Welcome to Galway History Website

Welcome to the website of Open Galway History Forum. It’s a place where you can learn about the history of the city, its streets, people and culture.

You can look at hundreds of photographs and, in the near future, listen to old audio recordings and watch films.

It’s also a place where you can share your opinions and views on the events that took place in the past. You can present histories of your families and places you have ties with. You can show to the world your own unique collections of photographs, prints or paintings, as well as objects that are forever intertwined with the submitted stories.



Due to the numerous questions about the images in higher resolution, i want to inform you that I can prepare some images for printing at A4 size, ie a maximum 210x297 mm. 

If the quality of this image is acceptable please let me know which picture you are interesting. However, not all photos are good enough. Please download the sample image and do a test print. http://galwayhistory.info/clifden.zip. 

For preparing images for print I expect your support for the further development of the site a minimum of 10 euro per photo. For those interested in more information in the email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it


Lets publish more...

Dear friends. Recent times, I get many emails from you with sincere words of recognition, thanks and encouragement to work on further development of the Galway History website.

Thank you for all the positive feedback. In connection with so many accolades and much interest I would invite you to cooperation. Probably many of you have your own photos and written archives, family histories, which we can share with others and published here.

Galway and Connemara history is above all the history of your family and your neighbors. I invite you to share your memories and your loved ones.

Let's make this something special.
