Nice looking sculpture in Eyre Square lots of people mulling around.Honestly nothing special.most big cities have something similar.Large companies usually put some sort of artwork out front to bring something unique to their building.

This is a very unique artistic piece unlike any I have ever seen. It is worth the visit. Galway area is a great place to walk and you feel very safe.

Worth a visit even in the rain. There was a carnival visiting on this saint Patrick's weekend. Wet but still nice to see.

Its a landmark in Galway. I love it. It cannot be missed and is a great spot on a sunny day where one can sit and people watch until its time for lunch.
