“The Spanish Arch is one of the oldest parts of Galway City, and was once used as a docking area for Spanish traders and ships in the 17th and 18th centuries, which is where it gets its namesake. Walking through the Arch, you’ll be able to walk one of Galway’s most famous promenades, the Long Walk. It’s one of Galway’s best-known sites, and one of the best places for enjoying the evening sun in the summer. (Be warned though, it's not really a long walk!) If you're interested in history and have a little time to spend, you could also pop into Galway City Museum which is just off to the left when you pass under the Spanish Arch. It has a broad range, showing exhibits based on periods such as Ancient Roman Civilization, World War I and, of course, local Irish history, among many others. Spread across three floors, many of the exhibits are highly interactive, so it's great for families, and make sure to check out the lovely views from the top floor. On top of all of that, entrance is free! If you're feeling a bit hungry after all the sight-seeing, there are some great places to eat close by. The Kitchen, located in the museum, is fantastic for brunch or even just for a coffee, and Ard Bia, which sits on the water just in front of the Spanish Arch, is one of the most unique restaurants in Galway City; we'd recommend everything they serve in there! If you feel like something a little more oriental, you can choose from Thai Garden Galway, or Lime. Lime has quite an extensive menu for vegans and vegetarians, and specialise moreso in Asian Fusion, whereas Thai Garden can provide you with some authentic Thai food in a gorgeous setting. ”
