Galway, with its fun and friendly atmosphere, is Ireland's fastest- growing city and a favourite with visitors. Few can resist the feelgood factor of a city filled with buskers and entertainers, street parties and live, traditional music spilling out of pub doorways. There are festivals galore in Galway, celebrating everything from jazz and cinema to oysters and the arts, not forgetting the famous Galway Races, and the city is home to a number of theatres presenting dance, opera, music and plays performed both in English and Irish. Situated on the north-east shores of romantic Galway Bay, this is an ideal base for exploring the county's dramatic Atlantic coastline, mountains and lakes, and for outdoor sports including sailing, fishing, swimming, golf, hiking, and rowing and cruising on the River Corrib, which flows through the city. Popular attractions include the greyhound stadium and the Galway City Museum, which describes the city's history, art and literature. On the outskirts of Galway, the fishing village of Claddagh is the birthplace of the Claddagh ring symbolising love or friendship. Families, meanwhile, will enjoy the seaside suburb of Salthill, with its aquarium and Leisureland, and Killary Fjord, north of the city, where friendly dolphins swim with the boat cruises.
