The Spanish Arch is located at the end of the "Latin Quarter". I really didn't think it was much to see, but it's location makes it an easy walk from several pubs and dining places, so walking to it is really easy

There are many extremely beautiful things to see in Ireland and this is not one of them. We went down by the water so the Arches were not out of our way, but this is one item I would pass on unless you are in...More

An unexpected piece of city architecture, through which one passes to get from the museum to the main streets. Vaguely picturesque.

The Spanish Arch is located at the bottom of Quay Street, It is near the Galway Museum. It is worth a quick visit.

OK, nothing that special. Think about it. Christopher Columbus may have passed under these when he was on his way to discover America. It is written he attended one of the churches here to pray. It was his last port for provisions. Bit of history....More

Not much to see ... old arches from an earlier era ... along side the river that flows into Galway Bay. We only saw them as we had to pass under to get to the restrooms!

Not a whole lot to see, it's basically an old arch. The day we were there, musicians were busking nearby and the area was delightfully lively.
