Any Galway travel guide will tell you this is the Galway shopping central, though it also commemorates JFK (you’ll find a portrait bust of the man in the place). It’s an old square; in mediaeval times it used to be called the Green and even since then, it’s been a popular hangout for the people. The park is smack dab in the middle of Galway’s city centre; that, and the two adjacent shopping streets make this the most popular meeting place in the city. The whole place is chock full of eateries too; grab a snack, sit down somewhere with a good vantage point and people watch. Like in Quay Street, you’ll find buskers and street performers a-plenty. Don’t feel like being outside? Head into one of the many pubs and regale the locals with your tales; and if you don’t everyone will still know your name by the hour. This is also one of the central locations within the city, with the train and bus stations right behind it; in other words, an excellent place to start your Galway tour.
