Tiny little lane... simple cut across / walk through. Not much else I can say about it, but worth a walk through if you have time.

You will stumble onto this lane from Quay Street in the Latin Quarter. A lot of history in this lane and quite nice to visit

We had a family celebration dinner here. 9 of us dined early on a Saturday evening. While the food got mixed reviews, our server appeared as if she didn't want to be there at all, no smile and no interaction. Pity because the prices you pay here you expect a decent level of service.

Had a superb family dinner on Saturday evening. Excellently cooked and presented dinner. Good choices of fish on the menu. Nice selection of wine's both white and red. Well worth going here for that special occasion. The surroundings were very ambient. Staff were very attentive.

Enjoyed this quaint street while shopping in the Latin Quarter. Nice for photos but nothing more to add than that.

Great little lane to duck into to avoid the crowds. Also has some cute shops and places to eat. It does look cute, and since there is less traffic I'd take pictures here rather than on the main street.

A narrow pedestrian lane running from cross street through to Quay street through buildings reminiscent of medieval times with wonderful windows in the wonderful Galway city. Cosy pubs and shabby chic boutique shops are through the doorways. Goyas for coffee and cake or the seafood restaurant for dinner- all fresh and delicious. Love it!

The nights of entertainment can be great experience when they on so drop by to see and it is great to see more history of Galway.
