Herons Rest locale

Visitors to Galway city and guests of The Herons Rest Boutique Bed & Breakfast will find themselves spoilt for choice as regards ‘things to do’.

The city itself is a bustling town steeped in history and culture. A vibrant local music and arts scene presents variety in the night life from traditional performers to upcoming raw Irish talents alongside more acclaimed international performers.

A stones throw from the Herons Rest boutique B&B is the Galway City Museum and also http://www.galwayartscentre.ie/ who both host many interesting exhibitions and events throughout the year. Galway is also home to two theatres: The Town hall theatre and Druid theatre Company a highly esteemed local theatre company who have toured globally.

Galway is a foodies destination and has become renowned for leading the food renaissance in Ireland with many award winning restaurants specialising in serving local, seasonal artisanal foods. A busy farmers market runs every Saturday morning and is a wonderful expression of the local produce, handmade crafts & bric a brac. Recently Aniar Restaurant Galway was awarded the first Michelin star in the west. At the Herons Rest we pride ourselves in assisting you to plan your dining experience and make reservations to help you make the most of your stay.
