Eyre Square is the crossroads of Galway city. The buses, locals, and tourists pass through and around it. It is great for people watching. It is also the place for political protest.

Eyre Square is located a couple blocks past Quay Street, if you just keep walking straight, and it's a nice park that's worth the stop. It's lined with pubs, stores and hotels and is pretty central in the city. It's a good place to end a walk, to sit down on a bench and peoplewatch for awhile.

This area was buzzing with shoppers and others who were just enjoying a nice December evening in Galway. The decorations and surrounding shops, booths, and such were worth seeing.

We had a wonderful time wandering the stalls of the Christmas Market last week. Shout out to the Man of Arn and Provencal stalls, as well as to the biergarten! Wonderful ride on the ferris wheel!

The Galway Christmas Market has been going a few years and getting bigger and better every year. Until now 2016! Someone somewhere in their wisdom decided that the Christmas Market could no longer be situated on the grass of Eyre Sq where it has been on previous years. No walking up and down the pathways browsing all the different stalls.... More

Lovely and vibrant. Great Christmas lights and would visit just to see the street entertainers alone. Right next to Christmas market and ferris wheel.
