About Carrie, your tour guide…
Galway is my adopted home – I fell in love with it when I moved here over 12 years ago, and now I love to show it off!
And what better way than on foot (I am a Personal Trainer & Fitness Instructor after all, so I love to keep people active).
From Mindful Commutes to Plogging on the Beach, I love to get people active and enjoying our gorgeous city – both visitors and residents alike.
And I’ll let you in on all the local secrets along the way…
About the tour…
This is a c.8km / 5 mile run, that takes in all the major sights of the city, some lesser-known gems, and take in some of its best scenery!
You will see where the Spanish landed in the 16th century at the Spanish Arch, and glance where Nora Barnacle – wife and muse of James Joyce – lived.
If history isn’t your thing, then don’t worry – we will also pass some of Galway’s greatest traditional music venues, and you’ll get to see where Ed Sheerhan first plied his trade as a busker along the aptly named Shop Street.
We’ll also bring you through Galway’s Westend, an amazing and eclectic part of Galway city which is where we’ll start and end our tour.
And you’ll also get a chance to see some of our seafront Promenade where you can breathe in that healthy Atlantic sea air.
At the end, there will be time for a freshly-squeezed juice using oranges from Ernie’s Fruit and Veg store that will replenish your energy levels after a run that usually takes around 1 hour 10 minutes.
Of course, this is dependent on the group’s pace and how many snaps you all want to take along the way! It’s your tour 😀
