Hotels in Galway City
Eyre Square Galway City
Friendly, Lively, Creative, Musical, Historical, Cultural and Fun. Galway (Gaillimh) is one of Ireland's most entertaining and engaging cities while it is also known for being Ireland's and Europe’s friendliest city.
Galway City offers a great choice of restaurants which always offer a great selection of food while Galway pubs are always buzzing and offer live music and great craiic. A recent trend in cafe culture offer Galway citizens and visitors front-row seats to the always present buskers and street theatre that Galway is known for.
Historical sights of the medieval town walls of Galway can be found right next to the shopping area where you can buy handcrafted Claddagh rings, books and musical instruments among other unique items. Walk over ancient bridges which traverse the salmon-stuffed River Corrib, past the city cathedral and continue to Salthill where a long promenade leads you out onto Galway Bay which is known as the source of the area's famous oysters. While Galway is steeped in history, the city buzzes with a contemporary vibe, thanks to it's lively student presence who make up a quarter of the population for over half the year. Galway City's energy and creativity have seen it designated the European Capital of Culture in 2020.
