Where To Eat and Stay in Galway City

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Galway city today has West End girls, and West End boys. There are West End tourists, and West End stalwarts, upstarts, artists, chefs, mixologists, sommeliers, baristas, tea aficionados and even guys who will fix your shoes and sell you some fish. The energy of Galway city - Capital of Culture 2020! - which used to thrum around Eyre Square, has been trickling westwards for several years now, as a beautiful beatnik culture has opened up shuttered spaces, in the zone you reach after you cross one of the three bridges. The West End is a classic example of people power: give creative people spaces that they can afford to rent, and they will create a cultural meshwork that everyone wants. It’s beautiful.
