    City Walls

    It is unfortunate that one of the only remaining parts of the city’s midieval wall is incorporated into a mall. It is near Eyre Square.

    Address: Near Eyre Square

    Spanish Arch

    Built 1584, it is part of the original city wall of Galway stretching to the River Corrib. I’m not sure why it’s called Spanish arch. It really isn’t that impressive.

    Directions: On the River Corrib, next to the main street in the city center.

    I guess it is an arch.

    Spanish Arch

    It takes all of about 30 seconds to take in. There's not much to it. You'll see it most likely once you walk the pedestrian strip. But see it just to say you saw it.

    Directions: Across from Jury's Inn at end of pedestrian walk next to Corrib River.

    And there it is...

    A stroll to Clifden Castle from Clifden town
    While in Clifden take a stroll to the Castle. I think the castle was private property but there are good views.
