Ireland’s ‘brilliantly bohemian’ Galway has been named one of the world’s top cities for travellers in 2020 by Lonely Planet. Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2020 describes Galway as ‘arguably Ireland’s most engaging city’, where ‘brightly painted pubs heave with live music’ and ‘cafes offer front row seats to watch buskers perform’.
The Wild Atlantic Way destination features fourth in the list of top cities for 2020, behind Cairo, Washington DC and Salzburg, and ahead of the likes of Bonn, Vancouver and Dubai.
Galway’s exuberance will be supercharged next year by a string of events marking the region’s role as the 2020 European Capital of Culture. The events will start on 1 February with a week of celebrations in County Galway’s towns and villages, culminating in an opening ceremony in Galway city on Saturday 8 February 2020.
