On this live streaming webcam you get a perspective of Shop Street, in Galway City, Ireland. As the name suggests, this is the hub of the city’s shopping area. Once here, you will find not only shops and pubs, but Galway City Latin Quarter, which starts at High Street and seems to host one big party. Lynch’s Castle and Eyre Square are just up the road on the left, and to the right, down High Street, is the beautiful river Corrib that flows into Galway Bay just 200 metres away. The population of Galway city is around 78,000, making it Ireland’s fourth largest city, which will be the European Capital of Culture in 2020. Galway is known as Ireland’s festival capital, hosting numerous events throughout the year, including the Galway races, Ireland’s biggest Racehorse meeting over 7 days every summer. This live webcam is hosted by the Claddagh Jewellers Galway, makers of the world famous Claddagh Rings (Online Shop with worldwide shipping).
