Winner: Galway

“It has to be Galway,” you told us. And so it proved.

Last year, Dingle took pride of place among your favourite home holiday destinations. But for 2018, the west has won, with Galway banking almost double the votes of any other place.

“There’s something about that city,” you said. “The moment I get off the bus, I get this buzz. I've yet to have one bad out night there.”

You hailed Galway’s “great energy” as “a perfect blend between traditional Ireland and modern society”, and called it Ireland’s “culture capital”.

The city is “young, vibrant and distinctly Irish,” readers added, with “heart-warming hustle and bustle” that is “always welcoming at different times of the year.”
