Fodor's Review

Built in 1584 to protect the quays where Spanish ships unloaded cargoes of wines and brandies, the hefty stone arch is now the central feature of the newly restored Spanish Parade, a riverside piazza located near Wolfe Tone Bridge. It's another reminder of Galway's—and Ireland's—past links with Spain, and is a much-loved local landmark.
