Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Western Ireland / Province of Connacht / County Galway / Galway / Eyre Square
Admire the scenery as you stroll through Eyre Square, Galway's urban park located in the city center. The site officially took the name John F. Kennedy Memorial Park in 1965. Because the park connects to many of the shopping streets, it serves as a popular meeting place. Pick up souvenirs and take in the culture on the nearby William Street or Shop Street. Mayor Edward Eyre, for whom the park was named originally, founded the site in 1710. In the time since, it has undergone several changes, including the addition of stone walls in 1801, redevelopment in Georgian style, and a complete reconstruction in the 1960s before reopening with its new name. With our custom trip planner, Galway attractions like Eyre Square can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
