Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

- This is a building that once housed the Lynch family. It dates from the 16th century. A bank now occupies the building. In the lobby, there are exhibits relating to Lynch's Castle.Written 24 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Our recent trip into the city landed us at this fabulous market, couldn’t believe all the different types of food on offer just wish we could have tasted them all!! Loved the craft village, so much on offer and picked up some great handmade gifts. Spent a couple of hours shopping, eating (main course and desert 😆), people watching, drinking coffee and listening to the live music. Chilled out atmosphere but with a great market buzz too, will definitely be back !Written 8 September 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- After visiting the atrocity known as the Corrib Shopping Centre, which turned out to have no public toilets whatsoever (!), I decided to visit the Eyre Square Centre to avail myself of their toileting facilities.
Luckily, the toilets were nice and clearly signposted.
After what felt like a trek to get there, I was hugely let down to see metal barriers requiring members of the public to pay to use the lavatories!
In a public shopping centre, this is a disgrace. What makes matters worse is that the toilets were 50 cent, which is by no means a cheap price for a public toilet. I therefore didn't end up going - as a Brit who uses Pound Sterling, I did not have any Euros on me to use the toilets. But even if I did, I would not have used them on moral grounds.
On a more serious note - if someone had a medical condition which required them to use the toilet, and they happened to have no cash on them, how would the Eyre Square Centre management answer for this? That is a question which they need to answer.#
Aside from the toilets, this place is really void of any decent shops. Yes, there's a Dunnes Store, but all the other stores are pretty small, although at least there is a decent variety. I wouldn't bother eating or drinking here as the (can I call it a food court?) in the centre of it was full of filthy tables and had a very poor selection of eateries, including one of the worst Costa Coffees I have ever visited.
This place is only getting 3*s because it has a decent car park!
Would I recommend the car park? Yes. Would I recommend the shopping centre? No. Would I recommend the toilets? Don't ask silly questions!Written 19 August 2023
- We found all the Irish gifts for our family that we were looking for. Great selection. Great location.Written 23 November 2023
- This museum is small and is behind a clad dash ring shop. It’s free to enter. It contains some interesting (low tech) displays on rings purchased/ given to Queen Victoria and Princess Grace of Monaco. The displays trace what happened to the rings after they were received by the royals. It’ll only take you 15 minutes to duck in here, so if you have the time, an interesting few minutes.Written 24 May 2023
- The legend was built on excellence. So many major English Language authors made the trip to the shrine that was Kenny’s. Now it has moved out of town amidst the warehouses and car repair shops as it is primarily a warehouse and fulfillment center for worldwide seekers of out of print books. Amazon has killed so many book shops. Kenny’s has changed and lives on. A great visit. It was worth leaving city Centre to find it.Written 1 June 2019
- We stopped off here while we were in Galway because we heard a lot about it. They are the original makers of the claddagh ring, saw a quick documentary about them on t.v. a couple of years ago. The store is located on the other side of Eyre square down Quay St. towards Father Griffin Rd bridge. Its a cute little store with a friendly staff. They have a variety of jewelry selections to choose from with different price points. The two women that helped us was very friendly and not pushy. Didn't hurry us when we wanted to try other sized rings, they we very accommodating. Would visit them again.Written 14 July 2023
- This shop is genuinely a treasure for any book lovers. A real blend of new and used books. Covering every possible type of topic. Absoluely a must visit.Written 16 October 2023
- We had so much fun at last night's workshop! Aisling's enthusiasm and creativity is contagious! We had a ball creating our own earring designs from a treasure trove of beads and bits -with all the necessary tools- and lashings of good- humoured guidance from Aisling. Lots of laughter and chat with the lovely group. A thoroughly enjoyable evening ...and beautiful earrings for ourselves and as gifts. Highly recommend!!Written 17 November 2023
