Galway's legendary walking tour !
The legendary tour centers around the tale of the Lynch family. Its a fascinating tale of how Walter Lynch is accused and tried for the murder of a visiting Spaniard who was a little too interested in his beautiful wife to be...or was he ? The story ends in a dramatic climax...but you will have to take the tour for that finale ! We also look at the legend of the Claddagh ring with a tale connected to Caribbean pirates, North African slave owners and a gold ring that speaks of eternal love. Christopher Columbus makes his appearance too, looking for a new way to China, but worrying that Atlantis might stand in his way. These and other tales are woven together in a 80-90 minute walk through the city. Its taken at a gentle pace to bring in all the major places of interest and embed them into the story of our city. Other things to note Dont worry about it raining - we have plenty of places to hide out of the rain !

Knit a traditional Aran pattern in the Burren
Explore the history and symbolism of one of Ireland’s traditional crafts with a hands-on experience and workshop on the techniques of the intricate Aran knitted patterns. Suitable for all levels of experience. In this workshop, you will create your own Aran panel which can be framed or be part of a larger piece of work, such as a throw, sweater or scarf. The workshop is held by Stephanie, a professional knitter who provides commissioned knitted Aran creations and exhibits her art in Galway City. With her guidance and instructions, you will be able to both learn, understand and try your hand at a selected pattern. We'll provide you with local wool, a pattern and knitting needles. The Aran style and patterns have been handed down over generations and are originally from the three Irish speaking islands off the coast of County Galway. Traditionally worn by fishermen for their water-resistant quality and warmth, they were an everyday clothing item among the islanders. They have over time become a worldwide admired fashion item. Each pattern has its own symbolic meaning, it represents a story and a symbol, deeply rooted in Irish history and life; they also tell the stories and life of the knitter and their family. End your visit with tea and coffee, accompanied by traditional homemade brown bread with smoked salmon, and homemade porter cake.
