Our Market on Quay street gives you the perfect opportunity to explore the city. Located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, why not wander down the cobblestone streets and find many great restaurants, pubs, arthouse, theatre or boutique shop.
The Spanish Arches are one of the many historical sites in the city and are just a few minutes walk away. Built in 1584, The Front Wall (Ceann an Bhalla) was used to protect ships docked at the nearby quays of Galway, but today, there are only two arches left from the medieval city walls. These 500-year-old arches (the Spanish Arch and the Caoċ Arch) are now a place where the young people of Galway sit and drink in the sun!
The National University of Ireland is a very magical place and well worth a trip. It’s a cross between modern-day Galway and something out of a Harry Potter set. This university is simply stunning, particularly when the vines climbing up the exterior turn from green to red.
Visit the Galway Cathedral. This renaissance style Roman catholic cathedral may be unassuming on the outside, but the interior is stunning. With its mosaics, stained glass and marble flooring, it’s much more picturesque than its grey exterior. Unlike most cathedrals in Europe, this one was completed in 1965, making it much more modern. Plus, you’ll find a mosaic dedicated to US president, John F. Kennedy, who personally visited during the building of the cathedral.
A trip to Galway is simply not complete without a stroll along the Salthill prom. Situated on the northern inner shore of Galway Bay, the Aran Islands are visible to the right and Galway City 'The City of the Tribes’ to the left.
