Within the medieval town walls of The Latin Quarter you’ll find the perfect mix of shops selling crafts, browsing through book or music shops, getting your fashion fix in the boutiques or taking home a beautiful piece of jewellery.
Most are individual, family-owned businesses, handed down from generation to the next. Not only will you enjoy your shopping experience but you’ll also be supporting a small local business.
A Claddagh ring is a must on your shopping list. Representing love, loyalty, and friendship, it’s a traditional Irish ring originating in The Claddagh village and is the perfect keepsake for anyone with a Galway connection. The famous Aran sweaters are another shopping essential, that has stood the fashion test of time since the 1800s!
