Store Your Luggage Around Galway With Bounce

Galway is found on the west coast of Ireland, one of the most beautiful and unique parts of the country. The city manages to be cosmopolitan while still retaining its true Irish character and boasts incredible natural beauty with rugged coastlines, grand mountain ranges, sprawling fields, and lush boglands. Explore Galway and you'll come across areas dating back to medieval days, as well as more modern parts of town. In Galway, you’ll find great boutiques, antique shops, and plenty of traditional Irish pubs where you can drink as much dark stout as you desire. 

Galway began as a humble fishing village up until 1232 when it became an official fortified town. It’s come a long way since then, and today the city celebrates it's long ago, and not so long ago, past in some very diverse museums. Foodies will love dining at all of the fantastic restaurants, and the adventurous travelers will have more than enough to keep them satisfied throughout the town. With many annual festivals to look forward to, like the Galway Arts Festival, beautiful beaches, and a whole maze of cobblestone streets to explore, you’ll never get bored in Galway.

The streets of this Irish city were not designed for suitcases on wheels. If you don't want to lose yours—the wheels, not the suitcase, that is—leave your luggage at a Bounce luggage storage service in Galway. It'll save you the hassle and make exploring the city so much more fun.

Top things to do in Galway

It’s probably quicker to make a list of the things you don't want to do in Galway than the ones you do. There are so many great attractions and so much going on every day that it can be hard to decide where to start. To help you whittle down your must-see list a little, we’ve put together a selection of a few of the city’s best museums, shopping locations, and restaurants.

Museums in Galway

The Irish are renowned for being multifaceted characters, and that's reflected in the vast collection of museums in Galway. Many of this city’s museums are unlike anything found in other parts of the world, so be prepared to see and learn some awesome new things.

Legend of the Claddagh Ring

The Claddagh ring is a world-renowned piece of jewelry followed by some pretty intriguing legends. You can learn all about the ring's story and the myths surrounding it at the Legend of the Claddagh Ring Museum. From the first ring ever produced to the films made about it, they’re fascinating tales that will keep you interested all throughout your visit. While you’re here, you'll get to watch a ring being made and might even decide to purchase one for the love of your life as a souvenir of your visit to Galway.

Legend of the Claddagh Ring bag policy

With free entry, there’s no reason not to stop by this museum. Although everyone is welcome at the Legend of the Claddagh Ring, it’s not guaranteed that your bags can come in with you. For simplicity and peace of mind, guests should store luggage before entering the museum.

Fisheries Watchtower Museum

The Fisheries Watchtower Museum is housed in a mid-19th century tower on the banks of the River Corrib. The museum is dedicated to preserving the history of draft net fishing in Galway Bay. Once a draft netting station for unloading catches, as well as a lookout point for spotting illegal fishing activities, the tower now contains artifacts, documents, and aquariums full of examples of fish found in the river. Although it’s one of the smallest museums in the city, it’s well worth stopping by.

Fisheries Watchtower Museum bag policy

Although this museum doesn’t state its bag policy, it might be a good idea to store your oversized belongings before visiting because there isn’t much space inside. We’ve got you covered at Bounce, just stop by one of our luggage storage spots on the way and drop off any unneeded items.

Computer and Communications Museum of Ireland

If you tend to think your mobile phone is out of date after you've had it for a few years, you'll consider most of the exhibitions at the Computer and Communications Museum of Ireland absolute dinosaurs. At this museum, you can catch a glimpse into the past and discover all about communications before the internet was invented. The museum’s displays seek to inspire its visitors to gain an interest in engineering, science, and tech, and to understand the effect technology has had on transmissions and daily life.

Computer and Communications Museum of Ireland bag policy

You’ll have to make a reservation to gain access to the museum, but you can enter free of charge. While reserving your spot, go onto the Bounce app and complete your booking for baggage storage at the same time. That way, you don’t have to go back to your hotel to drop off your belongings before your visit.

