Why choose Galway?
Galway is the ideal place to pick when it comes to selecting where to do your teacher training in Ireland. Galway is Ireland’s most western city and is the fourth biggest city in the Rep. of Ireland. Galway is famous for its picturesque streets and lively atmosphere. It’s steeped in history and culture and annually hosts Ireland’s largest annual arts festival, GIAF, in July along with numerous other festivals throughout the year such as Cúirt, The Galway Races and The International Oyster Festival. You’ll have lots to see and do while you are here – check out the Galway Guides on our website to explore the delights that await you!
Situated on the shores of Galway Bay it is perfectly located to explore some of Ireland’s most popular tourist destinations such as the breathtakingly beautiful Cliffs of Moher or take a ferry to explore the stunning Aran Islands or maybe do some hiking in the wilds of Connemara.
You are spoiled for choice when it comes restaurants, cafesand pubs to choose from. You will find that all tastes are catered for whether you wish to taste our fantastic fresh Atlantic seafood or try out the many international eateries, you won’t be disappointed.
GCI is ideally located right on the coast, on the midway point of the Wild Atlantic Way, our school is only a short 15 min walk to the city centre or a 5 min stroll to Salthill main strip. A favourite pastime for locals and tourists is to take a ramble down The Salthill Prom on a sunny afternoon, admiring the majesty of The Burren on the other side of Galway Bay. If you’re feeling brave enough you could take a dive off the famous diving boards at the end of the prom but just to warn you the water is quite crisp most of the year!!!
