Spiddal —County Galway
Spiddal (An Spideal) lies 18 km west along the coast road from Galway city. Its charming stone church, traditional pubs and excellent restaurants combine with a fine sandy beach to make Spiddal a favourite stop.
Spiddal is an area, which still manages to value the culture and traditions of Gaeltacht heritage including Spiddal Craft Village (a collection of craft workshops) and Colaiste Chonnacht (one of the many Irish collages in the district).
