The Latin Quarter

The Latin Quarter

The Latin Quarter – often referred to as the cultural heart of Galway – is home to many of the city’s quirkiest and best-known shops, pubs, restaurants and hotels, along with historic landmarks, events and attractions. It’s always a popular destination for local Galwegians and visitors to the city alike to socialise, boasting extensive pedestrianised cobblestoned streets that offer a unique festive-like atmosphere regularly lined with street performers and entertainers. It is defined by some of the city’s most historic landmarks and stretches from the Spanish Arch at Long Walk to O’Brien’s Bridge to St Nicholas’ Church and back (via Buttermilk Lane) to An Taibhdhearc on Middle Street, and provides the heartbeat to the City of the Tribes
