i visited the Eyre square twice within a week and enjoyed the experience of shopping and walking around the square. The people are friendly and the little shops and pubs are worth watching.

We had our taxi drop us off in the square. Its artsy with lots of stores and pubs around. Looks like it would be a cool spot to chill and people watch on a nice day but it was raining and windy so we didn't hang around long.

Eyre Square is the crossroads of Galway city. The buses, locals, and tourists pass through and around it. It is great for people watching. It is also the place for political protest. By chance, we happened to be there when there was a large memorial for those killed in an act of terrorism in Orlando. The statue seen above is... More

Eyre Square is located a couple blocks past Quay Street, if you just keep walking straight, and it's a nice park that's worth the stop. It's lined with pubs, stores and hotels and is pretty central in the city. It's a good place to end a walk, to sit down on a bench and peoplewatch for awhile.
