Lively "village green"

This area was buzzing with shoppers and others who were just enjoying a nice December evening in Galway. The decorations and surrounding shops, booths, and such were worth seeing.

This is a fabulous place to visit any time of the year. Great atmosphere great people great places to go. The Christmas market is a must see not as good as Prague or Berlin but definitely still worth a visit . I can highly recommend eyre square .

We had a wonderful time wandering the stalls of the Christmas Market last week. Shout out to the Man of Arn and Provencal stalls, as well as to the biergarten! Wonderful ride on the ferris wheel!

The Galway Christmas Market has been going a few years and getting bigger and better every year. Until now 2016! Someone somewhere in their wisdom decided that the Christmas Market could no longer be situated on the grass of Eyre Sq where it has been on previous years. No walking up and down the pathways browsing all the different stalls.... More

Lovely and vibrant. Great Christmas lights and would visit just to see the street entertainers alone. Right next to Christmas market and ferris wheel.

Central hub in Galway City but not especially nice. Usually full of traffic by day and drunk revellers by night looking for taxis home after a night on the batter. All you get is fast food rubbish and sick. Galway is fantastic, Eyre Square is not.

It's a good landmark for Galway. I'm not sure there's much of a draw there unless you're grabbing coffee, or lunch. Maybe sitting outside on a patio for a beer somewhere, it might orovide good people watching. I will say I was there during the Xmas Market time, and it was dumped on with a Ferris wheel, carousel, and some... More
