Merit Galway is located on the western coast of Ireland. The port city of Galway is thriving, bohemian, and cultured. It is a popular seaside destination, thanks to its beautiful beaches and long winding promenade. It also has a buzzing cosmopolitan city centre with its labyrinthine cobbled streets, colourful shop facades, and busy café/bar culture.
Galway City is also well known for its festivals, with huge crowds gathering for the annual Galway Arts Festival, horse races, and other events. Old Ireland is present, too, with turf fires and traditional music featured in many pubs to complement a pint of Guinness.
Galway was selected as a key site for medical device manufacturing, in part because of its proximity to local Educational Institutions, such as the National University of Galway, helping to build relationships, partnerships, and trust between industry and academia. Merit Medical Ireland was awarded the 2018 Medtech Company of the Year Award, a prestigious award granted by a panel consisting of Irish business enterprise and governmental agency leaders.
