Quay street is a must see for any visitor to Galway city, full of colour, music and sights. The street is full of fantastic traditional Irish pubs and some very good local and international style restaurants. The early bird or pre theatre offers are very attractive.

An easy walk through town, there are shops and restaurants for all tastes and just about anything you'd want to buy. Start at Eyre Square and walk all the way to the waterfront in about 10 minutes. A vibrant and fun area!

Overated and not what I expected. It may have history it's overshadowed by busking and pubs. I wouldn't recommend it
