The historic City of Galway falls on the river banks of river Corrib and the Atlantic Ocean. The City has a history all over it with charming old buildings and monuments as well as unique small shops and vitrines. A walk through the City’s cobbled streets is an absolute treat as you are greeted by the City’s rich culture, history, shops and amazing people.
The City was built in the 12th century and was initially called “the city of tribes”. It was originally walled, and to this day, parts of those walls remain intact in the City. As proof of how the City has evolved as well as the mix of the old and the new, the Eyre square shopping centre hopping mall still contains part of the historic wall. Along with its monuments, nature is breathtaking, especially if you walk down River Corrib’s riverwalk.
The building is right next to amazing destinations. At just an 11-minute walk, you’ll find yourself in front of the River Corrib and by the historical Menlo castle on its bank. The historical Martin Tea-House Folly house is a 13-minute walk away. Ten minutes by car, you’ll find yourself in the gorgeous City of Salthill, a beach town. For all your daily needs, Aldi is a six-minute drive away, and the Galway City Museum and the famous coffee shop Mocha beans are at a 12-minute drive. Newcastle park is a 12-minute drive away.
