All reviews street performers great street pubs and restaurants busy street live music lots of shops fun area great buzz pedestrian area lots of fun spanish arch latin quarter galway city irish music eyre square stroll souvenirs
A great place to wander at night... Lots of bars and restaurants, and talented and determined buskers braving rain and even snow to deliver great music to people passing by. Lots of opportunities to duck into pubs for traditional music, too.
Galway's quay street has a very trendy vibe to it. Because the city ia thriving with young generation from local universities, the restaurants are very varied and there are many options. It's great for just a stroll as well!
Amazing little street, friendly and fun and the best street in galway to be at the weekends or holidays. Great place to eat, great place to drinking and some real nice places to shop. A mustsee if in gawlay.
Hard to know where to start !!!! what an amazing Vibrant colourful musical street, great pubs and they are truly great, Guinness is a must, you will be spoiled for choice and when you have visited every pub you will be merrier than you have...More

There are loads, so it depends on your budget. Jurys Inn would be very central, it's just off Quay St or the Meyrick which is on Eyre Square and close to the Bus & Rail Station. Connacht Hotel outside the city but there is a... More
There are loads, so it depends on your budget. Jurys Inn would be very central, it's just off Quay St or the Meyrick which is on Eyre Square and close to the Bus & Rail Station. Connacht Hotel outside the city but there is a good bus route.

2 nites perfect the uni kids are all off now until after Easter and the buzz isn't usually a 'spring break type buzz' it's a Good feel and there are clubs and pubs for your age and older ! That's why it's so popular something for everyone . There is lots of food , pubs, clubs etc to choose from. There's good shopping and lots of sightseeing of you wanted to do a bit of touring outside the city there is lots. A 2 day break is perfect. In winter it's the right amount of time - in summer you could even do another day ! It's by and large a safe city too. One piece of advice - wear flats no heels- city is cobbled! :)
Hello, My wife will be in Galway for work for 8 days and Ill be with her. I imagine I 'll do some day trips but will probably hang out in the city center and visiting pubs mostly and strolling around. Where is best area and or place to stay? (near quay street/) Any activity suggestions out side the normal touristy stuff would be appreciated. Are there any unique or unusual cool activities in or around Galway? Would love to drive a rally car, haha ! Were not super partiers so it would be nice...More

I would recommend Eyre Square, great location for day trips, close to shopping and a less than 5 minute walk from the nosier Quay Street. The Merick, Park House and The Raddison.

Quay Street or Eyre Square hotels? (6 Replies)
Hi, My 2 friends and I (we're 25) will be in Galway this July. We cant decide between Quay St or Eyre Square to book a hotel for three nights (thurs-sun). If anyone could give me any advice I would really appreciate it. Thanks. Jennifer

Galway is a small city. You can easily walk between Eyre Square and Quay Street in less than 10 minutes. I'd book whichever hotel meets your needs at the best price and not worry so much about location between those two.
Where to stay 1 night in Galway - traffic congestion? (39 Replies)
Hello, We will be arriving into SNN in June 2015. Because of the jet lag we don't want to drive too far, so the current plan is to stay in Galway for one night before heading further north to either Clifden or Westport to explore the Connemara area. Our flight arrival is at 7:30 am so I would anticipate arrival in Galway around 10 am. I've read about traffic congestion and difficult-to-navigate streets; is there a hotel that would be relatively easy to get to driving from Shannon? i.e....More

I'd recommend the Salthill Hotel. Traffic can be heavy at certain times in Galway, but I'd still hire a car and drive there. You can walk from Salthill to the city centre. There are closer hotels to the city centre but I don't bother staying in them as I love Salthill.
