Shop Street

One of Galway’s main thoroughfares is aptly named Shop Street and unsurprisingly there is an abundance of retail outlets to be found spanning the entire street. There are also some landmark Galway stores; Anthony Ryan’s on Shop Street was founded in 1909 and specialises in all types of fashion. Galway is famous as the birthplace of the Claddagh ring and Thomas Dillon’s Claddagh Gold, established in 1750, has a reputation of being the original maker of the iconic piece of jewellery. Charlies Byrne’s Bookshop was awarded Best Bookshop in Ireland 2013/2014 in The Irish Times Best Shops in Ireland competition and has an array of new and pre-loved books on a multitude of subjects.
