300 kilometres of the most popular tourist attraction in Ireland, the Wild Atlantic Way, is located just west of Galway City. This includes some beautiful, rugged coastline that Ireland is famous for, as well as a range of historical and cultural buildings and monuments throughout. The Connemara National Park provides a range of hiking trails for all ages.

Killary Adventure Centre is located just a hour’s drive from Clayton Hotel Galway and offers a number of adrenaline filled activities including kayaking, laser combat games, wake boarding, a mini water park and much more. You and your family will be sure to be kept entertained during your visit.

There is a range of other activities in Galway that are very family oriented including Turoe Pet Farm, just outside Loughrea, which is a 14 acre park with a range of animals for both young and old. Animals include ponies, donkeys, goats, sheep, an alpaca and a llama. The staff at Turoe Pet Farm always make sure that you and your family are kept entertained. If animals are what the kids enjoy, then Galway Atlantaquaria is another option – it’s a national aquarium located in Salthill and features saltwater and freshwater exhibits. It features over 170 fish species which include rays, eels and lobster.
