Really amazing how they've incorporated the walls into the shopping centre without ruining them at all- it's very classy looking, and blends into the entire shopping centre.

Yes, there are medieval castle walls within this shopping mall. It is so cleverly landscaped into the building that it's almost easy to miss if you're not looking for them. I like that they have descriptions of the walls during Galway's past. Very informative and...More

Lovely to see the beautiful walls included in a modern shopping centre. The information on the wall is very informative and enough to keep your attention. Worth a visit!

Pleasant surprise in a new shopping centre to see part of the old city wall. Very well integrated into the design. Modern latte set sitting next to it drinking coffee.

Odd place to build your mall, but there it is built to encompass the old city walls. City walls lose some of their charm, I think.

Within the Eyre Square Mall are a portion of the original Galway City walls from the 1200s. Surrounded by shopping, this historic gem is certainly in an unusual location. I am glad they spared this when they built the walls and reached this unusual compromise....More

It never occurred to me when we went into a shopping center and I imbibed coffee while my wife shopped that afterwards we would find historical artifacts and learn so much about the history of Galway. A serendipitous and pleasant discovery.

One one hand, it was odd to see such antiquities encased in a shopping mall. On the other, it was great to see the old preserved and new thriving all in the same locale.

Interesting place to visit - quick stop off as you are visiting town but nothing that is overwhelmingly important to see - if you are in the area go check it out but not likely worth a specific planned stop. Cool to see the wall...More
