Once you are done here and ready to get started, hop on the Bus Tour and head towards bus stop 3, the Spanish Arch: Two remaining arches that were part of the extension of the city wall, built in the 16th century. Truth is, it is not clear where the name comes from, as there is not know relationship between the Spanish and the building of these arches. Today, the area is home to the Galway City Museum, with a collection of artefacts related mainly to the fishing industry -consistent with the city traditions- and a dedicated medieval section.
