Galway is in close proximity to some amazing natural sites, including:

The Burren: an area of beautiful limestone landscapes in nearby County Clare. Burren is Irish for "stony place"

Connemara: Oscar Wilde called Connemara a savage beauty. NUI Galway is only a stones throw from the seaside, mountains and lake-rich bogland of beautiful Connemara.

Irish in Galway: NUI Galway is a great location for those who are interested in the Irish language. The campus is near the Gaeltacht centres in An Cheathrú Rua, Carna and Gaoth Dobhair. Find out more about our Irish language Centre and Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge.

Civic and Community Life

Galway is full of passionately civic minded people and organisations working to create a rich fabric of social inclusion and participation.  You can truly belong to Galway's community through volunteering, community based learning placements and research partnerships.  NUI Galway is deeply committed to engaging with Galway's civic communities and making a contribution.  Over the next few years, for example, NUI Galway is delighted to be a vital part of Galway's Capital of Culture 2020 as a city and county wide community initiative.
