This is the loveliest area of Galway. In the evening the place is filled with buskers playing music. We were lucky and saw an Irish step dancer as well.

This area is filled with tourists but we had a good time. It is very lively and has bars for those who want to stop for a little refreshment. Worth a visit.

We walked this area on one of the only rainy days (believe it!) we had. Did not dampen the spirits of life in this area. It's vibrant, fun and lots going on.

I don't usually rate an area or street as high as this, but the Latin Quarter/Quay street of Galway is different to all of the others. The shops are unique, not your usual high street chains, the pubs are very inviting, good musicians and dancers...More

I imagine this would be standing room only in peak tourist times. Despite the crowds there was a lot to see and made an ideal evening wander

Most of the small craft and gift shops stay open on Saturdays to 06;00 pm ... I believe in Summer time as it's a lot of tourists , it's really not a problem to do shopping
