Welcome to County Galway. Galway is picturesquely situated on the northern shore and near the head of a noble bay. Galway is noted as the principal city of Connaught. An ancient and storied town its streets and buildings present many features of unusual interest, and its position on the fringe of the western Gaeltacht makes it the obvious entrance to Connemara where the ancient language and custom of Ireland are preserved and practised. County Galway is divided into two constrasting regions by the great expanse of Lough Corrib. East of the lake is fertile limestone plain extending to the Galway-REoscommon border and the River Shannon. The interest of the sightseer, however, will lie mainly in the area westwards from Lough Corrib to the Atlantic-a region of wonderfully varied mountains lake and coastal scenery. The Twelve Bens, a striking group of conical peaks interspersed with deep lake-filled valleys, are the chief mountain feature. Southwards, great tracks of lake-set moorland extend to the much idented rocky coast.
