a quick turn off the main street in the Latin Quarter. we got there after it closed so we looked up information online and peered through the glass at the foundations laid hundreds of years ago.

This exhibit is right in the middle of the Latin quarter. Easy to find down a small alley. Well preserved foundation with good historical story boards.

While not the most spectacular attraction, this is still impressive and worth the time if you are in Galway. Only takes minutes to soak up the history presented. It is the earliest surviving settlement structure within the medieval walls of Galway. It is also important to note that the Hall of the Red Earl (Halla An Iarla Rua) is one of the city's most significant archeological landmarks. You'll see a few of the 11 000 items excavated including clay pipes, gold cufflinks, and an incomplete human skull. Admission is free, so head over to Druid Lane!

It’s an interesting place to stop by, but don’t make a big deal about planning for it. You’ll spend 5 minutes max here. It’s a unique piece of history and the story behind discovering it is fun, but there isn’t much else to it.

I sought this out but even I with all my inrterest in archaeology thought this was amazingly well and expensively protected but is basically a set of foundations of a hall. Not terribly interesting - gave it 5 minutes.

We woke up early on Monday, (before 10 AM). and not many things in the town were open...except for this! It's an interesting place, but very small. We saw the whole thing in 15 minutes.

Congratulations to Galway City for this innovative way to explore their history. The glass panels let this site be seen 24/7. You can see the original Hal of the Red Earl illustrated on a City map of Galway printed in 1651. I wonder if the masonry work of today will last hundreds of years.

I stumbled upon these ruins whilst on a walking tour of the city of Galway. They are small and hidden away down a side street. Worth a couple of minutes.

We stumbled about the Hall of the Red Earl while walking around the Latin Quarter in the evening. Alas, it was closed, and we never made it back during opening hours, but the glass walls which allow for viewing, along with descriptive plaques, make it a decent place to take a look at even when closed. I would certainly recommend stopping by hear while strolling through the Latin Quarter.
