“Nice park square - enjoy a short break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Nice park square situated in center of Galway. Grab a coffee and rest your feet. There are a few musicians which add to the ambiance as you people watch. Really you only need to spend maybe half hour to an hour to make the most of this place if your after a break from exploring the city center.

“A very busy spot but a place to go and get a coffee and watch the world go by.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is where you will find the tourist information kiosk, who are very helpful.
Eyre square is a very busy place and its nice to see they have removed the road from down the side of it and made it pedestrian only.

“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Eyre Square is a great place to just relax and enjoy the sounds of Galway. Street musicians often play creating a fun atmosphere while you wait for a city bus or enjoy a picnic lunch on the grass.