This is just a taste of the unique kinds of museums you can find in Galway, and there are so many more waiting for you to explore. Before going to a museum, research to see if the museum has a bag policy and available luggage lockers on site. If they don’t allow bags inside, there’s no need to panic. Simply put the full address into the Bounce app search bar, and you’ll get a list of storage spots close by.

Shopping in Galway

Galway is still a little old-fashioned in some parts where shopping is concerned, and in others, it’s completely modern. In this Irish city, you'll be able to wander down shop-lined cobbled streets and alleys, browse indoor shopping centers full of top name stores, and run across undeniably quaint curiosity shops. There’s really something for everyone. Take a look at a few of the options below.

The Latin Quarter

While the Latin Quarter may seem a strange name for a district in an Irish city, it's the oldest part of town and often referred to as its cultural heart. The Latin Quarter spreads its reach from the Spanish Arch to Middle Street in a maze of alleyways and cobbled streets where, if there weren’t modern goods in the shop windows, you'd swear you'd been warped back in time. This is a shopping spot with a great atmosphere and is particularly attractive during the festive seasons when all the Christmas decorations and lighting are up.  

Eyre Square Centre

The Eyre Square Centre is a huge shopping complex in Galway that can't be called anything other than totally modern. This indoor mall contains over seventy stores stocking Irish-made and international goods, ranging from high fashion clothes and footwear to quality homeware. It's definitely the place to go shopping in Galway when the Irish weather isn't behaving itself.

My Shop... Granny Likes It

When you want an unusual souvenir or gift, My Shop... Granny Likes It is the shop you need to look in. Here, there's a wonderful collection of items made by local artisans that reflect Irish culture, its people's ingenuity, and their sense of humor. Step inside, and you’ll find shelf after shelf crammed with cool stuff that takes gift shopping to a whole new level. Even if you stop looking for gifts for your loved ones back home, we’re sure you’ll find a souvenir for yourself, too.

After you’ve been satisfied with shopping, you may want to venture elsewhere in Galway. There’s no need to drag your shopping bags around with you; we’ll watch over your new finds as you go sightseeing, out for dinner, or anywhere else you want to explore.

Restaurants in Galway

It can be quite cold a lot of the time in the west of Ireland, which is why food often tends to be on the hearty side. Traditional dishes like pies made from beef cooked in Guinness accompanied by sides of mashed potatoes, or the proverbial chips or creamy soups made from locally caught seafood are common. There are plenty of restaurants in Galway that offer fine dining too, and no matter where you go, you’ll be treated to truly delicious meals.

McSwiggan's

McSwiggan's is a traditional Irish restaurant that’s been serving food in Galway for over thirty years. At McSwiggan's, you can get an all-day lunch and a la carte seven days of the week from noon into the evening, and the restaurant has that real Irish pub feel to it. Popular items on their menu include clam chowder served with Guinness bread, fish and chips, and rib beef pie. No matter what you choose, you won’t leave hungry.

Kai Restaurant

For a change from typical Irish food, go to the Kai Restaurant. It's a colorful place with stone floors serving dishes like Roscommon lamb chops with a beetroot picada, or monkfish with mussels which are, on the whole, made from locally sourced ingredients. Kai Restaurant doesn't have a Michelin star just yet, but is well on the way to one as they've already been given a prestigious Michelin Bib Gourmand award.

Cava Bodega

When you drop in to Cava Bodega in Galway you won't find much Irish food on the menu but rather a selection of fifty different Spanish tapas made from local ingredients. That's a lot of dishes to choose from, and they're all served with exceptional panache in a contemporary bar-style environment. Think smoked duck or scallop pinchos, mushrooms in cider, salt cod fish cakes, and hake pil pil. Other than the delicious food and drinks, the colorful decor and friendly atmosphere will make you want to stay for a while.

Going out to eat is always a treat, especially with Galway's incredible selection of restaurants. While enjoying your meal, don’t let your baggage get in the way or take up space. Store your belongings at any of our luggage storage locations in the area and pick them up once you’re done with your meal.
