city planning, no long term goals for the development of the city such as a deep sea harbour and massive traffic jams that get worse every year.

The water in parts of Galway County is still poisoned.

In terms of tourism development Galway is lacking. Mayo has a Green way, which Galway cannot manage to create.

Ah, sure it's grand ;)

Yep, Galway certainly isn't perfect ... but it's the favourite of so many tourists I speak with ... and the favourite of many people who live elsewhere in Ireland, as well!

its not perfect, nowhere is. Its just that the powers that be could be doing so much more to attract tourists. There is a lot going on in Galway but they do not believe in advertising. For example Trad on the Prom is a brilliant show, but you hardly hear about in Galway.
