Set Current Location
Located just off Eyre Square, the Corrib Shopping Centre is a compact shopping mall. Recently renovated, this mall now boasts a new car park and better disabled access. The mall incorporates a wide range of shops, from newsagents to hairdressers to chemists. The main outlet in this centre is Roches Stores. This department store sells cosmetics and accessories, menswear, womens wear and household goods, and also has a spacious cafe for worn-out shoppers. Supervalu, the supermarket chain, has recently set up downstairs with one of the biggest food stores in Galway. The centre contains a large, multi-story car park, which provides an ideal base for parking when shopping in the city centre.
The Eyre Square Shopping Center was built on the site of an old timber yard in an effort to breathe life into the city and make use of the wasteland in that area. Today, it has a bustling atmosphere, and contains a range of specialist shops including men and women clothing, food, sport, gifts, books, household goods, department stores and cafes. One of the main attractions of the center has to be the antique fair that is held every Saturday, just at the back of the famous north-eastern corner of Galway's 14th-century city wall, which has been incorporated into the center's structure. The architecture is an intriguing blend of ancient stone and modern design.
The Galway Shopping Centre is situated on the Headford Road. This was the first shopping centre established on Galway's near outskirts. It boasts almost one hundred shops, selling everything from hardware to music to clothes to food. The centre has been recently renovated; it is now fully enclosed but remains relatively airy. The largest shops are Penney's department store selling a range of clothes for all the family, and Tesco's supermarket. Also attached to the centre is the upgraded LeisureDome, which includes a bowling alley, a laser games area and a children's play area, which is ideal if you want a little peace while shopping. The Peak Physique sporting facility is also located here. There are excellent car parking facilities, with spaces for over 800 cars.
This retail park caters for consumers in search of specialist shops. It boasts a large vegetable market and garden center. This complex also houses smaller, newly established businesses featuring computers and specialist electrical goods. Located alongside these businesses is one of Galway's most comprehensive motorbike shops. There are plenty of parking spaces nearby as well.
