The Latin Quarter
Where Galway Comes Alive...
The Latin Quarter of Galway City extends from the Spanish Arch to O’Brien’s Bridge to St Nicholas’ Church to Middle Street and features many well fine examples of the city’s medieval heritage.
Here in The House Hotel Galway we are located in the heart of Galway’s Latin Quarter, one of just a few hotels in Galway. The Latin Quarter is the cultural heart of Galway city and home to many of the city’s quirkiest, owner ran and best-known pubs, restaurants in Galway, and unique independent shops and cafes, along with historic buildings.
All along the short cobblestoned stretch of the road, known as High Street are small, interesting unique shops. The Kilkenny Shop has a good range of goods, especially knits and pottery. Galway Woollen Market will sell you the wool to knit your own sweater or jacket. Aunty Nellie’s famous sweet shop is also located on High Street where you can enjoy delicious boiled sweets, jellies, fudge and chocolates!
Wander through the cobbled streets and enjoy the live entertainment on the streets of Galway’s favourite quarter. Running from the famous Spanish Arch up to the lively spots on Quay Street, The Latin Quarter extends around St Nicholas’ Church and Middle Street. Within The Latin Quarter you will find a number of examples of our city’s medieval history.
