Not Every Shopping Center has an Attraction such as this

Our guide brought us here and explained the history, which was very helpful and enlightening, as not sure would have found or realized significance.

This was a very pleasant surprise INSIDE the Mall. The entire mall is disguised with just a small door to enter. Once inside, in the center of the mall are these beautiful original medieval city walls and turrets, along with informational plaques detailing their history. So interesting and totally worth a trip inside the mall. We are still telling friends... More

Beautifully preserve and well noticed Medieval City walls of the Old Galway blended in with the new in the Eyre Square Shopping Center right in the heart of the City shops - Cafe!

In the mall part of the original castle and walls of Galway. Lowest point in Galway, actually below sea level, history preserved.

The casual visitor might not find the walls very interesting, but our walking tour guide made its history very interesting. Walking tours start in the nearby Eyre Square.

Medieval City wall is in the middle of the shopping region. Not sure I would have gone in except my daughter had to shop at Penny's which she really likes. It's a wall.

We walked the wall, which is 1.5 kilometres in circumference. Our guide explained the history of the wall and the factional fighting. There were fantastic virews over the city. Like Belfast there are still some segrated areas and Peace Wall still in existence. Whilst we were walking we saw on a Loyalist March

I love the way the walls are integrated into the shopping center, I think It makes it very accessible for anyone to go and take a look into the past , even if it's raining. And to top it off, grab a coffee while you take it all in.

most impressive way to integrate the new with the old. Galway is one outstanding city where its people works hard to preserve its medieval buildings for future generations. well done.
