Rings come in distinct types, and this one is unique to Galway. It’s called Claddagh – a band of two hands holding a heart which wears a crown. It’s motif is ‘Let Love and Friendship Reign’ and this has served as the local wedding band for 200 years. Get a local to tell you the story of how it came to be. The staff is very friendly, and the rings are utterly beautiful. They come for all ages and all budgets. You can also get bracelets, brooches, and cufflinks.
Now, there are two things you can do here – buy a ring or visit a museum. Called the smallest museum in Europe, the display here showcases some of the world’s oldest and also some of the world’s smallest Claddagh rings. The rings are shown in the various stages of their manufacture. Other artefacts include stone axe heads from the Stone Age.
