The Galway Tourist Office is on Forster Street, Galway City (www.galway.ie; 091/537-700). The city also has a smaller tourist information point on Eyre Square.

City Layout

The core of downtown Galway lies between Eyre Square on the east and the River Corrib on the west. The main thoroughfare begins west of Eyre Square. Its name changes -- from William to Shop, Main Guard, and Bridge -- before it crosses the River Corrib and changes again. If that sounds confusing, well, it is a bit. But the streets are all short and well marked, and it's fairly simple to find your way around the city center.
