Right smack dab in the middle of Galway is this square with some green space and a few different sculptures and bronze casts. Lots of place to sit and relax and just people watch or enjoy the birds and weather.

The Eyre Square is well known to be where JFK gave his speech when he visited Galway and it is also known as John F Kennedy Memorial Park. It has a lovely park and garden and very near to the shopping street area.

This central square is quite lovely. Central to everywhere we went so gives you a great frame of reference for where you are. Our hotel was nearby and many pubs and coffee shops in the area.

And not one to fully appreciate when one is tired, having just ended the long journey to Ireland, and from Dublin on the coach, and ready to pick up a rental car! The square has much to offer though!

You will find here all the flags from the old families that lived in the area a long time ago. Many current names you would recognize. The square is pretty central and clean. You can sit and relax and watch the sea birds.
