Why ‘The Latin Quarter’?


The Latin Quarter has to be on of the most beautiful places in Galway City. From a Citylink perspective, our staff even like to take a stroll down on the occasional lunch break, particularly if the weather is good.

The cobble stoned streets, the amazing restaurants & fab boutiques on offer, it really is one of those places take it all in.

The Fish & Chips in McDonagh’s


Not to over-exaggerate but their award-winning Fish & Chips are to die for. Serving the freshest fish to the people of Galway for over four generations, McDonaghs has gained an appreciation from both locals & tourists alike. The restaurant is family run & are very generous with offering large portions of chips whilst our personal favourite is the cod. One to tick off the bucket list!

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, the Latin Quarter creates a very special festive atmosphere for shoppers, diners, revelers, business owners, locals and visitors to the city.

It also gives visitors the opportunity to take a photo of the overhead Christmas lights while they stroll through the Latin Quarter at their leisure.
