 Galway - Profile

Location

Although sheltered from the Atlantic swell by the Aran Islands, this bay is large enough to allow the seas to build up in strong winds. The city of Galway, one of Ireland’s largest, lies on the northern shore and its harbour is well protected by its small off-lying islands.

Position 53° 15.74'N, 09° 02.45'W (harbour entrance)

Clearance

This is a Port of Entry.

See the Noonsite/Ireland/formalities page for full details for clearance.
