Galway Atlantaquaria

Galway Atlantaquaria, Ireland's National Aquarium, is the "jewel in the crown
of visitor attractions in the West of Ireland" and is home to 170 species of fresh
water and marine life. Situated on the famous Salthill Promenade, it has
evolved to become undoubtedly one of the finest visitor attractions in Ireland.
Designed over two floors, visitors follow a vivid interpretation of the Irish
aquatic landscape: from the glacial mountain streams of Connemara, down
through the famous River Corrib and out into the Atlantic Ocean via Galway
Bay. On the journey exhibits include Salmon, Seahorses, Octopus, Stingrays
and a real 60ft whale skeleton. The aquarium also boasts four types of native
Irish shark including the rare Angel Shark and graceful Smooth Hound. Visitors
can take part in the feeding, explore the model submarine, and even hold
Starfish and giant Spider Crabs.
