County Clare, Galway, and the Aran Islands Sights

Galway City Museum

Published 01/10/2017

Fodor's Review

The city's civic museum, housed in a modern building behind the Spanish Arch, contains materials relating to local history: old photographs, antiquities (the oldest is a stone ax head carbon-dated to 3500 BC), and other historical gewgaws, including a full-scale Galway Hooker (turf-carrying boat) in the stairwell. Its café, The Kitchen, is a lively lunch and coffee spot.
