Galway lies on the River Corrib between Lough Corrib and Galway Bay. It is the fourth most populous urban area in the Republic of Ireland and the sixth most populous city on the island of Ireland.
Galway takes its name from the river Gaillimh (River Corrib) that formed the western boundary of the earliest settlement, which was called DĂșn Bhun na Gaillimhe (“Fort at the mouth of the Gaillimh”). The word Gaillimh means “stony” as in “stony river”.
