Galway provides a unique shopping experience with a wide range of shops to cater for the tastes of both visitors and locals alike. As well as the high street shops, there is an interesting variety of specialist and tourist orientated shops, which offer unique and interesting gifts. Many of the most interesting shops are located in small districts within the city centre including The Latin Quarter, The Westend and at stalls in Galway's famous bustling outdoor market which has been trading in Church lane by St Nicholas' Church for literally centuries. The city centre shopping areas are supplemented by a number of enclosed shopping centres, most of which are situated on the city's outskirts. Also see our recommended top 5 shops for gifts.
