This is where all the people gather. There is a beautiful little park in the center of Eyre Square, surrounded by Shopping centre, pubs and places to eat. Lots of people walking through the park, some lying around sunbathing, others sitting down watching all the activity or taking photographs. You can't visit Galway without popping into Eyre Square.

Away from the bustling Latin quarter and Quay Street,but still only a few minutes walk away. Ideal location to meet up and plan your next adventure. From here you are ideally located. You are 10 minutes away from everything in Galways centre. Nice open space. Bus station. Taxi's.

This area is getting worse every summer. The guards never stop any antisocial behaviour or move them on. Ive never had many issues but if you are easily intimidated don't hang around here alone. I see new addicts begging all the time.

If you are staying in Galway I highly recommend the hotels that are around Eyre Square. This was such a nice park and so convienient for us. It allowed us easy access to the tour bus stations, excellent food options, and handy Pharmacy and Grocery stores for quick fill ups.

We stayed nearby in the Meyrick Hotel, so we had to walk through the park to get to the shops. The old reminent of the wall was there to see as was an interesting piece of artwork which might have represented sails. You could catch a ride in a horse-drawn cart.

Eyre square is just as it says a square in the middle of a city where the buses seem to run from. It has a small park but nothing exciting.

Eyre Square is best avoided. Nothing other than a square in town. Neglected - no sign of any effort to keep clean, make it a nice place to gather - half hearted effort at few flowers - very overrated - as is Galway City itself. Generally found it to be dirty and drab. Unless you into nightlife it has nothing... More

The one way system runs round the Square. Some nice trees and planting. Refugees making a fire for the night. Some art to read and admire. Probably better when it's warmer.
