This is a small park in the center of Galway. The Meyrick Hotel is on one end. People relax in this area. Nice to walk through.

Love the Square, with all the flags for the clans and the Brown's doorway. Our last name is Brown and know some of our family came from here. Nothing like seeing history and learning about it.

We arrived in Galway on Saturday, when they have the market right off of Eyre Square. It was a nice way to stroll around, people watch, shop and have a couple of pints of beer.

Really nice green area to stroll around during the day or evening time! Plenty of life around with any amount of pubs and restaurants a few feet from the square

This is a nice spot in Galway. It has a great history, a little park, and is located centrally. There are coffee shops, a shopping centre, etc and if you sit in the park it can be rather nice!

Basically this is a city park. The bust of John Kennedy is just so-so as are the other "tourist" items in the park including Browne's Door and the Fountain, which apparently hasn't worked for some time.

Eyre (pronounced "air") Square is in the heart of Galway and a good starting off point for exploring. Lots of locals walking around and a good place to take a rest on a bench.

Eyre Square is a unique area to absorb the old history and future of Ireland the people watching from this spot is wonderful.

Passed through enroute to pub and restaurant. As a centre of attraction it needs a further up lift in my view.
