This is really the Spanish quarter of Galway as we traded with Spain in the past. Its really Galway's Temple Bar. Interesting with lots of shops, restaurant, bars and coffee shops

Perfect trip....greatest area of Galway! Old, historical and full of charm! Even with the unusually cold weather there is always a pub and the people to keep you warm! It’s a magical, charming piece of the world!

This whole area of Galway is where the fun starts and ends. It’s the place to be, day or night (especially at night). Many pubs, restaurants and places to be entertained. Not to be missed.

Fun, active, buzzy, and stumbly street. Tons of bars, pubs, restaurants. No shortage of places to hit for a distraction.

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
