The Latin Quarter of Galway City extends from the Spanish Arch to O’Brien’s Bridge to St Nicholas’ Church to Middle Street and features many well fine examples of the city’s medieval heritage. It is home to many of Galway’s best-known shops, pubs, restaurants and hotels along with historic buildings. All along the short cobblestoned stretch of the road, known as High Street are small, interesting unique shops. Kilkenny Shop has a good range of goods, especially knits and pottery. Galway Woollen Market will sell you the wool to knit your own sweater or jacket
