You’ve just arrived in Galway and you’re hungry to learn the history of the place; the people that populated the streets hundreds of years ago, the stories they told…or maybe you’ve lived in Galway your entire life, but a walking tour’s not for you. Either way, the answer has arrived. ‘Histry’ is here, and it’s full of compelling insight into Galway’s past. Choose from English, Gaeilge, Francais, Deutsch, Italiano or Español. ‘Histry’ gives you an interactive, self-guided tour of Galway, right in the palm of your hand. Whether you’re a newcomer or a local, allow yourself to step back in time and relive history.

Use the built in map to find each of Galway’s finest historical monuments at your own pace and to arrange your own trail around the city. Our local author and historian, Peadar O’Dowd, shines a light on the key events and personalities of Galway’s fascinating history. You'll learn about the life of many colourful characters from "Humanity Dick" Martin, Nora Barnacle (wife of James Joyce), the people of the Claddagh and the Tribes of Galway.
