...on High Street.: "High Shopping..." Ireland Shopping Tip by kcochran111

Ireland Shopping: 32 reviews and 36 photos

In downtown Galway, find your way to High Street. A pedestrian-only thoroughfare, Shop Street turns into High St. and runs all the way to the water. It is flanked by shops upon shops, and pubs upon pubs. We would spend our afternoons trying on Irish jewelry, and our evenings eating delicious Irish stews (washed down with Irish beer, of course). High St. comes alive at night, too, when you can mingle with the locals over your favorite pint.

What to buy: Silver jewelry engraved with Celtic crosses and knots.

What to pay: Jewelry ranges anywhere from 10-50 euro.

Address: High Street
Theme: Local Craft
