The Medieval City Walls
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Parts of old city wall can be seen throughout in eyre square shopping centre, tax office and kirwans lane. Nice to see a little bit of the history and have sense of the city as it once was....

You can see what is left of these walls near the Spanish arch and near the Eyre Square Shopping centre, the walls have not all survived, but interesting to see what is left of the walls. But Galway is such a pretty city to wander about in, that it was always a must on my list, and now I have done this. Walk,run or stroll through Galway, its unique! Great to see the remaining walls though! A little bit of the history in the present day is always good.

City walls imply something surrounding the city. Small broken bits of wall do not a walled city make!

Although sold as a medieval walled city, they can be hard to find. Galway does however still feed like a medieval walled city so that's not so bad. The walls are the walls though - made of stone and just there - not so much to write home about ...

Seek the Medieval City Walls out in the mall and follow the course. Not alot of detail provided or sinage alerting visitors about this in my opinion.
