Galway is Ireland’s cultural, language, traditional music and artistic capital. The city centre is famous for its lively ambience, street entertainment, shopping, cafes and pubs. As the centre of the city is all walking streets, this is best explored on foot starting at Eyre Square and ending at the Claddagh Quay or vice versa. The Latin Quarter is veritably buzzing from the eclectic legacy of a European influenced maritime past which starts at the Spanish Arch. Dining and pubs are numerous, and the Quays Bar, Naughton’s Pub and McDonagh’s seafood restaurant are all favourites.
