The Galmont Hotel is located on Lough Atalia Road, just minutes from Eyre Square in Galway, making it an ideal place to stay.
Eyre Square is one of the most famous and well known landmarks in Galway and is home to many events such as the Comedy Festival and the Christmas Markets.
In 1965, the square was officially renamed "John F. Kennedy Memorial Park" in honour of U.S. President John F. Kennedy who visited and made a speech in June 1963.
There are many landmarks throughout Eyre Square such as the Bank of Ireland building which was built in 1836.
It houses the Galway Civic Sword and Mace which were authority symbols of the Mayor and Corporation dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries.
The Browne doorway is also another attraction in Eyre Square which dates back from 1627. It was originally the doorway of the Browne family's home on Lower Abbeygate Street, but was moved in to Eyre Square in 1905 by the Galway Archaeological Society.
Eyre Square Shopping Centre plays an important commercial role in the city and also has been recently redeveloped however it also has an important historical role as it contains a restored section of the Medieval City Wall with Penrice Tower at the northern end and Shoemakes Tower standing above an entry leading to an underground section of the 1647 bastion.
So if you want to be near all the action and near Eyre Square it must be The Galmont Hotel!
