Where to stay near Spanish Arch

About Spanish Arch

Located near Galway’s iconic Docks area, the Spanish Arch is one of two remaining arches on the Ceann an Bhalla (Front Wall), dating back to 1584. The Spanish Arch was originally created to protect the city's quays and is now a prominent historic landmark, serving as a popular spot for photographs and history lovers.

Don’t miss seeing the notable wooden structure at the arch, called Madonna of the Quays. It was created by renowned local artist Claire Sheridan. You can also walk under the Spanish Arch by using the pathway called The Long Walk, which was added to the quays in the 18th century by the wealthy Eyre family.

The Spanish Arch’s central location makes it easy to combine a visit with some of Galway’s other prominent attractions, including the neighbouring Galway City Museum and nearby Fisheries Watchtower Museum. You’ll also find a range of dining options nearby, from upscale Thai dishes at Thai Garden Restaurant to delicious burritos at Boojum.

Getting there

The Spanish Arch is about 500 metres from the centre of Galway or 800 metres from the Galway Ceannt railway station. You can drive there in about 15 minutes from Galway Airport.
