Our adventure begins at Eyre Square, a lively public park where you can soak in the atmosphere before hopping on our stylish hop on hop off buses.

Interestingly, the origin of the name remains a mystery, with no clear connection to the Spanish. Today, the area houses the Galway City Museum, showcasing artifacts related to the city's fishing traditions and a dedicated medieval section.

Next up, bus stops 4 and 5 invite you to explore Salthill Village and Promenade. From a humble fishing village, Salthill has transformed into a bustling modern resort, offering a delightful blend of tradition and development. Take a leisurely stroll, breathe in the fresh marine breeze, and enjoy panoramic views of the Aran Islands to the right and Galway City to the left. Capture these moments with your camera – they are worth remembering!

As our double-decker bus glides through the Newcastle quarter, you will be treated to 360° panoramic views, immersing yourself in the historical heritage of this medieval city.
