"Centre of Gaelic Culture" Galway by Ramonq
Galway Travel Guide: 533 reviews and 1,022 photos
The town of Galway almost feels cramped and intimate which belies the fact that is surrounded by vast open green spaces and a few hours away from awesome cliffs and wind-swept barren islands. At the main square, Eyre Square, where Galwegians are quick to point out that this was the spot where JFK made a speech during his brief visit to Ireland, the city appears hectic. No surprises there as the train and bus stations are located nearby and car and pedestrian traffic converge.
Along the main pedestrian streets of William and Shop Streets, a throng of crowd march down the medieval laneways that are packed with pubs, shops, restaurants and more pubs. I like the traditional shopfronts and pubs in Ireland. Brightly coloured and signposted with Victorian-era letter-fonts, they are full of charm which invite passers-by to drop in. The buskers performing traditional Irish music makes strolling around Galway more evocative and enriches your Irish travel experience.
- Pros:Pubs with friendly patrons
- In a nutshell:Cheers!
