Popular park with several historic statues and art dating from the Middle Ages. JFK memorial, Brown Doorway from 1600s and flags representing founding tribes. Easy to cut through to reach Galway tourist streets and sights.

Eyre Square has lost some of its charm from years ago - lots of construction and congestion with some panhandlers.
