The lovely university city of Galway on the spectacular Atlantic coast of Ireland. Galway city has about 75,000 inhabitants and this small size means that the city has a friendly atmosphere and is also very safe for students. Galway is famous for its many cultural events, such as the Arts Festival, the Film Festival, the largest horse racing event in Europe, Racing Week and Oyster Festival! Traditional Irish music can be heard all over the city centre at all times and the atmosphere in Galway is what our students love about it. The landscape on the Atlantic coast is breathtaking and visitors to this region regularly describe it as The Real Ireland. Come and see for yourself!
Whether you are a learner of English or a trainee teacher, we look forward to welcoming you to IH Galway!
