“Great little green space!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

This was a noisy but nice place in the middle of the city to sit & people watch. There are a couple of sculptures in the park & President Kennedy had visited & spoke from there. It is surrounded by places to get a sandwich & coffee & just rest!.

“ok, for just passing by”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Nice little area, but nothing to go out of your way to see. We passed it on our way to the city center, it's a good landmark to get your bearings.

“Central in Galway”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Not too much to see but when you find Eyre Square, you find the shops, pubs and restaurants just "around the corner"...

“Interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

President Kennedy was here, thus the alternative name, and many Americans can trace their background here. The park is small but has some seating to watch the people go by. We caught our bus from here each day.
