What you'll do

After our epic breakfast at Cafe temple we will take a short walking tour (about 45 mins) to show you the highlights of our city.

We will be ambling through the shopping area, the Latin Quarter, the riverside around the Spanish Arch and the over to the 'Claddagh' (famous for that Claddagh ring) before entering 'The West'. We finish back in the centre of town having taken in the 'vibe' and assaulted our senses with Galway's charms!

Galway, or the 'city of the tribes' as it is known is a fine example of a medieval city that used to send out its trading ships to the world. We'll tell you a little about the history but also about how the city has evolved into a vibrant modern city filled with great places to eat, shop and dine.

PLEASE NOTE : Current reviews refer only to the 'walking' part of the experience as we have added the breakfast this year. If you you really dont want breakfast (and you are missing out !) then you will get a cash refund of 10 euro on the price of the experience.
Other things to note
Children of 13 and under are welcome to come along with their parent(s) or guardian(s). The 10 euro charge is for the breakfast...if they don't want to eat we will happily refund it!

Hi, It's been my pleasure to guide visitors to our city around our city for over 10 years now. As a well known person in the city I've got to know many of the characters and businesses that make our city so unique and interesting.

We begin with a great breakfast...all included...at one of the best cafes. It's a social enterprise serving a classic Irish breakfast but also healthy and vegetarian / vegan options as well. If you don't fancy cooking its a fun way to start the day!
Let us take you on a one hour blast of a tour to get you into the 'real' Galway. We'll give you an outline of the history but also let you in on the insider knowledge of the best cafes, restaurants, pubs and shops of our city.
We'll cover the both the main sights and little known spots to give you an authentic l feel for our city. Then...you explore !

Where you'll be

Over the years we must have had tea or coffee in every joint in town, no two the same! We'll point out places like the Black Gate and Tribeton that are very much not part of the 'main drag'. Rooted in the community they are far from the one-size-fits all multinational brands we see everywhere.

We love our fish in Galway too, and we'll pass by places that started back in 1902, but are still fresh today.

And we'll cram in the odd eccentric shop.

Neil was a brilliant tour guide and gave a very personal experience gearing the tour towards our interests. Breakfast was a great touch and the food was great!

A true story teller. Neil was so much fun and accomodating to our needs. The breakfast was really good and the city tour with the history couldn't get any better.

We had a great Tour with Neil. Starting with a great breakfast which was included and very delicious. Sadly for him but good for us was the fact that many other members canceled their tour, so we had our private tour. He showed us the history and everything we needed to see in Galway. Neil has a great sense of humour and we could had listened to him many hours more. We totally recommend his tour for every visitor. Greetings from Germany Lara and Philipp

My wife and I were one of the first to try the breakfast and the tour. It was a great time and well worth the cost. We felt like we got an inside look into the city. Neil was great and easy to communicate with. Thanks Neil!

Our walking tour with Neil was great. We met at an easy to find location and the tour was informative and interesting. I would recommend it. We covered different parts of Galway and it made it easy to plan the remainder of our trip.

Make one of Neil’s tours the first thing you do when you arrive in Galway. We got a great tour that helped us see the essentials while getting a good layout of the city. We dipped into some off-the beaten-path locations as well.
