Yes, it seems like there's a small airport in Galway (GWY). Try http://www.fly.to/galway/
According to this homepage, Aer Arran is the only airline at GWY, flying to DUB and LTN. The pictures seem a little bit outdated, Aer Lingus Saab 340, Crossair, ... I'm not sure how often this homepage is updated.

ps: If you plan to visit Galway, take warm clothes with you - I've been to Shannon in May and it was *cold*!

There should be flights from DUB to Galway; it may be a "social provision" type of service. I believe it used to be Aer Arran doing the internal flights but they lost out to someone (Euroceltic?) in the last tender and have, instead, expanded their Eire-UK operations, including a Galway-LTN link.

It's not the first time Galway has had links with the UK; I think Ryanair used to have ATR42 flights to LTN, then Air Kilroe began a daily rotation from MAN using J31s and then started a link to LTN. No route really prospered though!

David_itl,

Euroceltic in fact got Sligo and Donegal. Aer Arann kept Galway and Kerry.

Thanks for the correction to my erroneous line! Are there any non-DUB Irish domestic services?

Someone told me that when there is bad weather at Galway, aircraft must land at Shannon.

There is also a small airfield to the west of Galway from where the Aran Islands services are operated by Aer Arann. If memory serves - Connemara that is. Nice little airport where you get weighed before check-in in order to assess the most suitable seat in the BN Islander for your flight.

Flights from Galway are operated, as it has been said, by Aer Arann Express - which is, despite the "Express" in its name, in fact the larger (but much younger) outfit.
