  • Great place to see some massive ships up close. The Irish navy often dock here. It's beautiful part of the city.
  • Like getting down here for a walk...The streets going towards the Spanish arch are amazing... With brill shops.. buskers and coffee shops where you can sit outside... The street brings you on to the docks and a lovely place to stroll and see the boats ...A scenic part of Galway...
  • Not much to see here; there were a few boats docked. The Harbour hotel nearby is a good place to stop for a coffee or food.
  • Wish there were some tour here but it was still good. So calming
  • A Marina, nothing too special.

Where to stay in Galway

Stay at the center of Ireland's "Most Irish City," Galway City, by booking a hotel or hostel near Eyre Square, from which all city sights are walkable. If you prefer accommodation with more character, stay at a charming guesthouse or bed and breakfast just outside of the center, or look for lodging in the city's Latin Quarter, a bohemian neighborhood lined with cafes, galleries, and pubs. If you want to explore Galway County, book accommodations in the city, since it's a tourism and transportation hub on the West Coast. If you prefer the quiet countryside, seek out small, family-owned guesthouses on the Aran Islands or a cottage on the Connemara Peninsula.
