Travel Tips for Galway

Sqareyes Entertainment Centre

by BillNJ

Near my hotel (Park House Hotel) on Forster Street, there is an entertainment centre named Squareyes. Inside, I accessed the internet on one of the coin-operated computer terminals. Squareyes also has phones for long-distance calls -- and lots of video games. In addition, there is a cafe that serves food and drinks.

Sourbugger's tale of condoms...

by sourbugger

The Roman Catholic church is still a very powerfull force among the lives of many Galwagians. i write this tip today on Ash Wednesday, and walking down Shop street it was surprising quite how many people had an ashen cross on their forehead... perhaps sackcloth and ashes are the order of the day in this Irish recession.

The week before the start of lent is the time for the 'Solemn Novenas' in Galway. These intensly religious services extend over a period of a week or so and attract many hundreds of worshipers. Rather oddly in Galway the same week is also selected for 'Shag week' at the local university that is located opposite the Cathedral (shag week is not as bad as it sounds - it stands for Sexual Health and Guidance').

Anyway, back to the story. I was walking up past the cathedral carrying a large lastic sack. I noticed what I thought were a couple of burger bar vans in the Cathedral car park. Being a bit peckish I thought I might try one. Having forgot that it was Novena week, I soon realised that they were not selling burgers but row upon row of rosary beads and other catholi paraphanalia. So what was in the bag ? well, I was on my way to help with the aforementioned 'shag week' so it filled to bursting with over 1000 free condoms for students to use. At that point I was struck by a terrifying vision of what might happen if the sack (ver ironic considering the contents) burst all over the steps of the Cathedral as the worshippers exited. Thankfully (as a condom should) the bag held firm and I managed to deliver my load (oo-er misses)

A Worthy Tourist Trap

by DrexelDragon about King's Head

I didn't go here at nite, but I imagine it would have been a good time if I had. I ended up there for lunch one day to watch a premiership game. The food was decent, but the setting is better. It's wood throughout, and it's got the warm cozy feel. It's on the main pedestrian strip. It's bound to be filled with tourists, but it seems like are fair number of locals were there as well. Quite large with an upstairs bar too.

Ferries to Aran Islands

by Diana_h

Most ferries leave for the Aran Islands from Rossaveal (when you buy your ticket for the ferry buy a ticket for a bus to Rossaveal too).
Rossaveal is around 40-50 minutes drive from Galway.
Island Ferries go to the islands all year.
Island Ferries 091-568903,
In the summer there is a ferry from Galway to
the islands operated by O'Brien Shipping.
