Lovely area with various street performers and a wide selection of restaurants and bars. Many places to choose from and pretty lively.

Spent every evening over the three days we were in Galway enjoying everything there was on offer. Great bars, restaurants, shops & cafes with every imaginable street performer adding to the buzz & excitement.

Lots of stores, pubs, restaurants and historical sights. Recommend you stay ata hotel close by as parking is non-existent. If you're looking for souvenirs, jewelry or whiskey you can find it here.

A lot of people walk all day in the streets of this neighborhood. You can see musicians everywhere, people who dance, people eating, and a lot of places to shop, the heart of Galway.

By day or night Galway streets are alive with shopping, pub stops and people watching. This town is the heart of small towns in Ireland

What a several block section for touristy us! It is jam packed with pubs, restaurants, shops, performers, and people of all ages, shapes, sizes, and personalities. The cobblestone streets are easy to navigate, which is a real plus because parking places are hard to find....More

Most of the small craft and gift shops stay open on Saturdays to 06;00 pm ... I believe in Summer time as it's a lot of tourists , it's really not a problem to do shopping
