If you're in Galway, you have to take a stroll down this street. Plenty to see and do. Some great pubs.

Just keep in Mind that good Friday is the only day in the year when no alcohol is sold in Ireland. Apart from that you should be fine not like Christmas day where towns and streets are like ghost towns.
