There was a Royal Navy boat in dock when we visited, holding some sort of special event to which they had invited veterans. There were several elderly men in uniform with lots of medals on their chests, walking around near the naval ship. There are several old buildings of interest and it is quite photogenic.

We toured this area of Galway in late March. It was very interesting to see the boats coming and going and there was a nice variety of restaurants and pubs to choose from.

This place is good for spending evening hours during sunset and give great opportunities for taking stunning photos with a lovely view of beautiful colorful houses and yachts and sunset colors….
A must visit when in town!
