Fancy an exciting living history journey through the heart of medieval Galway? And one which offers an authentic and fun insight into the city’s rich cultural heritage? Then don’t miss Tribes Alive!, an enchanting 60-minute dramatic walking tour through the winding medieval streets of Galway’s Latin Quarter.
Presented in an engaging and humorous way, the tour in association with Failte Ireland returns for an extended run after a successful pilot last year and will again take participants on an enchanting journey back in time. Written by Paraic Breathnach, directed by Rod Goodall and featuring local actors, the tour will visit nine of the city’s most historic landmarks including Blake’s Tower, Kirwan’s Lane, St Nicholas’ Collegiate Church, The Hall of the Red Earl and Spanish Arch.
With up to two performances per day and private tours available by arrangement, this unique tour based on historical fact and humorous observation brings to life great Galway stories, larger than life Galway characters and historical Galway events. Don’t miss it.
Looking forward to the re-launch of Tribes Alive, Fiona Monaghan, Failte Irelands Head of Operations, believes the initiative will give a great boost to the City, and said:
