  • It's alright, but never go there as there's no shops in it that I would normally buy from.
  • Lots of pubs and nightlife on the area. This is also a food paradise. Lots of souvenir and vintage shops layered on each streets. You will notice a number of high caliber music performance at its simplest form. This is because you will see performers / buskers on the street side pouring their souls into their music. A must visit place in Galway.
  • In vino, veritas. Pissed and honest about it
  • Nice shops and Health care area.
  • Decent lunch. Good location to enjoy some food.
