The Mary Gibbons tours are a good value, and if you have a guide with Martin's knowledge and expertise, her tours are an excellent way to visit this remarkable ancient site.
... every year (during winter solstice) the sun rays are directed thorugh a "roofbox" which basically shoots the sun rays directly onto the tomb within the passageway - and you can see all of that while you visit!

Located near the Spanish Arch, the Galway Museum is a modern multi-level facility that provides excellent displays on the history, life and times of Galway City.
We are from Galway and have been to the museum a few times, it is a free attraction and well worth a visit if you are in Galway, it is also beside the Spanish arch and the Claddagh is just across from it

James Joyce' statue, on Earl Street, a few steps off O'Connell Street in Dublin is a favorite of locals and tourists alike.
