Dublin: 0 °C Saturday 6 March, 2021

18 times Galway was the soundest place on earth


GALWAY WAS VOTED one of the kindest cities in the Conde Nast Friendliest Cities. It came sixth out of ten, with Dublin taking the third spot.

We never doubted it.

1. They’re up for the craic, even at a taxi rank after a night out


2. And they make sure you’ve got enough booze to do ya for the night

3. Seriously, their soundness would kill them

Remember when the Roisin Dubh ended up serving pints for 50c thanks to a World Cup offer?

4. They’re sound enough to let their staff go to the beach on the one sunny day of the year

5. And aren’t afraid to apologise when they’ve done something wrong

6. They just want you to know they’re thinking about you

7. And even their graffiti wants you to do the same

8. They have the best manners

9. This monkey from An Pucan even went around the city doing random acts of kindess

10. Where else would you get an epic singalong of Galway Girl?

Only in this exceptionally sound city, of course.

11. Or a big trad session on the train?

12. Really though, where else would you get it?

13. They’re too sound to even kick you out when a keg explodes

Give it up for the Salt House bar. Few umbrellas, be grand.
