“Very nice neighborhood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

Very touristic, but nice architecture with cobbled stone streets. Worth a visit. Nice restaurants and bars with live music to choose from.

“Great Place For People Watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

If you enjoy people watching, Eyre Square is the place for you. Located just off the main shopping area, it's a nice respite from the stores and shops. The Tourist Information Office is only a block or two away, so you can get a bunch of information from them, and bring it back to Eyre Square to read. Get some cheese and bread from Sheridans Cheesemongers and have a picnic in Eyre Square. It's a great way to get to know the people of Galway.

“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.
