Best seen by foot
Central Galway is easily accessible on foot, and Salthill (a popular tourist area) is a lovely 20-30 minute walk from the centre of town. The Promenade (Prom), stretching from The Claddagh to Blackrock is a very popular walk with locals and visitors alike.
Bus Éireann and CityDirect run local bus networks.

Taxis, by car and by bike
Taxis are convenient, although they can be a bit expensive. There are taxi ranks in Eyre Square and Bridge Street.
Avoid taking a car when going to or anywhere near the town centre as parking can be expensive, and the city can has very heavy traffic levels at times. A very popular car park close to the centre is that at the Dyke Road, just off the Headford road. Just a 5 minute walk to Eyre Square.
Coca-Cola Zero® Bikes is an exciting new addition to the cities of Limerick, Cork and Galway. Bike stations are located throughout the cities to provide a healthy and convenient means of transport - Visit website
