When the weather is nice in Galway, one of my favorite things to do is take a walk on the Salthill Promenade. The walk takes you alongside Galway Bay, and offers an incredible view at sunset.

One of the best day trips is to Kylemore Abbey and the Victorian Gardens. This tour includes several other stops on the way including a stop in the colorful Spiddal Craft Village.
Beyond being breathtakingly beautiful, Kylemore Abbey has a rich history that you are able to explore once going inside. The Abbey was a boarding school for girls that closed 8 years ago and now is a major tourist attraction.

In the distance, you can see part of Connemara National Park. Although the tour bus does not stop at the park, you can take a day trip there from Galway. There are different trails inside the park tailored to both beginners and experienced hikers.
|Class like a royal|
Beyond the arch, you can see one of the prettiest places on the NUIG campus: the Quadrangle. There are many benches outside to sit down and get some work done on a nice day.
