“Great place to chill out.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Brilliant place to chill out on a nice day. People watch, have a coffee, have a sneaky pint, lunch etc. There's always a group of people doing something like playing instruments, juggling, playing tag rugby or football.

“Heart of the city”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

I had heard about the famous Eyre Square many times before my visit so it was great to see it in the flesh. The square is but the heart of the city with many bars and restaurants within walking distance but thats about it.

“Great open space...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

A changing canvas... Beautiful square of parkland in Galway city... Great for picnics or meeting place with friends... Many pubs and shops overlook the square and the day I was there buskers and street performers were wandering about...

“Shopping center.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

If you are from a large U.S. city, Eyre Square is a smallish shopping center, nothing really special.

Great place for people watching and really the centre of the city. Surrounded by pubs shops and hotels and a lively place to hang out for a while..
