We were in Galway on a Bank holiday, with the sun shining. Can it get any better? Loved the people, loved the vibe, I wish every traveller could share such an experience.

This street is lined with many shops, restaurants, and pubs. We stopped at a handful of each, and weren’t disappointed at any of them. It’s a very neat walk through the heart of Galway. This should be the center of your visit.

Fun pedestrian way with lots to explore. Street musicians add to the charm and sidewalk restaurants and bars provide interesting places to stop and soak up atmosphere.

I suppose this street typifies Galway. It's a short street but full of atmosphere. It has loads of restaurants. The Druid Theatre is just off the street. It has pubs such as Tigh Neachtain and superpub The Quays. I grew up in Galway and the...More
