Crowded like the latin quarter. But a little more seedy. Does not have the same music. Skip and go to the Latin Quarter or Spanish Arch.

Walk around the small park on Eyre Square. Full of life..... buzzing with people and Birds! Get a good feel of Galway life. This area is full of shopping malls and shops. This is the very centre of Galway.

It was enjoyable walking around the center of Galway at Eyre Square and just watching the people. Weather permitting, give yourself time to relax and observe.

Across from the Meyrick Hotel and RR station, the square is a perfect spot to collect yourself and plan your day or simply recover from it. JFK memorial and surrounding garden, as well as the statue of Padraic O'Conhaire, beloved early 20th C. writer, each...More

Not a very big square (walk around in 5 mins). Couple of things of note (shown in photos attached) and nice places to sit down and relax but nothing extraordinary. The square is surrounded by bars but drinking alcohol in the square itself is prohibited.

This is a small little city hangout that it utilized by young and old alike. There is a grass and tree covered area in the back that has plenty of easily navigatable walkways and grass areas. There are well maintained gardens with sculptures. This is...More
