Private Walking Tour
The City of the Tribes Tour.
Journey through our vibrant Cultural Capital of Europe, with the iconic ‘City of the Tribes’ tour.
This unique walking tour combines traditional historical narrative with a completely unique series of verses performed by Shane, who has been involved in Irish dance & music since he was a child.
During these entertaining punctuations between different historical sites, you will learn to appreciate how music, song & dance became the crucial thread to keeping the fabric of Irish community alive and intact during times of famine, strife.
Discover the wonderful history of this medieval city through verse and stories inspired by triumph and hardship, love and jealousy, international trade & intercultural exchange; all factors that helped shape Galway into the European City of Culture that we know & love today.
We spent a great day with Shane walking around the streets of Galway! Shane was on time, professional, knowledgeable and extremely passionate about his city and culture. The entire process was seamless and he was very responsive to emails to set up the tour prior to my arrival. Highly recommended for your next trip!
