Are you planning a weekend in Galway? Then we have the perfect weekend itinerary just for you. Our hometown is filled with activities, landmarks to see, and lots more. Two days in Galway will give you a flavour for what the City of Tribes is like, and we have you covered with some of the key highlights thanks to this list.
Start with prosecco in your room
By adding on a bottle of prosecco to your room, you can enjoy bubbles on arrival as you leave your bags to one side. Our rooms are designed to be eye-catching, comfortable, and elegant-chic, perfect for relaxing in – and they’re great for getting glammed up for a fun stay. After you’ve sipped on bubbles, whether you’re staying with a gang or savouring a romantic getaway, the hotel is yours to explore. Our bar serves incredible cuisine from early ‘til late, and a meal here is sure to set you up for your 48-hour Galway trip.
HYDE Bar for drinks
Here at HYDE, our bar is the ideal place to enjoy some craft cocktails, Irish and international gins, plus a fab atmosphere you won’t find anywhere else. If you have two days in Galway to spare, we definitely recommend you enjoy one or two in HYDE Bar before exploring the rest of the city’s unique bar culture.
Experience the local Galway culture
Why not enhance the food and beverage experience of your weekend getaway in Galway by also enjoying some other “finer things”. Everyone knows that Galway is a fantastic place to stay if you’re a culture vulture, and there are always gigs, festivals, activities, and dramatic productions worth treating yourself to here. Whether you’re taking in a street performance, watching a play in one of the city’s famed theatres, or savouring an exhibition, you’ll be spoiled for ways to make the most of your two-day Galway adventure.
Visit the Galway Market
The Galway Market is full of fab souvenirs crafted by local artists, the perfect place to find that marvellous token of your weekend in Galway. Whether it’s a porcelain keepsake, a picturesque painting, or something else you could only find in Galway, there’s so much to uncover in this treasure trove of craftsmanship. You’ll also discover plenty of fashionable items – and you might just find that fetching statement piece you were looking for to complement your evening frock or daytime adventure outfit.
Explore the Aran Islands and more!
If you’d like to see what’s on offer beyond the city limits during your two-day Galway adventure, a trip afar could be for you. Visit Connemara to see the unrivalled sights it has to offer and breathe in the fresh air as you admire how beautiful the setting truly is. Or take advantage of a trip to the Aran Islands; tour operators regularly ferry groups to these iconic islands, where you can find out more about the history, language, and traditions that make them so unique. When you return, your HYDE Hotel room will be waiting for you to enjoy a dreamy night’s snooze in luxurious surroundings.
