The Riverside Walk in Galway is a nice easy walkway along the river, Its a pretty area near the Spanish Arch. We took a tour on our Pedal Power pub crawl.

Taking the route that runs along the river from the Spanish Arch to the Cathedral is a pleasant walk. There is nothing special along the way, but that doesn't detract from the experience.

Nice walk, was heading to NUIG and this is right through it. Takes you past the salmon weir bridge and down the river Corrib.

A gorgeous walk down by the riverside with a winding easy to walk trail and picturesque old brides, gorgeous flowers, and the Spanish Arch. An easy and pleasurable walk once you are in Galway from your hotel if you are outside the city center or...More

Walking along the river taking in the views was peaceful and interesting. The old bridges were picturesque which I took advantage of. From the park at the Spanish arch cross over the street to the walk behind Jury inn. Worth the walk.

We had a lovely riverside walk from the main street in Galway. We passed by The Claddagh and Nimmo Pier and sat by the river banks watching sea gulls.

The riverside walk is a comfortable option to explore some of the Galway charms. One of the most interesting Galway sights.

Beautiful part of Galway. Be sure not to miss this. It is away from the shopping area so you have to do a little exploring but it really is worth it.

While in town it’s well worth a visit. Other than crossing the odd bridge, you take a step away from the roads and have a lovely flowing river beside you, and you soon forget about the city. You can make the walk as long or...More
