Hands down, my favorite place in Ireland. There were so many stores to visit and it was definitely a nice seashore city. I would love to visit again. The food vendors were really good as well. I want to go back and visit. It was definitely worth a full day of activities.

This area of the city has a really nice, vibrant and friendly feel. There are lots of places to pop into and visit. Definitely worth a gander.

Book a tour to the Cliffs or Aran islands… Galway is pretty much a lot of restaurants and hotels with not much history to see! The Galway city museum is nice.

This street was very busy with foot traffic. An already narrow street has been made narrower with the pubs having outdoor seating, which they should have. The Galway Girl statue can be found at #22.

Right in the middle of town. Allocate ten minutes or two hours depending on how much shopping you want to do and beers you want to have.

Busy and sure has a lot of hustle and bustle. Great food and a must visit while in Galway. All types of food. Note, most of the restaurants stop serving food after 9-9:30 pm.

University city so filled with students as well as tourists. Lots of bars, street music and people-watching.

We walked down Quay street and the , oddly named, Latin Quarter. Busy and full of energy. Some nice shops, and pubs, we may have tried a few. We enjoyed the talented musicians playing on street corners.

Street nicely designed and in the heart of the city, lot of shops and places to eat or drink.

But I found it more overcrowded and chaotic to enjoy, maybe I went on a busier day than normal and missed the charm of the street.

It did look like it had many historical buildings that could be enjoyed.

My husband and I walked around this area and the Latin Quarter for 30-45 minutes on a tour pit stop. Very, very busy and crowded area. Keep an eye on your kids and leash your dogs! Plenty of shops, pubs, and restaurants. We also saw a few buskers plus a man and his dog makong some engravings. Not sure how crucial a role the dog played in the process.
