Two free evenings in Galway while on a tour...what to do?

We will be on a 9-day tour through Ireland. When we reach Galway, we will be busy during the day seeing Lynch Stone, the Galway Cathedral, and having an excursion into the Irish countryside.

We will have two evenings free (August 5th and 6th). What should we try to see/do on those two evenings? Pub suggestions? Or, any other suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

By Lynch Stone i assume you mean Lynchs Castle which is just a bank nowadays, it was a norman castle and is really just a photo op these days. There are loads of pub suggestions in the forum already, as for evenings a walk along the prom is always good.

Hi,

Unfortunately you will have just missed the Arts Festival where you would have a had a wide of choice of things to do. The Galway Races are on at the minute, finishing Sunday and they also attract a large crowd to the city. There are plenty of good restaurants to spend some time in, but if you are on a tour your meals are probably included already. So other than a stroll along the Prom as NatCork suggested, it leaves catching some live music in a choice of pubs.
