Overview

Antiquated arches and other buildings in this riverside area were acquired by Galway Corporation, the central administrative body for the region and renovated to form the Galway City Museum. Enter the museum through the Ardfry portals and you'll find Clare Sheridan's studio, housing a variety of striking pieces. The exhibits on display are currently somewhat overcrowded. However, Galway Corporation has plans to extend the museum into the adjacent buildings. The visitor can ascend the winding, cast-iron staircase to the exhibition gallery and catch sweeping views of Wolfe Tone Bridge, the Clare hills and the Corrib estuary with its magnificent white swans.
