Relocating to Galway

Post by India_rt » Wed Dec 05, 2018 2:08 pm

Hello all,
We are planning to relocate to Ireland by next year. Job location would be at Middle St, H91 R6WF. My questions are:
1. Is this locality called as Galway City?
2. A nearby residential area with some Indians in the neighborhood.
3. How to find the best school for that residential area? (Like school ratings etc)
4. How about transport facility in Galway? Is a car mandatory?
5. How is the education at a primary school for a 6 year old coming from India? Will they be able to adapt?

Thanks in advance!

1. The address translates to HYNES BUILDINGS, SAINT AUGUSTINE STREET, GALWAY which is the city centre of Galway
2. Not sure! someone in Galway can help
3. You can search in Google. Choose the school near to where you are going to reside. If I were you, I will go for national schools. The best thing is, education is free in Ireland.
4. In the city centre, no. If you are going to living outside, get a car
5. Your kid will rock! don't worry. They adopt very quickly.

Doughiska has a lot of Indian families. And there is a school there too - http://www.merlinwoods.com/ which I know some of my colleagues kids attend. Its a little outside the city but buses are very frequent and reliable.

How do children commute to schools? Do all schools have school buses?

Some of the schools provide the buses. But that is not always happening with all the schools. Getting a car will be helpful.

Hi... Even I am planning to move to Galway by early next year. Did you get any idea of the locality? What places are good to stay?
