“Hey, it's a park..what's to say?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

It is green. Flower lined, full of people. It is something to pass through, or by, but not a destination.

“Renting a car in Galway from Budget Rental on Eyre Square”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had very little time in Galway, so cannot really say anything about it except that the two men on the street who helped me FINALLY find the car-return "Hynes Car Park" were wonderful. This was in contrast to the Budget rental blokes, and overall set-up, where they are too busy bringing in new customers to take care of existing ones. Rather than an obvious, easy place to set down your car (after driving for days/hours on interesting, lovely but often harrowing narrow roads!) on return, you are supposed to have a) remembered to keep handy the wee map they sent you off with on rental day (a walking map anyway) and then be able to figure out how to navigate all manner of one-ways and pedestrians rodes to find the car park - which we forgot the name of. When we called the gents at the Budget shop, they did remind us the name of the car park, but stated they were too busy to actually give us directions - just ask someone on the street. So, not sure of the alternatives, but this was a very stressful ending to our trip in western Ireland.

“Noisy, fun, young”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Lots of people and very interesting. Lots of shops and restaurants. Lots of folks of all ages, but mostly young people (20-30) and much partying. Good to eat before it gets to crazy.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

This is a small park without anything too interesting... Just a park we cut through to get to dinner or quay street for a night out
