Eyre Square information
Lonely Planet review
Galway's central public square is busy in all but the harshest weather. It's a welcome open green space with sculptures and pathways. Its lawns are formally named Kennedy Park in commemoration of JFK's visit to Galway, though you'll never hear locals refer to it as anything but Eyre Square.
