Historical insights

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

The small suburb and district of Salthill has one of the most popular promenades in the region. Visitors can take a stroll and sight ships, taste local delicacies and stop at a pub. Legend has it that a kick against the wall at the end of the promenade brings luck.
