    the only positive note is that the stalls selling only handmade product, otherwise call it market is an understatement because I am only four stalls on the cross, to be a market is really very sad. the Church adjacent to little to see!!!

    I'm a sucker for knits, and there are some beautiful designs here. It was a little too touristy though. For authentic hand knits and weaves, go to O'Maille's.

    I stopped in at The Galway Woolen Market on a recent bus tour through Ireland. A nicer group of ladies you could not have met. They were kind and helpful and pleasant to talk to. The store has a tremendous amount of reasonably priced souvenirs that you cannot find anywhere else. I only wish I had brought a larger suitcase.

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.
