Quay Street is a better version of Temple Bar in Dublin. Don't leave Galway without walking down this street and taking in all the lovely shops, bars and restaurants. This street is full of life and vibrant colors and no matter what time of the day you stroll down, you'll always hear the should of an aul fiddle coming out of one of the many traditional Irish Pubs !

I always looked forward to visiting Galway and the pedestrian Quay Street and High Street. It is lined with shops, pubs, and restaurants. There is plenty to see and do while ambling along the street. There are usually a few street performers as well.

Check out the "Saw Doctors" video of their version of the song "Downtown". You will see plenty of shots of the area and see for yourself.

An atmosphere like no other, it captures an Irish culture like no other! Whether it is walking through the bustling Irish street during the day or going for a few drinks at night watching the world wander past you, you are bound to have an amazing time and make friends along the way! You have every choice of cuisine available and the bars and pubs are some of the best in Ireland with live Irish music almost every night.
