“History while you shop”

The Medieval City Walls
Reviewed 6 September 2017

Stopped in as part of my walking tour of Galway. It was amazing that they preserved these ancient walls within a modern shopping center. You will want to sit at the cafe by the old walls and enjoy a cup pf coffee or tea.

We went in specifically to see the wall which was neat, but also strange that there is a mall around it - glad we saw it but plenty of other monument and buildings to see if this isn't on your list

This was just part of the Galway experience for us. I wouldn't have missed seeing the walls, but it certainly would not have been a destination just for its own sake. Seeing them was just part of a very nice holiday.

It's a cool little thing to check out if you're at the Eyre Square shopping centre, it's downstairs in the food court area. Built in the 1500s, it's very interesting to see it in a shopping centre with some mannequins and such around on the top of it.

This Mall has enclosed a large section of The City Walls and has great placards giving insight into the walls themselves - out of the rain. The Mall itself has all kinds of shopping for grocery food as well as tourist shops
