Galway East Family Trails

On Saturday 28th March at 1 p.m. at the Athenry Heritage Centre we celebrated the launch of our Family Activity Trails, joined by 10 families for lots of fun and goodies. 

launch of family activity trails and Galway East Tourism have teamed up to create 5 different Family Activity Trails round the east part of the County, especially designed for families. You can log onto and download each family trail to bring with you.
