Galway is an ideal tourist location
It has a vibrant arts scene, a rich history, and a colorful present!
One of the biggest pros of Galway is it's picturesque views that can be seen here and throughout this entire video
Another amazing thing about Galway is the architecture
This could be said to be the most popular meal in Ireland, as it is eaten by every class of citizens in Ireland.
It is made with potatoes, carrots, onions, and any hard meat

Colcannon and champ
This is a comforting dish consisting of potatoes, cabbage, kale, butter, and cream
Coddle is generally made up of leftovers from other meals, generally sausage, bacon, onions, and potatoes.
Galway was constructed in 1124
It was made to be a naval base and a military fort
In December 1484 it got the municipal charter from the crown which ensured its independence
During the Middle Ages an oligarchy of fourteen merchant families ruled
Leading up to the 18th century Galway suffered many declines due to various battles and revolts
After the 17th century wars Galway, being a Catholic port city, was under suspicion that lead to all Catholics being ordered to leave the city in 1715.
Galway's economy recovered somewhat in the 19th century, but the city's rural hinterland suffered terribly in the Great Irish Famine.
Galway's population even declined from the devastation while most urban centres experienced an increase in population
A number of buildings were injured during various conflicts.
On August 16, 1971, part of the city center was even destroyed by fire.
That is all! Thank you for watching!
