Next to the Spanish Arch is the city museum of Galway. The numerous travelling and permanent exhibitions are dedicated to archaeology, medieval life, world wars and industrial development.

Inner city park

Not far from the station is Eyre Square. The romantic square with adjoining city forest is a popular meeting place for locals and visitors. Lawns, fountains and the Galway Hookers monument provide a wonderful starting point to the city's shopping areas.

Strolling the Atlantic Ocean
