Landmark · Tourist Spot
A highlight for many visitors to Galway City is strolling along the medieval pedestrianised streets. The area is characterised by buskers, boutiques, unique shops, cafes, bars, & restaurants. It has rightfully earned its unofficial title as 'The Latin Quarter'. Well, now it's official and with support from Failte Ireland & Galway City Council, the area has adopted the name ‘The Latin Quarter’.

  • Love this area of Galway, a great place to find a bar and sit and people watch. Also some great street entertainment. My go to place for lunch.  more »
  • This area was so full of lively people, fabulous restaurants, and great fun! This was my favorite spot on our Ireland trip, can't wait to be back!  more »
  • Except for its name (yet another example of Ireland giving away its own culture for the sake of tourism), it is a beautiful street with much to do till very late. You will struggle to find seats at bars here, as if you were in temple bar, but you will definitely have some fun and meet some characters.
  • Beautiful area, but beware of the tours.. they simply didn’t allow us enough time to take in everything in the area
